Vitali Kravtsov concluded his regular season yesterday with a great game-tying goal for Traktor. He scored with just 8 ticks left on the clock. The Rangers first round pick in 2018, finished the season with 16 goals and 24 points in 49 games.

Vitali Kravtsov Rangers bound?

Kravtsov’s 5th seed team Traktor plays 4th seed Salavat Yulaev in the opening round. The opening round begins on March 3, and if Traktor is eliminated he could be in New York or Hartford by mid to late March.

Should Traktor miraculously go the distance, Kravtsov would not be available until early May.
