  • Kreider dished out an assist in 13:15 of ice time during Wednesday's 6-3 loss at Chicago. Kreider lifted the puck over a defender's stick on his backhand for a beautiful setup from behind the net on Mika Zibanejad's first-period goal. That assist was the power forward's first since Oct. 8. Kreider's lackluster production has led to a reduction in ice time, as he's skated under 15 minutes in three consecutive games.

  • Kreider scored his fourth goal of the season during Thursday's 2-1 win over Tampa Bay. Kreider has scored all four of his goals in the past six games, and it appears he's putting his early-season lull in the rearview mirror. The 26-year-old winger has endless upside and offers a cross-category profile, but he's beginning to run short on time to translate his high-end talent into the same level of fantasy production. This could still prove to be a buy-low spot, though.

  • Kreider scored a power-play goal on one of his seven shots in Tuesday's 6-4 win over the Golden Knights. Kreider's third-period tally ignited a four-goal rally that turned a 4-2 deficit into a 6-4 win. The power forward's strong offensive performance and ability to put the puck on net against inexperienced netminder Maxime Lagace didn't go unnoticed by coach Alain Vigneault, as Kreider skated 16:59 in this one after seeing fewer than 16 minutes in each of his previous four games.

  • With his team on the power play, Kreider found the back of the net for the first time this year in a 4-2 victory over Nashville on Saturday. Not only was it Kreider's first goal of the season, but it also snapped a five-game point drought. It's been a relatively slow start for the 26-year-old forward, who has scored 20-plus goals in three consecutive campaigns coming into the season. The Massachusetts native will try to ride the momentum when he faces off against San Jose on Monday.

  • Kreider set up two goals -- including one with the man advantage -- in Saturday's 8-5 road loss to the Maple Leafs. Although the top-line winger served his fantasy owners well by dropping a career-high 53 points (28 goals, 25 assists) last season, Rangers coach Alain Vigneault has challenged Kreider to be more consistent in 2017-18. He's a dual threat in the sense that he can score and dish with aplomb, but we can see the Massachusetts native reaching the elite tier if he does in fact become more of a consistent contributor on a game-to-game basis.
