Chris Kreider: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Kreider was a breath of fresh air for the Rangers in this past Spring's playoffs, as he matched a record for rookies that began their careers in the postseason with five goals, turning many heads in the process. As such, the former Boston College star will enter the 2012-13 campaign with extremely high expecations but owners shoud be careful not to overreach for the 21-year-old winger. That's not to say that he won't be a fantasy asset this season, but he'll likely be confined to the Blueshirts' third line, so his output may not match his draft position. Temper your expectations, but the potential certainly is there for Kreider to produce; those in keeper leagues will have to pull the trigger on him early if they want his services.
Kreider is a goal scorer with blazing speed and a hard shot, and he used both to help Boston College win a National Championship in 2010. Given that the Rangers picked him up as recently as the 2009 NHL Entry Draft and he's just 19 years old, Kreider will first have to pay his dues outside of the NHL.
The Rangers took Kreider 19th overall in this past June's draft. The 18-year old will likely be headed to juniors this season. He's about as fast on skates as them come and has a big shot, so he could make an impact down the line, though not for a few years.
