It was revealed today that Chris Kreider got a blood clot during last night’s game.

Kreider’s injury will probably keep him out of the lineup for an extended period of time. This will give Vinni Lettieri, who was called up today in response to the injury, a bit of time to show Rangers brass what he can do. Hopefully, this is a one-time thing for Kreider, as we’ve seen former Rangers forward Pascal Dupuis have to retire due to blood clots during the 2015-16 NHL season.
NYR announce Chris Kreider has a spontaneous blood clot. Out indefinitely. Arm felt strange and got worse after 1st period, so they pulled him and sent him to the hospital.
