Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe spoke with Jeff Gorton on Friday

Gorton, now living in Westchester County, was reached via phone Friday as he made his way to watch top Rangers prospect Chris Kreider, the budding power forward for Boston College, play against UMass. Kreider, the 19th overall pick in 2009, is a junior and could turn pro when the Eagles’ season is done.

“He’s got a very nice skill set - first and foremost his speed, that’s his biggest asset,’’ Gorton said of the Boxford-raised Kreider. “And he has size, maybe 6-2 or 6-3 and 220 pounds. So he projects as a power forward as a pro, but that said, he’s still in college and whenever he’s ready to talk to us, that’s up to him.’’
