Kreider has been diagnosed with a blood clot in his right arm and is out indefinitely.

Kreider will return to the Rangers’ lineup on Tuesday.

Kreider has missed the last four games with a neck strain, but returns to the lineup tonight vs. the Blues. Kreider had a good start to the year, picking up seven points (3G / 4A) in five games. Kreider will be back on a line with Mika Zibanejad at centre and Mats Zuccarello will be on the right wing. Kreider is averaging 3:07 on the power-play and is second among Rangers’ forwards with 13:52 at even strength.

Kreider (neck) will not play on Sunday; expected to practice Monday, likely return on Tuesday.

Kreider will miss his fourth consecutive game with a neck strain, but he could be back on Tuesday. It is good news that his injury is not going to keep him out much longer, but the Rangers will take on the Lightning without Kreider.

Kreider (neck) remains day-to-day; not expected to play on Wednesday.

Kreider missed Tuesday’s practice and is not expected to be in the lineup on Wednesday. If Kreider doesn’t play, expect J.T. Miller to remain in the Rangers’ top-6. Monitor Kreider’s status during the morning skate, just to be sure he is not available.

The Rangers signed Chris Kreider to a four-year contract worth $18.5 million ($4.625M AAV).

Kreider, 25, posted a career-high 46 points (21G / 25A) in 2014-15 and followed it up with a nearly identical season in 2016-16, posting 21 goals and 22 assists (43 points) in 79 games. Kreider will once again skate in the Rangers’ top-6 this season, with either Derek Stepan and Mika Zibanejad in the middle. Kreider could be in for a breakout season, which includes his first 25-goal, 50-point season.
