Rangers' Chris Kreider looks to continue scoring surge against Kings

Nearly two years ago, Chris Kreider was a candidate to be traded before eventually signing a seven-year contract extension.

Now Kreider is tied with Alex Ovechkin for the league lead with 29 goals and he attempts to continue his surge Monday night when the New York Rangers host the Los Angeles Kings.

Kreider agreed to the contract extension on Feb. 24, 2020, on the same day as the NHL's trade deadline as he was in the midst of scoring 24 goals in 63 games during a truncated season. He scored 20 goals in 50 games last season during a 56-game campaign but is in the midst of a career season two years into the contract.
