Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe has those salary figures. He has written a few Kreider articles over the years with Matt Keator being quoted in them.

Former NHL scout Matt Keator, now a local player agent, figures Kreider is the fastest NHL prospect to come out of New England since David A. Jensen, the local speedster who was chosen 20th overall by the Whalers in the ’83 draft. Keator has been following Kreider’s career for years and figures his blend of athleticism and intelligence makes him a sure-shot first-rounder.

“You look at Blake Wheeler,’’ said Keator, who represents Wheeler, who just wrapped up his rookie season with the Bruins, “and comparing them at the same age, Chris’s game is more defined and has more grit. On skating ability, he could be in the league right now. There’s a lot more to it than that, of course, but this is a kid who will do the work and come along very quickly.’’
