Report: Chris Kreider Signs Three-Year Deal With Rangers, Will Be Eligible to Play in PlayoffsChris Kreider already has one championship under his belt this season. Now, he’s looking to add another over the course of the next two months.

The Boston College standout has signed an entry-level contract with the New York Rangers, according to TSN’s Bob McKenzie. It’s technically a three-year deal, but because Kreider is expected to report to the Rangers on Wednesday for the playoffs, this season will count towards that deal.

The 21-year-old Kreider just wrapped up an impressive collegiate career at BC where he played three seasons with the Eagles. He recorded 23-22-45 totals in Boston College’s impressive run to a national title this season, and he also added 66 penalty minutes.

At 6-foot-3 and 225 pounds, the No. 19 overall pick in the 2009 draft gives the Rangers good size up front. The Boxford, Mass., is a tough player who only got stronger over his time with BC.

“I think that because I was here over the summer with the strength coach at BC was helpful and that was great in making improvements and putting on a little size and putting on some base strength,” he recently told

Kreider is expected to practice with the Rangers on Wednesday.
