Chris Kreider was released from the hospital on Tuesday following his rib resection surgery.
Kreider had the operation on Sunday and as previously reported, it was a success. The procedure was apparently necessitated by the blood clot discovered in his arm on Dec. 27, so he's dealing with one overall issue rather than two separate conditions. It's not clear how long he'll be sidelined for, but he won't be re-evaluated for another six weeks. Jan 10 - 6:59 AM

Chris Kreider underwent successful rib resection surgery on Sunday.

Kreider will be re-evaluated in six weeks and he is still out indefinitely. Kreider hasn't played since Dec. 27 after a blood clot was discovered in his arm.
Jan 9 - 4:51 PM

Chris Kreider, who is sidelined with a blood clot in his right arm, will have surgery to have his rib resected.

Kreider was already considered sidelined indefinitely so it's hard to say how this will impact his recovery. The Rangers haven't provided additional information yet, but it seems likely that this is addressing an issue that's entirely separate from his recently diagnosed blood clot.
Jan 5 - 12:32 PM

Chris Kreider (blood clot) is in good spirits.

Kreider has the blood clot in his right arm and will meet with the Rangers medical staff this week to determine the course of action to resolve the issue. "I saw Chris [Saturday] at the [practice] rink," coach Alain Vigneault said. "He was in good spirits and he’ll probably come down [Monday] to see his teammates." The Rangers play Buffalo in the Winter Classic Monday. Consider Kreider out indefinitely for now.

The Rangers are waiting for the results of further testing after Chris Kreider was diagnosed with a blood clot in his right arm.

Those results should give the Rangers insight into how long Kreider will be sidelined for. The Post suggests that a best case scenario would be a six-to-eight week timetable, but he might be gone for significantly longer than that. "The only thing I know is just before the first period, Chris felt some swelling in his arm. The docs checked him out and didn’t see anything out of the ordinary," said Rangers coach Alain Vigneault, referring to Wednesday's game. "But between the first and the second, it got to the point where it was out of the ordinary, and so he was sent to the hospital to have it checked out."

Chris Kreider scored twice and added an assist in a 5-4 loss to the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night.

Kreider rallied the troops in an attempted comeback on Tuesday. New York was down 3-0 after the first and 4-1 in the second before he and Pavel Buchnevich scored to tie the game at four goals apiece. Alas, the Panthers snatched the victory in the third period. Kreider has 10 goals and 16 points in 25 games this season.

Chris Kreider picked up a pair of goals in Wednesday's 6-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes.

It took Kreider just 52 seconds to open the scoring in this game. His power play goal just 30 seconds into the third frame made it 4-1 for the Rangers at the time. Kreider now has seven goals and 12 points in 22 games this season. The goals put an end to his five-game goalless drought. Mike Zibanejad, Paul Carey and Jesper Fast (twice) also scored for New York.

Chris Kreider picked up his first goal of the season Saturday.

It was a power play effort. Kreider had three assists in his first three games but had been held off the scoresheet ever since. He had 53 points last season and he should get between 45-55 this year. Keep him in your lineup.

Rangers coach Alain Vigneault will be looking for more consistency out of Chris Kreider this season.

"Like I said [on Thursday], he’s not a kid anymore," Vigneault said of Kreider. "It’s his turn now. He’s got to become a real good voice in the room. We expect more from him and I know we’re going to get it." Kreider set career-highs last season with 28 goals and 53 points in 75 contests. It wouldn't be surprising to see the 26-year-old top those numbers in 2017-18, but we don't expect him to make a big jump.

Chris Kreider scored a goal in Tuesday's 4-2 elimination loss to the Ottawa Senators in Game 6.

The Rangers have officially been eliminated from the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Kreider cut Ottawa's lead to 3-2 just 53 seconds into the third period, but that's as close as the Rangers would come to tying the game. After not scoring in the first-round series against Montreal, Kreider found the back of the net three times in six games against Ottawa. He finishes the postseason with four points and 18 penalty minutes in 12 games.

Chris Kreider found the back of the net in a 4-1 win against Ottawa in Game 4 on Thursday.

It was just Kreider's second goal and third point in 10 playoff games. That's less than the Rangers would hope for from Kreider, but on the plus side his two goals have come in his last three games, so perhaps he's heating up. He had 28 goals and 53 points in 75 regular season games.
