David Krejčí (born April 28, 1986) is a Czech professional ice hockey center currently playing for the Boston Bruins of the National Hockey League (NHL).

David Krejčí was the Boston Bruins' first pick in the second round of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft (63rd overall) He was drafted out of Czech junior leagues, having played for HC Kladno. Following his selection, he moved to North America to play major junior hockey in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) for the Gatineau Olympiques for two seasons.

Krejčí turned pro in 2006–07, playing for the Bruins' American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Providence Bruins. He played in his first NHL game on January 30, 2007 in a 7–1 loss against the Buffalo Sabres, but suffered a concussion from Buffalo's Adam Mair during his third shift. He recorded just 2:07 minutes of ice time. Krejčí played increasingly with Boston the following season, appearing in 56 NHL games to go with 25 games in Providence. On February 19, 2008, Krejčí was involved in a shootout tie-breaker round, in a Bruins road game against the Carolina Hurricanes, and scored to help the Bruins take the shootout 2–1. Krejčí's shootout tally would not, however, register as his first NHL goal as shootout goals do not count towards a player's statistical totals. Krejčí scored his first official NHL goal a week later, on February 26, against Martin Gerber of the Ottawa Senators, as the second Bruins goal in a 4–0 home-ice shutout. He finished his rookie NHL season with 6 goals and 27 points.
