BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Bruins are looking to put the gang back together on Monday by signing captain Patrice Bergeron and center David Craig, members of the 2011 Stanley Cup championship team, to one-year deals.

About three months after leaving the ice without any confirmation of his return, Bergeron signed a one-year contract with the Bruins. Hours later, the team announced that Kraić, who played in his native Czech Republic last season, would also return for the 2022-23 season.

“Obviously we are great friends and old friends,” Bergeron said in a teleconference with reporters. “I am very excited to be working with him and the other players.”

Bergeron won $2.5 million in incentives for $2.5 million and Krejci won $1 million with a potential $2 million more. Bergeron is fourth on the Original Six franchise’s all-time scoring list with 982 points, and Critich is ninth with 730.
