The hope is that Kreider, after playing well in the last two World Junior Championships, winning an NCAA title and playing the last two years for Team USA at the World Championships, will take a big step forward statistically this season and dominate the NCAA’s and take BC on his back. He has the tools to be a star and should start working towards that this year.

“Education is very important to me … and regardless of how long it takes, I will finish my BC degree,” he said. “There is life after hockey, and whether it is after next year or regardless, it’s just one step closer to getting my degree, which is very important for myself and for my family. Obviously, I want to be a hockey player first and foremost, but I also feel I need to perform better at this level first.”
