Chris Kreider News
New York Rangers winger Chris Kreider (upper body) will miss a second consecutive game Sunday versus Montreal. He was initially doubtful for the contest but has now been officially ruled out. Kreider sustained an upper-body injury against Minnesota on Tuesday and has been forced to exit the lineup for the first time this season. Alexis Lafreniere was promoted to his spot on the first line for Thursday's clash with the Stars and looks set to continue in the role Sunday. The 21-year-old gets a great chance to boost his scoring numbers against a team that allows 3.74 goals per game.
New York Rangers winger Chris Kreider (upper body) has been ruled out for Thursday's meeting with Dallas. He was hurt Tuesday against Minnesota and the next game simply comes too soon for Kreider to be healthy again. The 31-year-old will miss his first game of the season. Through 42 appearances, Kreider has tallied 19 goals and 30 points. Alexis Lafreniere took over his spot on the top line in Wednesday's practice. The former No. 1 pick, who has managed a measly five goals and 18 points this season, will get a big opportunity to impress Thursday.
New York Rangers winger Chris Kreider had to leave Tuesday's game against Minnesota with an upper-body injury. He exited in the third period, finishing scoreless in 16:52 of ice time. Follow forward Julien Gauthier also sustained an upper-body injury in the game, and the lack of options eventually led to the top line playing massive minutes, alongside second-line center Vincent Trocheck. Both players will be re-evaluated on Wednesday. Kreider would be a massive miss in many ways for the Rangers, as he is one of the biggest goal threats on the team and always brings the physicality into games. Entering Tuesday's action, the 31-year-old had scored three goals in four games, and Kreider is on 19 goals and 30 points for the whole campaign.
New York Rangers winger Chris Kreider put a stop to a scoring drought with a two-goal performance in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Pittsburgh. He opened the scoring with just 22 seconds played and made it a one-goal game in the middle of the final frame, but the Rangers couldn't keep their seven-game winning streak alive. It was an impressive run from the team, especially considering that its top goal-scorer was mostly anonymous during it. Prior to Tuesday's action, Kreider had recorded only one point in six games. The 31-year-old set very high standards last season with a 50-goal-year and his 16-goal effort in 34 games is definitely disappointing for some managers, but Kreider was never going to maintain a 20-percent shooting percentage. He has still been a good fantasy asset, adding 10 assists to his goals and producing 107 shots on goal with 63 hits.
