Rumor: New York Rangers listening to offers on 50-goal scoring star

BY TOM BANKS    AUGUST 23, 2023  (4:54)
The New York Rangers have assembled one of the most talented lineups in the NHL, but unfortunately, after a rough outing in last seasons Stanley Cup Playoffs, this is a team potentially ready to make a big move.

A home grown stud

Enter Chris Kreider, who has been with the Rangers since he was drafted No. 19 overall way back in 2009, playing in 733 games over that time and becoming a star that this franchise can build around.


Over the past two seasons, he's stepped it up even further, tallying 88 goals and 131 points as they look to become a genuine playoff threat, but now, they could be on the verge of a big move.

Breaking up the core?



According to a report from Eklund of Hockey Buzz, the Rangers are now receiving calls on No. 20, and while it's unclear how interested they are in a move, it's very noteworthy.

That report states that the Wild, Red Wings and Avalanche in particular are chasing the 32-year old veteran, and if it gets to the point of a move, expect a major blockbuster that could shake the foundations of the NHL.
