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've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
