Kreider is on the Rangers reserve list(Unsigned Draft Choice). He is not playing for a club affiliated with the Rangers.
NHL teams assign players to the AHL at the NHL trade deadline to make them eligible for the AHL playoffs. The AHL has a clear day when the AHL playoff rosters are set. Players signing amateur tryout contracts in the AHL are allowed to play in the AHL playoffs after the AHL rosters are set.
