His shot is above average as well. Stickhandling...kind of depends, every once and awhile you see him pull something but really he benefits more from puck control than deking guys. He can cycle along the boards or drive to the net and keep the puck on his stick

Aside from headhunting for big open ice hits I'm not sure Kreider could effectively play more physically or forecheck harder. He finishes his checks just about every time and makes it hurt while he's at it, and he uses his speed to forecheck and take the puck away before the other teams D can move it well. He's probably the teams best forechecker right now, not really sure what else he could do to make it better since he already is always going in hard to take the puck away or make a hit.
