New York Rangers are set to be without forward Chris Kreider for the foreseeable future after he had surgery to repair a hand injury, according to reports.  

He sustained the injury during the March 21st NHL clash between the Rangers and the Columbus Blue Jackets, and it seems despite the surgery he will be out indefinitely. 

Kreider was forced to miss the Rangers game Wednesday against the Philadelphia Flyers because of the injury, and as it stands the forward may miss out on the playoffs. 

The Rangers man had played two games since his injury, with outings against the New Jersey Devils and Phoenix Coyotes, but after having the surgery his short-term future is in ruins. 

The rookie has 37 points in 66 games in a solid season, which actually has him placed fourth amongst all rookies in NHL rookies. 

NY are currently second in the Metropolitan Division with 86 points, 11 points behind the division leading Pittsburgh Penguins, with eight regular season games remaining.
