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.

The NHL has suspended Nazem Kadri for four games.

Kadri was suspended for four games for an elbow to the head of Oilers forward Matt Fraser on Monday. The suspension will keep him out of the lineup until next Saturday vs. the Senators. With Peter Holland still out with a lower-body injury, the Leafs will likely recall a centre.

Kadri will be a healthy scratch for the next two games.

Kadri was scratched from Monday's game against the Islanders and he will also be a healthy scratch in tonight's game vs. Buffalo and Friday's game in Calgary. It was speculated that Kadri was scratched because he was late for a team meeting, but Leafs president Brendan Shanahan said "there's more to this [then being late for a meeting]."

Kadri will be a healthy scratch on Monday vs. New York.

Kadri was sent home on Sunday after showing up late for a team meeting. Kadri said he “slept in” which is why he missed the team meeting. He will take a seat tonight with Brandon Kozun drawing in for him. Peter Holland will centre the second line with Kadri in the press box.
