Over the weekend, Chris Kreider achieved a prestigious goal-scoring milestone: the 300th goal in the NHL. He needed 807 games to do so, which is a solid pace, however his former teammate Mats Zuccarello thinks the American gunner could have been even faster. Thanks to him.

Kreider? It ages like wine!

A few years ago, he broke fifty for the first time in his career, now, at thirty-two, he is on 35 accurate hits. And he continues to approach the greatest greats in NY Rangers history.

With 300 goals, he is third behind Jean Ratelle (336) and Rod Gilbert (406). What is its magic?

“He’s probably the best in the entire league in the area in front of the goal,” Zuccarello says in front of him. The creative Norwegian knows what he’s talking about. They spent dozens of matches side by side, shared a cabin in Manhattan for almost seven years.

Zuccarello used to be Kreider’s court recorder at one time, he could probably find him blind. “If the Riders hadn’t traded me, he would have hit 300 sooner,” he says, half joking.

He assisted Kreider on 38 shots, only three players helped him with more passes.

They parted ways in 2019, with Zuccarello moving to Dallas (currently playing for the Minnesota Wild), Kreider staying in the “Big Apple.”

After all, he has been loyal to the traditional club since the transition to the pros, which is of course another reason why he has climbed so high on the all-time scoring charts.

Although he has been playing without Zuccarello in recent years. His great friend, who congratulated him on his 300 goals as he should.

Heartily and with humor.
