It appears increasingly likely that the 2019-20 season will be a contract year for New York Rangers forward Chris Kreider.
Kreider's agent Matt Keator and Rangers general manager Jeff Gorton have yet to discuss what it would take to get the 28-year-old signed to a long-term contract, according to the New York Post's Larry Brooks.
"Not a number has been exchanged," Brooks added.
Kreider is set to become an unrestricted free agent after the upcoming season, and his name has been floated around in trade speculation because of the Rangers' rebuild and cap crunch. His deal comes with a $4.625 million cap hit for 2019-20 and an 11-team no-trade list.
