Rangers' Chris Kreider: Resumes skating
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kreider (foot) resumed skating and stickhandling in a sweatsuit Tuesday, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports.

Kreider's recovery timetable hasn't changed, which means he'll be lucky to return before the regular season comes to a close April 4 against the Blackhawks, but it was nonetheless an encouraging sign to see him back on the ice Tuesday. If the Rangers are able to sneak into the playoffs, the 28-year-old winger will likely be ready to return at some point during Round 1. That'd be a huge boon to New York's postseason chances. as Kreider has been a force up front for the Rangers when healthy this season, having racked up 24 goals, 45 points and 116 hits in 63 games.

Rangers' Chris Kreider: Faces 4-6 week recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Jeff Gorton said Kreider (foot) will sit out 4-to-6 weeks as he recovers from a broken foot, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.

Kreider sustained this injury blocking a shot Feb. 28 against the Flyers, so the four-week timeline would have him returning March 28 against the Lightning. There's a lot of ground to cover between then and now, but even if it favors the six-week plan, the 28-year-old winger would be ready for a possible playoff run. For the time being, the Rangers have afforded Phil Di Giuseppe the first crack at Kreider's top-line role, but head coach David Quinn hasn't been shy about rotating other players into the top six.

Rangers' Chris Kreider: Officially no timetable to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach David Quinn said there's no timetable for Kreider (foot) to return, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.

Kreider broke his foot on a blocked shot in the first period of Friday's game against the Flyers. Despite the lack of an official timeline for his return, it's expected that the 28-year-old will miss a significant chunk of time given the nature of the injury. An update on his status should be available in the coming days.

Rangers' Chris Kreider: Breaks foot on blocked shot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kreider (foot) will not return to Friday's game against the Flyers.

Kreider suffered a fractured foot on a Philippe Myers shot in the first period. He took one shift after that, but ultimately retreated to the locker room, where the diagnosis was made. Losing Kreider is a massive blow to the Rangers and fantasy owners alike. He has 45 points, including 13 on the power play, through 63 appearances, but he'll likely be sidelined for multiple weeks at a minimum.

Rangers' Chris Kreider: Ready for cross-town clash
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kreider (illness) will play against the Islanders on Tuesday.

Kreider signed a seven-year contract worth $6.5 million annually Monday, and he'll focus on bringing the Blueshirts back to the playoffs for the first time in three years. The 28-year-old has been excellent over the last month, racking up seven goals and 13 points over 12 games.

Rangers' Chris Kreider: Dealing with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kreider, who signed a seven-year contract worth $6.5 million annually Monday, didn't practice due to an illness, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports.

With a fresh contract in tow, Kreider sat out of practice to try to recover from the illness. He's in danger of missing Tuesday's game versus the Islanders, but this shouldn't force him to miss too much time. The 28-year-old winger has racked up 45 points (24 goals, 21 assists) through 60 games, and he'll be an integral part of the Blueshirts' push for a playoff spot.

Rangers' Chris Kreider: Staying in Big Apple
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kreider signed a seven-year contract extension worth $6.5 million annually with the Rangers on Monday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

Perhaps the biggest name at the trade deadline is now off the board, as Kreider is locked down through the 2026-27 season. The 28-year-old winger is having a career year with 24 goals and 45 points through 60 games, and he has been a physical force, too, with 113 hits. The Rangers are in the playoff mix this year, sitting just four points out of the second wild-card spot, and the fact they chose not to move Kreider suggests they're not in rebuild mode.

Rangers' Chris Kreider: Three points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kreider scored a goal and tallied two assists in a 6-3 win over Chicago on Wednesday.

Kreider collected all three of his points in a third period that featured a total of seven goals. With 24 goals and 45 points on the year, the winger's price tag keeps increasing as the trade deadline gets closer. In his last eight contests, Kreider has finished with two or more points four times.

Rangers' Chris Kreider: Two points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kreider scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Friday's 3-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

After helping set up Pavel Buchnevich for the Rangers' opening goal just 22 seconds into the game, Kreider blasted home a one-timer from the faceoff circle late in the third period to snap a 1-1 tie. The 28-year-old remains dialed in, scoring 11 goals and 17 points in 17 games since the calendar flipped to 2020.

Rangers' Chris Kreider: Two more goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kreider scored twice, once with the man advantage, in a 4-1 win over Winnipeg on Tuesday.

