That's what the college announced. Rangers were really hoping he would turn pro, but the speedy forward, who missed the final part of his sophomore season with a broken jaw, is staying put. Kreider was the team's No. 1 pick in 2009 and was named the Rangers' top prospect by The Hockey News' recent Future Watch.
I'll have a story on Henrik Lundqvist up later and notes, lines and comments from Torts and other players after today's practice. They team will skate again tomorrow then leave for DC, and I will be shuttling south shortly afterward.
We're also scheduling a live chat from DC on Thursday, between games 1 and 2. Time TBA Wednesday. Get ready to jumpin, boys and girls.
