New York Ranger’s prospect Vitali Kravtsov will miss today’s game against Dynamo. He was injured in his last game and may be placed on the injured list. There is no update on the severity of the injury or how long Kravtsov will be out.

The injury was reported by Gillian Kemmerer.

Kravtsov has done very well over in the KHL, as he already has as many goals in 11 games this season in the KHL than he did in 39 games in the AHL before the COVID-19 shutdown.

The young Russian-born player was the Rangers’ first-round pick in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft (ninth overall). He recorded seven points in his KHL team’s first seven games.
