According to Bruce Garrioch, in the Ottawa Sun, the Rangers are searching for a top-six forward and looking to trade Chris Kreider.
He says that Kreider was once a top prospect but he has fallen out of favor with the organization.
Kreider has 4 points in six games with 16 shots on goal.
In June, Garrioch reported that the Rangers were quietly shopping JT Miller to try and acquire more established players.

Adam Rotter: If the Rangers are looking to deal Kreider, it would make some sense to keep him in Hartford where he is playing well and can re-establish his value. It could be a situation where the Rangers are only willing to part with Kreider for an established top-six forward rather than just trading him and getting a similar kind of prospect who may just need a change of scenery.
There was disappointment in the organization that Kreider didn’t grab a roster spot to start the year but the sense was that he is still a big part of their future.
