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.

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.
May 5 - 10:37 AM

Chris Kreider has accounted for just one assist in seven playoff contests.

He was in front of the net screening Ottawa goalie Craig Anderson when the Rangers scored their lone goal on Thursday in a 2-1 loss in Game 1 versus the Senators. If he keeps going to the net and parking himself there then he should be rewarded for it eventually. He also had four shots on goal in the contest. Kreider recorded only one assist in six matches in Round 1 versus Montreal.

He has now tied his career high of 46 points in just 62 games. He is an excellent fantasy option as he brings a nice blend of goals, points and penalty minutes to your lineup.
