NY Rangers' Chris Kreider diagnosed with blood clot in right arm

The New York Rangers announced Thursday that forward Chris Kreider is out indefinitely due to a blood clot in his right arm.

Kreider left the Rangers' 1-0 victory over the Capitals following the first period with an unspecified injury. Reporters even speculated that perhaps Kreider was ill, though the team later stated he had an upper body injury, fueling speculation that he had a concussion. Blood clots can be life-threatening if not properly diagnosed and treated, so it's at least good to see that doctors discovered Kreider's issue before it could get any worse.

You have to feel for Kreider, who's managed 22 points in 37 games and has been integral to the team's power play. According to the Rangers, Kreider's symptoms upon leaving the game were consistent with those associated with a blood clot. He scored 21 or more goals each of the last three seasons.

The 26-year-old veteran enjoyed a career year in 2016-17, registering personal bests with 28 goals and 25 assists for 53 points.
