Kreider (hand) will not play on Tuesday; could return on Saturday.

Kreider was listed as doubtful for Tuesday’s game but he has officially been ruled out. With Kreider out, Jayson Megna has been recalled and is expected to make his Rangers debut tonight. Rangers’ head coach Alain Vigneault is hopeful that Kreider will be back in the lineup on Saturday.

Kreider (neck) will be back in the lineup on Saturday.

Kreider missed Tuesday’s game vs. the Penguins, but will be back in the lineup tomorrow vs. Detroit. However, J.T Miller played well on the second line on Tuesday, so Kreider will return on the fourth line, which limits his fantasy value until he gets back into the top-6.

Kreider (neck) is doubtful for Monday’s game vs. Pittsburgh.

Kreider is experiencing neck spasms that could keep him out of tonight’s game vs. the Penguins. He reportedly took a tough spill in Sunday’s practice after a collision with a teammate. He likely won’t play tonight, which means Tanner Glass will get back into the lineup.

Kreider (personal) will be back in the Rangers lineup on Monday.

Kreider missed Saturday’s game due to the death of his grandfather but will play tonight vs. the Lightning. Kreider will skate with Derek Stepan and Martin St. Louis on the Rangers’ second line. He has 13 points (4G / 9A) in 22 games this season. Anthony Duclair will likely take a seat with Kreider back in.

The Rangers signed Chris Kreider to a two-year deal worth $4.95 million.

With John Tortorella out, Kreider, 23 got a real shot to make an impact last season. The speedy winger registered 17 goals and 20 assists (37 points) and a plus-14 rating in 66 games in his first full NHL season. He will likely play on the top line with Derek Stepan and Rick Nash again this season, which makes him a 25-goal candidate this season.

Kreider is out indefinitely after undergoing surgery on his hand Friday.

No surprise, that the original TSN report ends up being spot on. The original details from the Rangers were very vague, but now that Kreider has officially had the surgery it is safe to assume that he will miss the rest of the regular season and likely part of the playoffs.

Kreider will not play on Wednesday.

There was a report from Bob McKenzie that said he might have a broken hand and could miss one month. It was deleted rather quickly, so the nature of Kreider's injury is unknown at this time. The Rangers said he will not play tomorrow, but would provide no further update. Expect a more detailed injury report tom come on Wednesday.

The Rangers recalled Chris Kreider from Hartford (AHL).

Kreider has two goals and two assists in six games with Hartford. The Rangers don't play again until Thursday, but he was skating on the top-line this morning with Brad Richards and Derek Stepan. He was the 19th overall pick in 2009 but has yet to take the next step in his NHL career. This could be the chance he needs with all the injuries that have hit New York.

The 19th pick in the 2009 NHL Draft Chris Kreider, is in danger of being cut from the Rangers opening day roster.

Kreider has been average during the preseason and might have played himself off of New York's roster. “A lot of players are close but really haven’t shown me they can play at this level on a consistent basis,” head coach Alain Vigneault said. “There are still guys [with a chance] who are going to play [against the Kings] but they have to play better.”

#NYR Both Chris Kreider and J.T. Miller sent back to CT Whale. Neither player saw the ice in the third period Monday night.

Kreider had a strong run in the playoffs last season posting five goals and two assists in 18 games. With his play in the playoffs the Rangers were expecting more out of him this year. He has just two goals and one assist in 17 games.
