Kreider scored a goal on six shots in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Hurricanes in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers.
Kreider struck 12 seconds into the second period, but that was the only puck to get past James Reimer in the contest. The Rangers' loss ended their season. Kreider had 24 goals, 45 points, 156 shots and a plus-13 rating in the regular season, and another goal and assist in three games during the short playoff run. The 29-year-old winger signed a seven-year extension with the Rangers in February -- expect to see him as a fixture in the top six for years to come.
Kreider (foot) told reporters his foot was back to normal, Mike Zeisberger of NHL.com reports, clearing the way for him to play if (once) the season resumes.
Kreider missed six contests due to his foot injury prior to the shutdown. Before getting hurt, the winger was bogged down in a five-game pointless streak, though that didn't stop him from reaching the 20-goal and 45-point thresholds this year. While the Rangers are technically sitting outside a playoff spot right now, the 28-year-old will be ready to go if the league picks up the regular season or expands the number of teams that make the postseason. If that's the case, Kreider figures to be a top-end fantasy option in DFS contests.

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.
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.
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.

An update on his status should be available in the coming days.

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.

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.

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.
