Rangers, Kreider agree on two-year deal
July 23, 2014
NEW YORK (AP) - Chris Kreider and the New York Rangers agreed on a two-year deal shortly before going to arbitration.
For the second straight day, the Rangers averted arbitration with a restricted free-agent forward. The 23-year-old Kreider made a deal Wednesday morning with an average salary of $2.475 million moments before the scheduled hearing. He will receive $2.35 million next season and $2.6 million during 2015-16.
On Tuesday, Mats Zuccarello agreed to a one-year, $3.5 million deal. New York has one more hearing scheduled with forward Derick Brassard on Monday.
Kreider had 17 goals and 20 assists in 66 regular-season games. During the playoffs, the left wing had five goals and eight assists in 15 games. He returned for Game 4 of New York's second-round series against Pittsburgh after missing a month with a broken left hand. He sat out nine regular-season games and 10 in the playoffs.
