Rangers' Vitali Kravtsov: Four points in 20 games as rookie
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Kravtsov showed more skill than his meager output suggests after coming over from the KHL midseason. The ninth overall selection in the 2018 draft should be a lock for the Rangers' roster next season barring an offseason trade.

Rangers' Vitali Kravtsov: Nabs first NHL goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' Vitali Kravtsov: Earns first NHL assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kravtsov posted an assist and two shots on goal in Sunday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Islanders.

Kravtsov picked up the secondary helper on a Brendan Smith goal in the second period. The assist was Kravtsov's first NHL point, earned in his fifth game since he joined the Rangers. 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.

Rangers' Vitali Kravtsov: Shifts to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kravtsov was promoted to the active roster Thursday, per CapFriendly.

Kravtsov is making his third straight appearance in Thursday's home game versus the Penguins. The 2018 ninth overall pick has yet to post his first NHL point, and he's stuck in the bottom six for now.

Rangers' Vitali Kravtsov: Off to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kravtsov was assigned to the taxi squad Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

Kravtsov's place in the lineup isn't in danger -- this is just a paper move. The 21-year-old Russian will remain in search of his first NHL point if he's promoted to the active roster for Thursday's game against the Penguins.

Rangers' Vitali Kravtsov: Back in lineup Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kravtsov was promoted to the active roster prior to Tuesday's game versus the Penguins, per CapFriendly.

Kravtsov is working in a fourth-line role. The first-round pick from 2018 should be expected to play more often than not over the final month of the regular season.

Rangers' Vitali Kravtsov: Shuffles to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kravtsov was reassigned to the Rangers' taxi squad Sunday, per CapFriendly.

Kravtsov made his NHL debut Saturday versus the Sabres, firing three shots on net in 10:45 of ice time. It wouldn't be surprising to see him back on the active roster soon.

Rangers' Vitali Kravtsov: Making NHL debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kravtsov will be promoted to the active roster for Saturday's game against the Sabres, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.

This will be Kravtsov's NHL debut. The 2018 ninth overall pick posted 16 goals and eight assists across 49 games with Traktor Chelyabinsk of the KHL this year before coming over to North America. It's unclear exactly where Kravtsov will draw into the lineup.

Rangers' Vitali Kravtsov: Set to practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kravtsov is expected to join the Rangers for Wednesday's practice session, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.

Kravtsov is getting closer to making his NHL debut after being selected by New York with the ninth overall pick in the 2018 NHL Draft. The Russian winger will join a talented group of recent draft picks that includes Alexis Lafreniere and Kaapo Kakko.

Rangers' Vitali Kravtsov: Added to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kravtsov was added to the Rangers' taxi squad Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

Kravtsov scored 16 goals and added eight assists across 49 KHL games before arriving in New York. The 2018 ninth overall pick has cleared COVID-19 protocol and can start practicing with the team soon. His NHL debut may not be too far away.

Rangers' Vitali Kravtsov: Arrives in New York
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kravtsov has arrived in New York and will undergo cardiac screening as a part of COVID-19 protocol before joining the team.

Kravtsov's KHL campaign ended earlier this month, and the 21-year-old finished with 16 goals and eight assists through 49 games. He collected another four points over five postseason contests. The 2018 ninth overall pick is aiming to make the leap back to North America. The 6-foot-3 winger may end up with AHL Hartford to start off, but the Rangers could recall him if he shines with the minor-league affiliate.

Rangers' Vitali Kravtsov: Set to join Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kravtsov is expected to join the Rangers in approximately two weeks, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.

Kravtsov has been playing for Traktor Chelyabinsk of the KHL this season, notching 16 goals and 24 points in 49 games, but it sounds like he'll be making the transition to North American hockey soon. The Rangers selected the 21-year-old forward with the ninth overall pick in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft.

Rangers' Vitali Kravtsov: Heads to KHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kravtsov will play for the Traktor Chelyabinsk of the KHL during the 2020-21 season, Corey Pronman of The Athletic reports.

While Kravtsov will begin the year in Russia, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today adds that the Rangers reserve the right to recall him at any point. The 2018 first-round pick (ninth overall) has yet to make his NHL debut, and he wasn't especially dominant with AHL Hartford last year, posting 15 points through 39 games. Perhaps the change of scenery can allow the 20-year-old to regain his confidence before trying to make the Rangers the following season.

Rangers' Vitali Kravtsov: Joins club ahead of camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kravtsov is with the Rangers for Phase 2 skates and will be part of the club's playoff training camp, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.

Kravtsov registered six goals and nine helpers in 39 games with AHL Hartford this season and figures to use the upcoming postseason as a way to break into the 23-man roster for the upcoming 2020-21 campaign. Selected by the organization with the ninth overall pick in the 2018 NHL Draft, the 20-year-old winger figures to make his NHL debut sooner rather than later.

Rangers' Vitali Kravtsov: Playing better in AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kravtsov picked up a pair of assists in AHL Hartford's 7-4 victory over Springfield on Wednesday.

Kravtsov now has six points in his last eight games. They might not be overwhelming numbers, but the Russian has played considerably better since his return to Hartford in late December following a brief stint in the KHL. The Rangers are dangling multiple players with the trade deadline approaching and it seems quite likely Kravtsov will spend the later portion of the season in the NHL.

Rangers' Vitali Kravtsov: Returns to AHL lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kravtsov picked up an assist in his return to the lineup for AHL Hartford on Tuesday.

Kravtsov returned to play in the KHL in late October before heading back to North America just days ago. He hadn't played a game for the Wolf Pack in more than two months. He began the night on the fourth line before being moved up late in a game in which Hartford was being blown out. His awkward start to the season aside, Kravtsov remains one of the game's elite offensive prospects and it's more likely then not he gets games with the Rangers late in the season.

Rangers' Vitali Kravtsov: Returning from Russia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kravtsov is leaving the KHL and will rejoin the Rangers organization.

Kravtsov started the year with AHL Hartford, appearing in five games and notching one assist. After just 11 contests with KHL Chelyabinsk, it appears the 2018 ninth-overall pick is coming back to North America. The 19-year-old will likely start back with the Wolf Pack but could earn a call-up before too long.

Rangers' Vitali Kravtsov: Headed back to KHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kravtsov secured a contract with Chelyabinsk of the KHL on Friday, Larry Brooks for The New York Post reports.

After just five games in the AHL, Kravtsov will return to the KHL with Chelyabinsk. Per the conditions of his entry-level deal, the 19-year-old was free to move back to Russia after the club sent him down to the minors. If the winger can put together a solid season in the KHL, he could get a longer look in training camp ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

Rangers' Vitali Kravtsov: Surprise scratch Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kravtsov was a healthy scratch for AHL Hartford in their 4-3 overtime victory over Bridgeport on Sunday.

Kravtsov made it through Saturday's season opening win over Charlotte without issue, but the team elected to have him spend Sunday's contest in the press box. This doesn't appear to be a major issue at the moment as Kravtsov is apparently healthy, but the decision to have a 19-year-old top prospect sit out his club's second game of the season is a bit baffling.
