Krejci, 28, scored 19 goals and added 50 assists in 80 games with the Bruins last season. He would add four assists in 12 playoff games.

The Czech-born centre is entering the final season of a three-year, $15.75 million contract he signed prior to the 2012-13 season.

He was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent after the 2014-15 season.

Krejci was taken in the second round (63rd overall) in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft out of HC Kladno.

He had a career high in points in 2008-2009 when he scored 22 goals and added 51 assists.

Krejci has represented his country at two Olympics, 2010 and 2014, and two World Champions, claiming a bronze medal in 2012 in Finland.

With his new deal, Krejci becomes the highest-paid player on the Bruins.
