  • Rangers' Vitali Kravtsov: Signs extension with Rangers

    Kravtsov has signed a one-year, one-way contract extension with the Rangers, per agent Dan Milstein.

    Kravtsov posted six goals and seven assists for Chelyabinsk Traktor of the KHL this past year after failing to make the Rangers' opening-night roster. The 22-year-old winger has immense offensive talent and could add needed scoring depth to New York's lineup in 2022-23. Kravtsov logged two goals and two assists with the Rangers in 20 games in 2021.

  • Rangers' Vitali Kravtsov: Bound for KHL

  • Rangers' Vitali Kravtsov: Headed for Hartford

    Kravtsov was demoted to AHL Hartford on Monday.

    Kravtsov's relegation to the AHL certainly comes as a surprise after he put up two goals, two assists and 23 shots in 20 games for the Rangers last year. The Russian should still get several opportunities to play at the NHL level this season, though missing the Opening Night roster won't instill confidence in fantasy players.

  • Rangers' Vitali Kravtsov: Exits Friday's game

    Kravtsov (lower body) left Friday's preseason game against the Devils and will not return.

  • Rangers' Vitali Kravtsov: Four points in 20 games as rookie

    Kravtsov scored his second NHL goal in Saturday's 5-4 win over Boston. He finishes the season with two goals and two assists in 20 games.

  • Rangers' Vitali Kravtsov: Nabs first NHL goal

    Kravtsov scored a goal on his only shot in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Devils.

    The 21-year-old finally lit the lamp for the first time in his ninth NHL contest, hammering a one-timer from the right circle following a New Jersey turnover. Kravtsov, the ninth overall pick in 2018, is averaging less than 12 minutes of ice time this season so the breakout might not happen until 2021-22, but fantasy managers should keep him on their offseason radar.

  • Rangers' Vitali Kravtsov: Has first goal called back

    Kravtsov had one shot in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Devils and had a would-be goal overturned on replay.

    Kravtsov thought he had his first NHL goal in the third period, but the goal was taken away after review because one of his teammates was offside on the rush that led to Kravtsov's score. The 21-year-old Russian has been moved up and down the lineup, and while Kravtsov has just one assist through seven games, his ability to generate chances should lead to more production before long. He may not be a fantasy mainstay this season while he adjusts to the NHL level, but file Kravtsov's name away as a sleeper for next year.

The Russian winger produced 24 points in 49 outings with Traktor Chelyabinsk of the KHL this year, then joined the Rangers after his season in Russia was over. The 21-year-old winger probably won't make much of an impact in 2020-21, but he could be a name to monitor heading into next season.
