According to Czech television reporter Zdenek Matejovsky, David Krejci has dropped out of the World Cup of Hockey.

Krejci, who has skated this week at Warrior Ice Arena with teammates, is coming off April hip surgery. He said Monday that he was in touch with the Czech team weekly and that the team was aware that he might not play. "If you asked me a long time ago, then yes, but right now I just want to get to 100 percent," Krejci said Monday. "If I'm ready, then that will be awesome, but if not, you have to do what you have to do to be 100 percent." Krejci expects to be ready for the start of the NHL season.
