Read: Chris Kreider Wants More Seasoning

Chris Kreider told Blueshirts United that he thinks he will be in a better position to play pro hockey after this coming season at BC.

He has played around 70 games, not counting the World Juniors or World Championships, the past two seasons.

Kreider says that he is also looking forward to his role as a leader for Boston College this season.

He said in the spring that he didn’t think he was ready to play in the NHL.

There are expectations from him, us, and the team for a big season for Chris. His talent level is unquestioned but he did look raw to me when I watched him at the World Championships. That is expected though for a player who is only 20 years old. He will be a big player for BC this season and his game will round out from that. Hopefully he can score some goals this season and step into the lineup next season.
