Krejci had one wisdom tooth removed, along with a couple of other teeth, on Monday and needed to miss practice. He was back on the ice Tuesday and Wednesday at Ristuccia Arena and will be ready for the 5-2-1 Maple Leafs.
He said it’s been a little difficult to eat, but he’s fine. Even skating hasn’t been an issue with the wind getting into his mouth.
“It doesn’t feel that bad, actually,” he said. “I feel pretty good.”
As far as facing his former teammate again, Krejci is focusing on his own game.
“[Kessel’s] having a pretty good start,” Krejci said. “
Hopefully we’ll make it hard on him, and make him want to quit
and hope he has a bad game, so we can focus on our own game.”
Kessel has 7 goals and 2 assists for 9 points in 8 games for the Maple Leafs this season.
Maybe English isn't your 1st language but that doesn't say he quits.
No question Kessel doesn't like contact, doesn't mean he quits. You should watch him this year, he's been fantastic.
