During the first intermission of the Rangers/Blackhawks game on NBCSN, Darren Dreger said that there might be update on the status of Chris Kreider by the end of this week.
Dreger said that the best case scenario for Kreider would be for him to miss 7-8 weeks and that Kreider is following instructions and resting.
Prior to the game against Chicago, Alain Vigneault said that he had no update right now on Kreider. (NYR)
Vigneault said that Kreider did not attend the Winter Classic because he felt he might be a distraction, something that Vigneault said would not be the case.
Vigneault said over the weekend that Kreider was in good spirits.
