Rangers recall Kreider after short demotion

Chris Kreider's demotion to the American Hockey League lasted one game.

Kreider, sent down Friday to Connecticut, was recalled by the New York Rangers a day later. He played for the Whale on Friday night but did not score in a 4-1 victory.

A sudden sensation when Kreider made his NHL debut during the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs, he has struggled in his first full season as a professional. Kreider has a goal and an assist in seven games for the Rangers this season, and he was a healthy scratch just before the demotion.

Quote of the Day

I would definitely love to play with him. He's a skilled player and over the years he definitely has shown that he can score a lot of goals. I think it would work out well.
