The upper-body injury that kept the New York Rangers’ Artemi Panarin out of Tuesday’s game against the New York Islanders will also keep him out of Saturday’s NHL all-star game (CBC, 8 p.m. ET).
Kreider, 28, will make his first all-star game appearance after registering 32 points (17 goals, 15 assists) over 48 games. He has 150 goals and 153 assists over eight seasons with the Rangers.
The Blue Jackets obtained him in a trade with Chicago after he played his first two seasons there but were unable to retain him as the Rangers signed him to a seven-year, $81.5 million US contract.
