News: Chris Kreider has filed for salary arbitration, according to TSN.ca.
Analysis: The top-six winger is coming off a near point-per-game output during the postseason and 37 in 66 regular-season games. The Rangers will likely go for a bridge contract for the 23-year-old speedster.

Kreider Scores In Rangers' Loss

News: Chris Kreider scored the Rangers' first goal in Friday's Game 5 loss to the Kings in a game that saw Los Angeles secure the Stanley Cup.
Analysis: Chris Kreider finished the finals with three points in five games and has emerged, again, as one of the more promising young players in a core of young talent on Broadway. Kreider missed a glorious breakaway chance in overtime. He finished the playoffs with 13 points, four of which came in one game against Montreal in the Eastern Conference finals.

Rangers' Kreider Has Four Points In Loss

News: Chris Kreider scored a goal and assisted on the Rangers' other three Game 5 tallies in Tuesday's 7-4 loss to Montreal.
Analysis: Chris Kreider's had a great series against the Canadiens, with three goals and eight points in five contests so far. This one was clearly his best yet, as he seems to be getting more and more comfortable using his size and speed to make plays.

Rangers' Kreider Back to His Old Tricks

News: Chris Kreider had a goal and an assist in Saturday's Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals, a 7-2 win over Montreal.
Analysis: Chris Kreider, who also had four hits and three shots on goal, has shown no hesitation about getting involved in everyday play, including crashing netminder Carey Price on a sweet breakaway. The sophomore first-line winger now has two goals and two assists through five postseason games.

Rangers' Kreider Gets Aggressive

News: Chris Kreider had four penalty minutes and 16-plus minutes of ice time in a 3-1, Game 6 win over Pittsburgh on Sunday.
Analysis: One was for roughing, the other for goalie interference. That's in addition to one shot on goal and four hits. Just two games into his postseason and the talented forward is getting back to his chippy ways. It's a good sign that the offense contributions will soon follow.

Rangers' Kreider Notches First Points Of Playoffs

News: Chris Kreider registered a goal and assist in Friday's Game 5 win over the Penguins.
Analysis: Chris Kreider looked shaky after returning from an absence of more than a month in Game 4, but he seemed to rediscover his regular season form Friday night. His first-period power-play goal was the Rangers' first tally with a man advantage in 10 games, while his assist on Kevin Klein's empty-netter in the third period ensured the Rangers would send the series back to New York for Game 6.

Mixed Return For Kreider in Rangers' Loss

News: Chris Kreider (hand) registered a minus-1 and 15:24 of total ice time in a 4-2 Game 4 loss to Pittsburgh on Wednesday.
Analysis: His speed and aggressiveness didn't go unnoticed, but aside from two penalty minutes midway through the third period, he had very little statistical (1 shot) impact on this one. The young Massachusetts native has had a small-sampling knack for goals in important games, so perhaps the 23-year-old to go out with a boom in Friday's elimination game.

Rangers' Kreider (Hand) Skates In Warm-Ups

News: Chris Kreider (hand) was on the ice for pre-game warmups, Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Chris Kreider was medically cleared to play prior to Wednesday's game, but it was uncertain whether or not he would take the ice. His presence in the pre-game skate is a good sign though, suggesting it is likely he will be in the lineup. He took line rushes with Rick Nash and Derek Stepan, which would place him on the Rangers' first line, should this be more than a smokescreen.

Rangers' Kreider Cleared To Play

News: Chris Kreider (hand) has been medically cleared to play, Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Head coach Alain Vigneault wouldn't confirm whether Chris Kreider will play in Wednesday's Game 4 or not, but did say the team is considering the winger day-to-day at this point. While there's a chance Kreider will suit up Wednesday, we probably won't know for sure until the official lineups are announced.

Rangers' Kreider At Morning Skate

News: Chris Kreider (hand) took part in the team's morning skate Wednesday, Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Chris Kreider was seen shooting and stickhandling during the morning skate, so it sounds like the team doctors have cleared him to play. There's no confirmation yet, but there's certainly a chance he'll be in the lineup for Game 4 against the Penguins on Wednesday night.

Rangers' Kreider Progressing

News: Chris Kreider (left hand) has been skating and coach Alain Vigneault indicated that the forward is slated to visit the doctor "shortly," reports Andrew Gross of The Record.
Analysis: It remains to be seen if Chris Kreider -- who last suited up on March 24 -- could return during the Rangers' current second-round series against the Penguins, but Vigneault suggested that more should be known of that front soon. "I think we're going to know here in a short time frame here," Vigneault said with reference to Kreider's status. "I don't know what short is, a day or a couple."

Rangers' Kreider To Play In Pens Series?

News: Chris Kreider (hand) practiced with the team on Sunday, again in a non-contact jersey, reports Andrew Gross of The Record.
Analysis: While the second year forward is certainly making progress, head coach Alain Vigneault is holding his cards close to the chest on this one and will not publicly state whether Chris Kreider could dress in the series against Pittsburgh. With the 23-year-old Massachusetts native still building strength in his surgically repaired hand, it's very likely Kreider will miss most, if not all of this series, so keep holding your breath until further notice.

Rangers' Kreider (Hand) Practices

News: Chris Kreider (hand) took part in Friday's practice, The Record reports.
Analysis: Chris Kreider donned a non-contact jersey for portions of Friday's morning skate, when his shooting reportedly appeared to be improving strength-wise. However, considering he has been sidelined since late March, Kreider will need more practice work before he can return to the Rangers' lineup.

