New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has recalled forward Chris Kreider from the Connecticut Whale of the American Hockey League (AHL).

Chris Kreider

Kreider, 21, has registered one goal and three assists in six games since being assigned to Connecticut on April 3. He has recorded 12 goals and 11 assists for 23 points, along with 73 penalty minutes in 48 games this season. Kreider is tied for sixth on the team in goals, and ranks third on the Whale with six power play goals this season.

The 6-3, 230-pounder returns to the Rangers where he has registered two goals and one assist for three points in 17 games this season. Kreider tallied a point in consecutive games, including his first career regular season point with a goal on February 5 at New Jersey and his first career regular season assist on February 7 against the New York Islanders, after missing the previous five games, including four games due to injury.

Kreider made his NHL regular season debut in the season opener on January 19 at Boston.

The Boxford, Massachusetts native was originally selected by the Rangers as a first round choice, 19th overall, in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.
