In this latest installment of CNBC's summer reading series Chris Kreider, a forward with the New York Rangers, provides his top picks for the season. The Boxford, Mass., native and first- round draft pick in 2009, set career highs in the 2014-15 season in goals, assists and points.
In the summer, I split my time between New York and Massachusetts, where I grew up. I try to relax as much as I can and wind down from the season so I can be mentally and physically prepared for the following year. This past week, I took part in Rangers Youth Camp presented by Chase. I enjoy getting on the ice with the young kids; it's fun to see their passion for the game that I love.
