Kreider Ranked 23rd Best Prospect in NHL

Hockey's Future continues their list of the top 50 NHL prospects with 11-25 and Chris Kreider lands at #23...

23. Chris Kreider – LW – New York Rangers
Height: 6-2, Weight: 201
A prototypical power forward, with excellent speed and good hands, Kreider was a 2009 first round selection of the New York Rangers. At the time of the draft, Krieder was playing prep school hockey, and in one season his game improved by leaps and bounds. Kreider went from playing prep school hockey to the 2010 World Junior Championships, the 2010 NCAA Championships, and the 2010 Men's World Championships. He has returned to Boston College for his sophomore 2010-11 season, but it is likely that Kreider will become a professional next fall, and compete for an NHL roster spot at that time.

...Kreider will be the Stepan of next year's training camp. As all as fans will be pushing for him big time to make the team. Time will only tell if he'll be ready.

23rd is pretty damn good if you look who's ahead of him, almost all players who are in NHL or about to be in the NHL
