For New York Rangers forward Chris Kreider, his dream has already come true this postseason.
Most young college players just hope that they will eventually sign a contract with the team that drafted them and one day play in the NHL. Kreider signed his three-year entry level contract with the New York Rangers on April 10, 2012, and not even a day later, he was practicing with the team.
Fresh off leading the Boston College Eagles to a National Championship in the Frozen Four—his second with the team—Kreider has already scored two goals for the Rangers this postseason, including the game winner in Game 1 against the Washington Capitals earlier Saturday afternoon.
Not only is Kreider producing for the Rangers, but also he is also taking advantage of all his opportunities, and he has shown that he could be a star on this New York Rangers team for years to come.
