After taking an inadvertent Mika Zibanejad knee to the side of the head, the Rangers announced that Chris Kreider will not return to tonight’s game against the Detroit Red Wings.

You can see the play below, Kreider was sliding on his stomach and Zibanejad did his best to avoid the big winger.

For now you have to hope this is a precautionary move, but we will have to wait until after the game for more details.
