The Rangers signed Chris Kreider to a four-year contract worth $18.5 million ($4.625M AAV).
Kreider, 25, posted a career-high 46 points (21G / 25A) in 2014-15 and followed it up with a nearly identical season in 2016-16, posting 21 goals and 22 assists (43 points) in 79 games. Kreider will once again skate in the Rangers’ top-6 this season, with either Derek Stepan and Mika Zibanejad in the middle. Kreider could be in for a breakout season, which includes his first 25-goal, 50-point season.
Kreider (hand) will return to the Rangers lineup on Monday.
Kreider has missed the last two games with a laceration on his hand, but he will be back in the lineup tonight vs. the Bruins. Kreider will replace Oscar Lindberg and skate on the third line. He has 18 points (6G / 12A) in 39 games this season.
Kreider (hand) will not play on Tuesday; could return on Saturday.
Kreider was listed as doubtful for Tuesday’s game but he has officially been ruled out. With Kreider out, Jayson Megna has been recalled and is expected to make his Rangers debut tonight. Rangers’ head coach Alain Vigneault is hopeful that Kreider will be back in the lineup on Saturday.
Kreider suffered a laceration on his hand in Saturday's loss in Florida and it looks like it will force him to miss Tuesday's game. Kreider missed Monday's practice, but shouldn't be considered anything more than day-to-day.
Kreider (neck) will be back in the lineup on Saturday.
Kreider missed Tuesday’s game vs. the Penguins, but will be back in the lineup tomorrow vs. Detroit. However, J.T Miller played well on the second line on Tuesday, so Kreider will return on the fourth line, which limits his fantasy value until he gets back into the top-6.
Kreider (neck) is doubtful for Monday’s game vs. Pittsburgh.
Kreider is experiencing neck spasms that could keep him out of tonight’s game vs. the Penguins. He reportedly took a tough spill in Sunday’s practice after a collision with a teammate. He likely won’t play tonight, which means Tanner Glass will get back into the lineup.
Kreider (personal) will be back in the Rangers lineup on Monday.
Kreider missed Saturday’s game due to the death of his grandfather but will play tonight vs. the Lightning. Kreider will skate with Derek Stepan and Martin St. Louis on the Rangers’ second line. He has 13 points (4G / 9A) in 22 games this season. Anthony Duclair will likely take a seat with Kreider back in.
The Rangers signed Chris Kreider to a two-year deal worth $4.95 million.
With John Tortorella out, Kreider, 23 got a real shot to make an impact last season. The speedy winger registered 17 goals and 20 assists (37 points) and a plus-14 rating in 66 games in his first full NHL season. He will likely play on the top line with Derek Stepan and Rick Nash again this season, which makes him a 25-goal candidate this season.
Kreider (hand) has been medically cleared to play, but is doubtful for game 4.
Head coach Alain Vigneault said the Kreider is day-to-day. It doesn't sound like he will return tonight in a crucial game for the Rangers. Kreider has not played since March 24th because of a broken hand.
Kreider (hand) skated again Friday, but still is not ready for game 1.
Kreider has been skating recently, but appeared to have his best day this morning. His shots were harder and his stick handling was better but he remains a ways away from returning to the Rangers' lineup.
