HOCKEY HISTORY Go to column
New York Rangers Rookie Chris Kreider is rewriting the NHL Records books in Spectacular Fashion. The kid can score at any level, and he thrives with pressure, and winning results follow him at every level of Ice Hockey he has played.
While Playing for the Boston College Eagles, Kreider scored a goal in the 2010 NCAA title game in which Boston College defeated the University of Wisconsin to win the NCAA National Title and was named to the 2010 Hockey East All-Rookie Team. He also scored six goals for the Gold Medal Winning USA IIHF World Championship Team in 2010. Kreider was chosen to represent the United States once again at the 2011 World Junior Ice Hockey, and led the team with four goals in six games as the USA won the bronze medal. Two of his goals were scored in the bronze medal game, and he was named the USA's best player for that game. Kreider's ten goals in WJC play ties him with John Leclair and Mike Modano for third all time among USA players, behind just Jeremy Roenick's 13 and Brian Gionta's 11. Kreider was also selected to the United States National team to compete in the 2011 IIHF World Men's Ice Hockey Championship held in Slovakia.
Kreider was named Most Valuable Player of the 2011 Beanpot Tournament, as Boston College won the tournament for the second straight time. In 2011-12, he won a second NCAA title with Boston College, and led the team in scoring with 23 goals and 45 points in 44 games. Kreider's 23 goals were 2nd overall in Hockey East and tied for 8th in the NCAA and his 45 points were 5th in Hockey East and tied for 19th in the NCAA. He also tied for the Hockey East lead in game winning goals with 5, short handed goals with 3 and short handed points with 5. He also finished in the top 10 in Hockey East with 7 power play goals and 17 power play points.
Now playing for the New York Rangers after debuting on April 16, 2012 in a playoff game vs the Ottawa Senators, it didn't take long for Kreider to get back in the habit of scoring big goals, as he does here with his 1st NHL Goal on April 23, 2012 vs Ottawa Senators - A Game Winner.
