At Hockey’s Future, they are counting down the top 50 prospects in the NHL and the Rangers Chris Kreider is ranked 11th.
The title of this section of the rankings is “Chris Kreider on the verge of NHL stardom after incredible postseason performance”
On his skill set, HF writes “Possessing an impressive combination of size and speed, Kreider has the attributes to play both a power game and a skill game. His straight-line speed for someone his size makes him scary for opposing defenders, and his hard, quick release keeps goaltenders on their toes.”
They also add that Kreider is likely to benefit form time in the AHL due to the lockout.
In August of 2011, Grant Sonier said that Kreider was one of the top ten prospects in hockey.
