Kreider, who signed a four-year, $18.5 million contract on July 22, has three goals and three assists in New York’s first three games. According to the team, he is the first Ranger since Brian Leetch in 1992-93 to tally six points in New York’s first three games. He also became the first New York forward to record six points in three games to start a season since Bernie Nicholls and Darren Turcotte in 1990 -91.
