The Rangers announced on Friday that left winger Chris Kreider underwent successful surgery at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City to remove a small bone fragment from his wrist.

The team said the expected recovery time for Kreider is two to four weeks.

Kreider, who turned 31 in April and is the Rangers' longest-tenured player, is coming off a career-best season with 52 goals and 25 assists, including 26 power-play goals and 11 game-winning goals. He was also named to the All-Star Game for the second straight season.

Kreider tied Mika Zibanejad for the team lead with 10 goals in the playoffs as the Rangers advanced to the Eastern Conference Final, losing to the Lightning in six games.
