Chris Kreider is in high demand.

Eight teams have informed the New York Rangers they have the winger at the top of their respective wish lists ahead of the Feb. 24 trade deadline, reports The Athletic's Pierre LeBrun.

The Rangers are reportedly seeking a return for Kreider equal to what they received for Kevin Hayes at last year's trade deadline. The Winnipeg Jets sent New York a first-round pick and forward Brendan Lemieux in that deal.
