The New York Rangers announced Friday afternoon that KReider underwent “successful” surgery Friday morning to remove a small bone fragment from his wrist, and his expected recovery timeline is two to four weeks.

Kreider, 31, played 81 of the Blueshirts’ regular season games and all 20 in the postseason, with his 52 goals tying Adam Graves for second all-time on the Rangers’ franchise single-season leaderboard. He also led the NHL with a franchise-record 26 power play goals and 11 game-winners.

The timeline means Kreider should be well past the surgery come training camp, and good to go as he enters year three of the seven-year deal he signed in February 2020.
