Joining up with the team as they returned from their west coast road trip, forward Ondrej Kase skated with the Bruins for the first time since being acquired by Boston on Friday.

Kase skated on a line with David Krejci and Jake DeBrusk during the session. Krejci and Kase are both from the Czech Republic, and Kase told reporters during his introductory conference call he’s familiar with Krejci’s game.

“I think he is an unbelievable player, and I think anyone would want to play with him. He can the pass the puck very well, great passer. Unbelievable at passing. It’ll be very good to play with him.”

The Bruins return to game action Tuesday when they host Calgary, although head coach Bruce Cassidy told reporters he isn’t sure if Kase will be in the lineup.

If Kase isn’t ready to go against Calgary, he’d likely make his debut Thursday night when the Bruins host the Dallas Stars. That game could also be the debut for the Bruins other trade deadline acquisition Nick Ritchie.
