Kreider opened the scoring in Friday's 4-2 win over the Kings with a power-play goal.
Kreider snapped a six-game goal drought one night after ending a three-game point drought. He only skated 12:30 in this one, but his 20 shifts were only two fewer than the 22 Kreider averaged over his previous 10 games. After scoring 28 goals a season ago, the power forward's on pace to replicate that total exactly with 11 tallies through 32 games.
Kreider broke a three-game scoring drought with a helper in a 3-2 defeat to Ottawa.
Kreider has the talent to produce some big numbers, but he's gone six games without a goal and has only produced two assists in December. We've seen his production come and go in streaks this year, so it might be worth a gamble to buy low on him for when his next streak comes, if your bench has space available.
Kreider recorded two goals, an assist, three shots, two blocked shots and took a minor penalty in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to Florida.
It's been a quiet start for the talented winger, but with 10 goals, 16 points and 66 shots through 25 games, the baseline is still in place for Kreider to take a run at a career year. Additionally, he's in the midst of a mini-heater with five goals and eight points through his past seven outings. This could prove to be an opportune buy-low spot.
Kreider scored a pair in a 6-1 rout of Carolina on Wednesday.
These were Kreider's first goals since Nov. 6 against Columbus, snapping a five-game goal drought. He's been inconsistent on offense and his defense hasn't made up for it, as his minus-5 is the worst of his career. His owners need this to be the start of something better.
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, and Kreider's lackluster production has led to a reduction in ice time, as he's skated under 15 minutes in three consecutive games.
