Rangers return Kreider to AHL Connecticut

The New York Rangers announced Friday the team has returned forward Chris Kreider to the Connecticut Whale of the American Hockey League.

Kreider, who wasn't in the lineup Thursday for the Rangers' 4-3 shootout loss to the New York Islanders, has one goal and two points in seven games this season.

The 19th pick in the 2009 NHL Draft burst onto the scene in the Stanley Cup Playoffs last spring, posting five goals and seven points in 18 games.

Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
