Kadri (lower-body) will miss 4-to-6 weeks.

The Avalanche originally listed Kadri as week-to-week but head coach Jared Bednar gave a more detailed timetable on Wednesday. Their second-line centre will miss at least one month, which means J.T. Compher will get an extended look in the top-6 and could put Colorado in the market for a centre at the trade deadline.

Kadri is week-to-week with a lower-body injury.

Kadri was forced to leave Sunday’s game with a lower-body injury and did not return. The timing could not be worse for Kadri, who has posted nine points (4G / 5A) in his last eight games, marking his hottest stretch of the season. Players like J.T. Compher and Tyson Jost will likely be force-fed top-6 minutes in Kadri’s absence.

Kadri (lower-body) will return to the Colorado lineup on Wednesday.

Kadri has missed the last three games with a lower-body injury but will play vs. the Flyers on Wednesday. Kadri, who has 20 points (10G / 10A) in 27 games this season, will skate with Joonas Donskoi and Andre Burakovsky at even strength and is expected to be back on the top power-play unit.

Kadri (foot) missed Monday’s practice but should play on Tuesday.

Kadri took a shot off of his foot on Saturday and is sore, but head coach Jared Bednar expects him to play vs. the Bruins on Tuesday. Kadri is still searching for his first point with the Avalanche, but has four shots and has averaged 15:55 TOI/gm through two games.

The NHL suspended Nazem Kadri for the rest of the first round for cross-checking Jake DeBrusk in Game 2.

This is a bizarre punishment that we have never seen before but Kadri has effectively been suspended for three-to-five games. William Nylander moved to centre in Game 3 with Kadri suspended and they will likely stick with the same lineup in Game 4 after winning 3-2 last night.

Kadri (undisclosed) will not play on Thursday.

Kadri was not at the Maple Leafs morning skate and head coach Mike Babcock said the centre would not be available vs. the Lightning. Babcock added that there may be a press release regarding Kadri’s injury, which suggests he could miss some time. This would obviously be a huge loss heading into the playoffs if that is the case but we update any further information as it is provided.

Kadri (upper-body) will be back in the Maple Leafs lineup on Tuesday.

Kadri has missed the last two games with an upper-body injury that he suffered last Thursday in Arizona. Kadri was back centring a line with Patrick Marleau and Leo Komarov on his wings. Kadri isn’t having the same offensive season he had a year ago, but has 13 goals and 10 assists in 38 games—putting him on-pace for 27 goals and 21 assists (48 points) in 80 games.

The Maple Leafs have signed Nazem Kadri to a six-year deal worth $27 million ($4.5M AAV).

Statistically Kadri didn’t have the greatest season but the Maple Leafs were impressed with his development and have inked him to a very reasonable six-year extension. Kadri will look to build off of his 2015-16 season where he had 17 goals and 28 assists (45 points) in 76 games. This raise should also help him pay for all those fines that seem to be adding up.
