Despite repeated attempts by the New York Rangers to
convince him to sign this summer, Chris Kreider was determined to go back to
Boston College for his Junior season.
The combination of continuing his education being better prepared to be
an impact player once he turned pro were said to be the keys to Kreider’s
decision to return. After two games, all
side should be thrilled with Kreider’s decision as he is showing the domination
of college opposition that he never really found last season.
Kreider was dominant in both games of the North Dakota Ice
Breaker Invitational this weekend scoring two goals, one game winner, and
adding an assist en route to winning the Most Valuable Player honors as Boston
College claimed the trophy. This weekend
was more of what was expected of Kreider last season, but he never found his
groove only tallying 11 goals and 13 assists in 32 games.
There has never been a question concerning Kreider’s
physical skills as his ...

When the New York Rangers waived forward Sean Avery last week speculation and rumors ran rampant as to whether he would report to the Connecticut Whale (AHL) or explore other options. Today Avery answered the questions and end the rumors by reporting to the Whale. While Avery might have had options overseas or outside of the hockey world, this is his only option if he wants to...
One year ago Ryan McDonagh was coming off his first training
camp with the New York Rangers having shown well in the preseason, but having been
sent down to get more experience with the then Hartford Wolf Pack (AHL). McDonagh struggled early on in the AHL, but
few would believe that with the way he has grown since joining the Rangers on
January 3, 2011. When McDonagh...
The Rangers hit the ice for practice this afternoon for the first time since returning from Europe, and head coach John Tortorella was already rolling new offensive lines and defensive pairings. Today was also the first time defenseman Jeff Woywitka - claimed off of waivers last week - practiced with the team.
Here's what the lines on offense looked like, per the Daily News...
If you’ve been reading this blog for the past year, then you know that I am not a fan of Erik Christensen. I think he has tremendous skill, but is maddeningly inconsistent to the point where his value diminishes. His play frustrates me so much because he just seems so lackadaisical in when he doesn’t have the puck, especially in his own end. That said, in the battle between him...
The past couple of weeks have been a rollercoaster ride for Tim Erixon as he has gone from hero and presumed lock to make the team after the Traverse City Prospects Tournament to assigned to the minors during training camp and then back on the team making his professional debut in Sweden for the New York Rangers.
When the Rangers claimed Jeff Woywitka late last week many presumed...
Looks like we didn’t have to wait long to see new lines. At practice today, the Rangers showed off new lines and pairings in preparation for their Friday matchup at The World’s Crappiest Coliseum (I don’t mean that as a slight against the Islanders, who may turn some heads this year. I mean that as a slight against the arena itself. My shoes stick to the ground while I’m...
After taking two out of four points in Europe, one via overtime, the other via the shootout, the Rangers have slipped to 22nd in CBS sports recent power rankings list, and down to 17th in ESPN’s power rankings. CBS The Rangers didn’t win a game in Europe but did manage to secure two points because [...]
It's good to have Winnipeg back in the league, but Sean Avery's act has grown old.It's good to have Winnipeg back in the league, but Sean Avery's act has grown old.
The Rangers' plan to generate offense this season was to build a high-powered first line around center Brad Richards, while maintaining balance. So far, neither has happened, and John Tortorella isn't sure why. But he is not going to reshuffle his top lines for Saturday's game against the Islanders just because the Rangers scored only three goals in two games to end a...
Boston College plans to seek medical hardship waivers for career rushing leader Montel Harris and defensive tackle Kaleb Ramsey that would allow them to play next season.
Harris has been limited by a knee injury to just two games for the Eagles (1-5), running 31 times for 135 yards. He reinjured his left knee on against Wake Forest on Oct. 1, a game in which he set the record with...
Hockey has gone global. At least as global as it can at the moment, taken into consideration that little hockey is played in Latin America or Asia or Africa. But within in the hockey community, there are few isolated pockets anymore.
That’s why the New York Rangers Swedish goaltender Henrik Lundqvist’s mask is decorated with a commemorative “Liv 1” sticker just like all...
