BOSTON — Boston Bruins forward David Krejci will miss the rest of the Stanley playoffs, after suffering a dislocated right wrist Wednesday in Philadelphia.

The 24-year-old collided with Flyers captain Mike Richards in the first period of Boston’s 4-1 win, giving the Bruins a 3-0 advantage in their best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal.

Krejci, who scored four goals and four assists in nine National Hockey League playoff games, had surgery following the game at Union Memorial Hospital in Baltimore. He is expected to be ready for training camp this fall.

A native of the Czech Republic, Krejci scored 17 goals and 35 assists in 79 regular-season games. He signed a three-year contract extension last summer, which will keep him with the Bruins through the 2011-12 season.
