Patrice Bergeron was determined to see David Krejci return to the Bruins, regardless of his own future with the team.

Krejci Was Top Priority

They've both been integral parts of Boston's incredible season, and for the first time in their careers, the Bruins faced uncertainty regarding these veteran players.
As reported by Fluto Shinzawa from The Athletic, the Bruins kept a watchful eye on Krejci during his season in Czechia, with Bergeron playing a key role in luring his former teammate back to Boston.
Shinzawa shared:
Over the course of multiple calls, Bergeron delivered his pitch to his fellow center. With the two of them in place, a positive coach taking over and most of the roster returning, the 2022-23 Bruins would have a good chance of correcting what they believed was a premature Round 1 exit against Carolina.

‘'I knew that adding him to the mix and with myself coming back, I really liked what we had as a team already,'' Bergeron said.

It's worth noting that Bergeron highlighted a coaching change as a significant factor in his successful pitch, aligning with earlier rumors. Jim Montgomery has indeed been a refreshing presence for the Bruins, making a noticeable impact.
Following multiple conversations with not only Bergeron but also David Pastrnak, Krejci agreed to rejoin the team. On August 8th, 2022, the Bruins announced that both Bergeron and Krejci had signed one-year contracts.
