Chris Kreider has been medically cleared and took part in Thursday's practice.

Kreider had been listed as out with an upper-body injury and it turns out it was cervical/spinal issues. "Some stuff that I’d been monitoring had been persistent and weren’t getting better," explained Kreider. "It was kind of scary, with the kind of symptoms that can parallel post-concussion. There were things I was doing for day-to-day treatment that didn’t help, so now I will backpedal a little and stick to simple stuff. Obviously, it was bothering me enough to have it all checked it out, but since going through all the tests, I definitely have a sense of peace of mind." Kreider will be back in the Rangers' lineup on Friday.

It's not clear how serious Chris Kreider's upper-body injury is.

Kreider missed his second straight game on Tuesday as the Rangers were hosted by Vancouver. Rangers coach Alain Vigneault was asked if Kreider was with the team or back in New York and he didn't answer that question. "He is in the process right now of going through the evaluation," Vigneault said instead. "We don’t have a further update than what I’ve given you, but I’m hoping that in the next 48 hours, we should have an update."

The injury to Chris Kreider could be a worry to the Rangers and fantasy owners.

Kreider missed four games a couple of weeks ago with neck spasms but coach Alain Vigneault refused to say what the problem is this time. "I’ve got no idea right now," Vigneault said. "I can’t speculate or whatever. He went through the meetings [Sunday] morning, and he’s not playing. That’s all I can tell you." There were clues in Saturday night's game as Kreider only played 2:38 in the third and nothing at all in the final 6:28. Consider him day-to-day for now but there should be an announcement out of New York (where Kreider went yesterday, leaving the team to continue its four game road trip) in the next few days. Reserve him for now.

Chris Kreider will indeed play with Mats Zuccarello and Mika Zibanejad in his return to the lineup on Tuesday.

Oscar Lindberg is expected to be a healthy scratch to make room for Kreider, who has missed the last four games due to a neck injury. He will look to continue his hot start to the year.
Oct 31 - 2:15 PM

Chris Kreider will likely line up with Mats Zuccarello and Mika Zibanejad when the Rangers play Tuesday against the Blues.

Kreider was red-hot when he left the lineup with a neck injury after the fifth game of the season as he had three goals and seven points. The Rangers have lots of offensive upside and the return of Kreider will only make things tougher on their opponents. Get ready to activate him if you placed him on your reserve list.
