New York Rangers forward Chris Kreider will be out indefinitely after being diagnosed with a blood clot in his right arm, the team announced.

Kreider suited up in Wednesday's game versus the Washington Capitals, but didn't return after the first period. Upon revealing the diagnosis, head coach Alain Vigneault said Kreider felt swelling in his arm prior to puck drop, and was immediately sent to the hospital once it worsened.

A six-to-eight week recovery is the best case scenario, per Larry Brooks of the New York Post.

In 37 games this season, Krieder has recorded 22 points, while logging 15:34 per contest.
