Chris Kreider, Rangers Prospect, Named MVP Of Beanpot Tournament

New York Rangers prospect Chris Kreider earned MVP honors in the Beanpot Tournament as he and his Boston College squad defeated Northeastern, 7-6, in OT. Kreider scored two goals (both on the power play), and received the primary assist on the game-winning goal in OT. The 19-year-old forward also had a game-high eight shots in the victory.

In his sophomore season, Kreider, who was New York's 19th pick in the 2009 draft, has nine goals and 11 assists in 26 games, after recording 23 points in 38 games last year. The uber-prospect has twice been named to the USA World Juniors team: he had six goals and assist in 2010 WJC and had four goals and two assists in the 2011 WJC. He also scored in the NCAA Championship victory for BC against Wisconsin last year. The future looks bright for this Rangers' prospect, but it remains to be seen whether they can get him to leave school early a la Ryan McDonagh and Derek Stepan.
