Christopher Kreider was born on April 30, 1991 in Boxford, Massachusetts. A product of Boston College, where he starred for three seasons, Kreider was selected in the first round, 19th overall, of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft by the New York Rangers. He also represented the United States at the World Junior Championships on two occasions (2010 and 2011), winning gold and bronze respectively.

Following the end of the 2011-12 college season Krieder inked a deal with the New York Rangers and joined the club for their playoff run. He would see action in 18 post-season games for the Rangers, scoring five goals and adding a pair of assists. His five goals were an NHL record for most playoff goals before playing his first regular season game.

Kreider had a breakout year during the 2014-15 season where he eclipsed his career highs in goals and points scoring 21 goals and 46 points in 80 games. He backed that up with another 21-goal campaign in 2015-16.

On the international stage, Kreider has also represented the United States twice at the World Championships in 2010 and 2011.
