Rangers prospects Chris Kreider and Scott Stajcer were both named to this week’s The Hockey News “Hot List”…
Chris Kreider, C – Boston College Eagles (Hockey East)
The Americans have gone young at the worlds and Kreider is part of that cohort. He is reportedly returning to Boston College for his junior season next year, but playing with future New York Rangers teammate Derek Stepan will at least give the speedy pivot a taste of what’s to come. Kreider has two points in two games in Slovakia. Drafted 19th overall by the New York Rangers in 2009.
Scott Stajcer, G – Owen Sound Attack (OHL)
Playing a defensively tight Mississauga team, Stajcer will have to be at his best. Fortunately, that’s been his calling card lately. Returning from a hip injury, the big netminder has been lights-out for the Attack, losing just once in nine post-season decisions and posting a sizzling 2.08 GAA. Drafted 140th overall by the New York Rangers in 2009.
…i’ve seen a lot of talk on the blog lately about who’s going to be the Rangers goaltender of the future. Stajcer may be that guy.
…i hope Stepan and McD’s negotiating skills are good. Rangers need to get Kreider in the organization.