Chris Kreider

Rangers' Kreider Skates, Shoots

News: Chris Kreider (hand) skated and took shots Wednesday, the New York Daily News reports.
Analysis: Chris Kreider won't play in Wednesday's Game 7 against the Flyers, but if the Rangers win and move on to Round 2, the team is hopeful that Kreider will be able to return to face the Penguins. The winger had 17 goals and 20 assists in 66 games before getting hurt.

Chris Kreider

Rangers' Kreider (Hand) Working On Conditioning

News: Chris Kreider (hand) went through conditional skating drills Saturday, The Record reports.
Analysis: Still recovering from surgery on his left hand, Chris Kreider did not do any shooting but was on the ice with an assistant coach going through conditional skating. An estimated return date has not been established, so it's difficult to speculate whether he'll make it back this season, particularly if the Rangers fail to advance past Philadelphia in the first round.

Chris Kreider

Rangers' Kreider (Hand) Remains Out Indefinitely

News: Chris Kreider (hand) did not practice Saturday and remains out indefinitely, The Record reports.
Analysis: Chris Kreider underwent surgery on his hand in late-March and has not taken the ice since Mar. 24. A date for his return has not been established, but the fact that he did not skate Saturday isn't a strong indication that he's close to coming back.

Rangers' Kreider Still Sidelined

News: Chris Kreider, who is bouncing back from surgery on his left hand, remains out indefinitely, The Record's Andrew Gross reports.
Analysis: Given his uncertain status at this stage, Chris Kreider -- who last played on March 24 -- makes for a risky roll for those in playoff formats, with the Rangers opening their postseason slate Thursday against the Flyers.

Rangers' Kreider Improving

News: Chris Kreider skated before practice Wednesday, reports Andrew Gross of The Bergen Record.
Analysis: It's the second consecutive day the talented young winger has skated prior to the team's official practice. Although he was observed wearing just a black brace and no glove, it certainly appears he's making quick progress for someone who just had surgery less than two weeks ago. However, with just two games remaining in the regular season, this news should only impact dynasty league owners. In his first full season in the NHL, Chris Kreider registered an outstanding plus-14 rating with 17 goals (six power-play tallies), 20 assists and 72 penalty minutes in 66 games played.

Rangers' Kreider Undergoes Hand Surgery

News: Chris Kreider (hand) underwent surgery on Friday and will be out indefinitely.
Analysis: Chris Kreider was considering the possibility of surgery for the past few days and decided to have it on Friday. He's expected to miss at least a month due to the broken hand, which would put his return in the middle of the playoffs if the Rangers are still alive.

Chris Kreider

Rangers' Kreider Considering Surgery

News: Chris Kreider (hand) may undergo surgery to repair his injured hand, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.
Analysis: As expected, Chris Kreider did suffer a hand injury, and should be considered out indefinitely. What's interesting is that the winger suffered the injury on March 21 against the Blue Jackets, and played two additional games with minimal pain. Head coach Alain Vigneault was adamant that no further damage was done by playing injured, but we'll likely never know for sure. Vigneault wasn't willing to say that Kreider would miss at least a month with the injury, as reported by TSN's Bob McKenzie a day earlier, but he did rule the forward out for the team's upcoming four-game road trip.

Rangers' Kreider To Miss Month With Hand Issue

News: Chris Kreider is expected to miss at least a month with a hand injury, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.
Analysis: According to McKenzie, Chris Kreider could be dealing with a broken bone in his hand, an injury likely stemming from Monday's game against the Coyotes. The Rangers will likely provide further information on Kreider's condition in the coming hours, but a lengthy absence would certainly be a devastating blow, especially if he's forced to miss time in the postseason.

Rangers' Kreider Scores 17th Goal Friday

News: Chris Kreider scored his 17th goal of the season during the Rangers' 4-2 win over Winnipeg on Friday.
Analysis: Chris Kreider now has three goals in his last four games and has 35 points in 61 games this season. He averages just over 16 minutes of ice time each game, but he seems to use that time wisely and maintain a fairly decent level of production.

3/9/2014

Chris Kreider, LW, NYR

Chris Kreider

Rangers' Kreider Notches Two Goals

News: Chris Kreider lit the lamp twice, was a plus-2, and had two penalty minutes against the Red Wings on Sunday.
Analysis: Chris Kreider now has 16 goals and 34 points in 58 games this year, a major improvement on his numbers from last season. He's also a plus-13, and his 70 PIM is a good number for a player who can help you in other fantasy categories.

Chris Kreider

Rangers' Kreider Notches Goal In Loss

News: Chris Kreider scored his 14th goal of the season in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Flyers.
Analysis: Chris Kreider's breakthrough season continues to roar on, as he now ranks fifth on the Rangers with 31 points over 54 games. The 22-year-old has been especially adept at avoiding long scoring slumps, making him less volatile than many of the other forwards out there.

Chris Kreider, LW, NYR Rangers' Kreider Quiet

Chris Kreider

Rangers' Kreider Quiet

News: Chris Kreider is currently mired in a five-game point-scoring drought.
Analysis: Despite his continued presence with forwards Rick Nash and Derek Stepan, the rookie has hit a speed bump in production. Although he's logged 10 minutes in sin-bin time, Chris Kreider has just three points (in one game) over his last ten tilts and is by far, enduring his worst slump of the season. Don't fret, whether it's Thursday against the Oilers or after the Olympic break, Kreider has too much pedigree not to return to the near point-per-game (30 points in 50 games) pace he was enjoying earlier this season.