Kreider is up to 22 goals this season and well on his way to his first 30-goal campaign. The winger's name keeps coming up in trade rumors, and if he keeps scoring goals at this pace, contending teams are going to have to pay up at the deadline to acquire him.

Rangers' Chris Kreider: Two points in return to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kreider (upper body) notched a goal and an assist with five shots and a plus-3 rating in a 5-3 win over Toronto on Wednesday.

Kreider missed one game with his injury but looked plenty healthy Wednesday, particularly on his first period goal when he powered his way to the net and notched his 19th goal of the year. Kreider also assisted on Mika Zibanejad's goal just six seconds earlier, giving him his second multi-point outing in the last three games. Kreider, who will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, will be a popular name leading up to the NHL's trade deadline later this month. The 28-year-old has 37 points and 58 PIM in 51 games.

Rangers' Chris Kreider: Slated to play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kreider (upper body) is expected to play in Wednesday's game versus the Maple Leafs, Rick Carpiniello of The Athletic reports.

Rangers faithful (and the teams hoping to trade for Kreider) can exhale, as the 28-year-old winger will return to the lineup after missing just one game after taking a knee to the head Saturday. Kreider will work on the top line, and he'll look to continue the momentum of a three-game point streak he posted prior to the injury.

Rangers' Chris Kreider: Status uncertain for Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kreider (upper body) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's matchup versus the Maple Leafs, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.

Kreider had the same status ahead of Monday's loss to the Stars but was ultimately ruled out. Phil Di Giuseppe filled in on the top line in Kreider's place and could remain there if the latter can't go.

Rangers' Chris Kreider: Sitting out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kreider (upper body) isn't in the lineup for Monday's game against the Stars, Rick Carpiniello of The Athletic reports.

Kreider came into the game considered a game-time call after he suffered an ugly injury in Saturday's win against Detroit. The 28-year-old will be a major loss for the Rangers, especially considering he's racked up nine points in his past nine games. In his stead, Phil Di Giuseppe will draw into the lineup, and expect the team to update Kreider's status ahead of Wednesday's game against Toronto.

Rangers' Chris Kreider: Game-time call Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kreider (upper body) is considered a game-time decision for Monday's game versus the Stars, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports.

Kreider suffered an ugly injury in Saturday's win over Detroit, as he took Mika Zibanejad's knee to his head. It's a positive sign that the door's at least open for him to return to the lineup. The 28-year-old has nine points (six goals, three assists) over the last nine games, and this injury likely won't scare off teams looking to trade for him.

Rangers' Chris Kreider: Injury not considered serious
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kreider (upper body) isn't expected to miss much time, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.

Kreider took an accidental knee to the head from teammate Mika Zibanejad in Saturday's game against the Red Wings. While the winger's status for Monday's home game versus the Stars is still up in the air, it doesn't seem like he'll be out long. Per Stephenson, coach David Quinn said the injury "looked scarier than it turned out to be."

Rangers' Chris Kreider: Will not return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kreider (upper body) will not return to Saturday's game against Detroit.

Kreider took a knee to the head when he went down early in the game. It remains to be seen how serious his injury is, but Kreider's next chance to play will come Monday at home versus the Stars.

Rangers' Chris Kreider: Two points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kreider scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 4-2 win over the Red Wings.

After replacing teammate Artemi Panarin in the All-Star Game, Kreider kept his momentum going coming out the break. The 28-year-old now has an impressive 12 goals and 21 points in his last 21 contests.

January 22, 2020 06:00 PM
Rangers' Chris Kreider: Heading to All-Star Game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kreider will represent the Metropolitan Division in place of teammate Artemi Panarin (upper body) at the All-Star Game.

Kreider started the season quite slow with just 13 points over the first 28 games, but he's made a quick turnaround and earned an All-Star bid with 11 goals and 19 points over the last 20 contests. The 28-year-old winger will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and there's a good chance he's wearing a new sweater after the trade deadline.

Rangers' Chris Kreider: Pots late winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kreider scored the game-winning goal on the power play in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Islanders.

Kreider added three shots, three hits and two PIM in the physical affair. He made amends by scoring the winner with 25 seconds remaining after being whistled for goalie interference earlier in the third period. The power forward has lit the lamp nine times in his last 14 games, adding five assists in that stretch for a point-per-game pace.
