Ankle Still Bothering Kreider

During a recent live chat at the New York Ranger website, Jim Cerny reports that Chris Kreider's ankle, which had a bone chip due to a blocked shot while playing for the Whale during the lockout, is still not 100%.

Cerny did add that Kreider expects the ankle to be 100% by camp.

Kreider was originally said to be ok, but was eventually shut down for a week after struggling with the injury to start the NHL season.

…not going to blame the ankle for Kreider's inconsistencies last season, as he struggled with the Whale during the lockout before the injury. Relieved to hear he'll be completely healed by camp.

…despite the bum ankle, I'm expecting Kreider to flourish in AV's system which emphasizes skating and play making. I'm fully expecting a 25-30 goal season.
