RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

What a difference a year can make for the Rangers' budding forward. After making a splash in his NHL debut during the 2011-12 playoffs, Kreider spent most of the lockout-shortened season with the Hartford Wolf Pack (AHL), producing just 23 points in 47 games. Meanwhile, he played rather inconsistently in various third- and fourth-line situations with the big club. Despite logging just two goals, one assist and 19 shots on goal in 22 games at the NHL level, the sky’s the limit still for the Rangers' 2009 first-round pick (19th overall) out of Boston College. Additionally, the 6-3, 230-pound Kreider could be eligible at two positions (center and left wing) at some point this coming season. Both keeper and redraft owners should consider using a mid-to-late-round pick on the 22-year-old.

2012-13

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.

2010-11

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.

2009-10

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.
