Rangers' Kreider Returns To Ice

News: Chris Kreider (neck spasms) was back on the ice for Wednesday's practice, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Chris Kreider was scratched from Monday's game against the Penguins due to the injury, but his participation in practice suggests the ailment isn't anything too serious. Unless coach Alain Vigneault indicates otherwise, expect Kreider to rejoin the lineup Saturday in Vancouver.

Rangers' Kreider Out Monday

News: Chris Kreider (neck) will not play Monday against the Penguins.
Analysis: Chris Kreider was not expected to play Monday, so his absence should not come as a surprise. J.T. Miller will take Kreider's spot in the Rangers' lineup.

Rangers' Kreider Doubtful For Monday

News: Chris Kreider (neck spasms) is doubtful for Monday's game against the Penguins, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Chris Kreider collided with teammate Carl Hagelin at Sunday's practice, but avoided a concussion. He'll probably sit out Monday's game since the Rangers don't play again until Saturday against the Canucks, giving him some extra time to rest up.

Rangers' Kreider Leaves Practice With Injury

News: Chris Kreider had to head to the locker room during Sunday's practice after a collision with Carl Hagelin, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.
Analysis: It appears as if the injury is an upper-body ailment, but the severity of it is unclear at this point. Chris Kreider has four goals and nine assists in 24 games played this season.

Rangers' Kreider Will Play Monday

News: Chris Kreider (personal) will return to action Monday against the Lightning, Larry Brooks of the New York Post reports.
Analysis: Chris Kreider missed Saturday's game after the death of his grandfather, but will suit up Monday. Anthony Duclair is expected to watch from the press box to open up a spot in the lineup for Kreider.

Rangers' Kreider Won't Play Saturday

News: Chris Kreider won't play Saturday due to the death of his grandfather, Jim Cerny of the Rangers' official site reports.
Analysis: Chris Kreider did play in Friday's game, recording an assist, but Saturday is a different story. The team also recalled J.T. Miller on Friday, who will likely replace him in the lineup.

Rangers' Kreider Adds Two Assists In Win

News: Chris Kreider dished out a pair of helpers in Sunday's 5-0 win over the Canadiens.
Analysis: Chris Kreider snapped a pair of six game droughts in the win, recording his first career points against Montreal and getting back on the scoresheet for the first time since Nov. 8. He tied a season-high by firing off seven shots, so if he keeps shooting the goals will come eventually. With 12 points through 20 games, he should top last year's total of 37.

Rangers' Kreider To Break Slump Against Habs?

News: Chris Kreider has yet to register a point and is a minus-3 in six career games against Montreal.
Analysis: While he loves to throw the body -- he has a career-high 23 hits against the Canadiens -- his career numbers don't exactly suggest an awakening from his current six-game point-scoring drought. Until his current skid, the 23-year-old Chris Kreider (plus-3) had registered 10 points (four goals) and 38 penalty minutes through 12 games, so it should only be a matter of time before the second-line winger turns things around.

Friday's Game Postponed For Rangers, Kreider

News: Chris Kreider and the Rangers had their scheduled game Friday against the Sabres postponed due to the extreme weather conditions in the Buffalo area, Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: With some parts of the region receiving up to six feet of snow this week, traveling to Buffalo would have proven quite treacherous for the Rangers had the game been played as scheduled. No make-up date has been announced yet for the game, but expect Chris Kreider to be in the lineup for the Rangers' next contest Sunday versus Montreal.

Rangers' Kreider: Point Streak At Three Games

News: Chris Kreider extended his current point streak to three games and four points (two goals, two assists) with a goal and an assist in Saturday's loss to Toronto.
Analysis: He's coming off a season where he potted 37 points in 66 games, so there's been no letdown in his game. He actually has 10 points in 13 games so far this season, so he's a solid play in deep formats.

Rangers' Kreider Unlikely To Be Penalized Further

News: Chris Kreider is not expected to face any additional discipline for his hit on Minnesota's Jonas Brodin on Monday night, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.
Analysis: Chris Kreider was assessed a five-minute major penalty and a game misconduct for the hit, and it appears that will be the extent of his punishment this time around. However, Kreider has already received several major penalties early this season, and he could face a suspension next time he finds himself in a similar situation.

Rangers' Kreider Facing Possible Suspension

News: Chris Kreider was ejected for a hit on Minnesota's Jonas Brodin near the end of the first period of Monday's 5-4 win.
Analysis: While the hit was much more incidental than teammate John Moore's hit on Erik Haula, Chris Kreider still gave Brodin a dangerous shove as the two neared the center boards at a decent speed vying for puck possession. Kreider, who received a five-minute major and a game misconduct for the hit, is beginning to earn a reputation as being a bit reckless with his size, and could receive a one-to-two-game suspension from new discipline czar Stephane Quintal. The 23-year-old first-line winger has six points (two goals) and a plus-4 rating with 38 penalty minutes through nine games played this season.

Rangers' Kreider Keys Win, Stuffs Stat Sheet

News: Chris Kreider scored the opening power-play goal, set up Kevin Klein's overtime winner, went plus-2 and collected four penalty minutes Tuesday against the Devils.
Analysis: An explosive day for Chris Kreider, who filled up the stat sheet in conventional formats. He's been progressively improving during his time in the league, and with six points in seven games to start this season, it looks like he could be in for a big scoring spike.

Rangers' Kreider Booted From Game For Instigating

News: Chris Kreider got an instigator penalty, a fighting major and a misconduct for challenging Jack Skille of Columbus to a fight after Skille landed a blind hit on Kreider's teammate, Mats Zuccarello in Saturday's game.
Analysis: Zucc had just come on the ice and in honesty, it seemed like Skille didn't see him and ended up clipping him. The game had already been chippy and this was another in-game escalation. There is a possibility of a suspension here, so you may lose Chris Kreider for a game or two. Watch and wait.

Rangers' Kreider Delivers Two Points In Opener

News: Chris Kreider picked up an assist and scored a gorgeous breakaway goal in Thursday's season-opening win over the Blues.
Analysis: The goal was truly a thing of beauty, as he used his speed to get away, then simply dominated Brian Elliott to put the puck home, but his hard work that resulted in Rick Nash's first goal of the game was just as impressive. Chris Kreider put up 37 points last year, but has the potential for 50 or even 60 this year if he can stick on the top line with Nash and Martin St. Louis.

Rangers, Kreider Strike Deal

News: Chris Kreider was able to avoid an arbitration hearing by agreeing with the Rangers on a two-year, $4.95 million contract Wednesday, The Record's Andrew Gross reports.
Analysis: The 23-year-old reached the deal just before his scheduled 9 a.m. hearing, leaving the Rangers with approximately $6 million remaining under the salary cap. As a rookie last season, Chris Kreider produced 17 goals and 20 assists in 66 games before hand surgery in late March cost him much of the final quarter of the campaign. He ended up providing a big boost to the Rangers in the playoffs as they made their run to the Stanley Cup Finals, totaling five goals and eight assists in 15 contests.

Rangers' Kreider: Arbitration Bound

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.
