Note: Chris Kreider Could Have Been A Tailback

Chris Kreider is 6-3, 225 and projects out to be a speedy power forward at the NHL level.

Kreider has been called a “Prototypical power forward. You can hear him coming down the ice. He’s like an impending force when he’s hounding you on the puck.”

On the power, size and speed that Kreider has, Jerry York said on 1050 in early May “If he doesn’t grow up in eastern Massachusetts he probably ends up as a tailback at some major division one college.”

Dan Girardi said of Kreider during the playoffs, “he is such a well built human. He has the strength and power to fit in with us in the NHL.”
