Avalanche's Nazem Kadri: Heading to Avalanche
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kadri was traded to Colorado along with Calle Rosen and a 2020 third-round pick in exchange for Tyson Barrie, Alex Kerfoot, and a 2020 sixth-round pick Monday, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.

Kadri spent the first 10 years of his NHL career with Toronto, racking up 357 points in 561 career games. Last season was a bit of a letdown; after back-to-back 30-goal seasons, he pocketed just 16 goals and 44 points during the 2018-19 campaign. The 28-year-old will likely center Colorado's second line and see time on the team's second power-play unit.

Maple Leafs' Nazem Kadri: Team needs him
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kadri regrets the Game 2 cross-check on Boston's Jake DeBrusk that landed him a suspension for the remainder of the first round, reports TSN.ca.

"Of course I regret it," Kadri said Thursday at the locker clean out. "It's not my intent to hurt people. Sometimes I think with my heart and not with my head. That can't happen again." His general manager Kyle Dubas told media at the earlier year-end availability that "[Kadri] likes to defend his teammates and he plays hard, but we need him to be available." More interesting is the fact that Kadri was not allowed on the road trips for Games 5 and 7, which likely means his coach saw him as a distraction he just didn't want near the team. Kadri's future with the Leafs will be a discussion all the way to training camp if he's not traded before then.

Maple Leafs' Nazem Kadri: Season comes to end
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kadri (suspension) saw his team drop Game 7 on Tuesday, which means his season ends with the center watching from the press box.

The silver lining for Kadri, if you want to see it, is that the league didn't suspend him a set number of games, which means his ban won't linger into 2019-20. In 73 regular-season contests, the Ontario native notched 16 goals and 28 assists for his fourth straight 40-plus point campaign and should be capable of doing so again next year.

Maple Leafs' Nazem Kadri: Suspended rest of first round
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kadri has been suspended for the remainder of the first round for his cross-check to the head of Bruins forward Jake DeBrusk in Game 2.

Kadri is no stranger to "crossing the line", having been suspended four times before this most recent incident. The decision from the league means he'll sit for a maximum of five games, which is undeniably a big blow to Toronto's forward group. Needing to fill the void left by Kadri's absence, Mike Babcock figures to deploy either William Nylander or Patrick Marleau at center for the rest of the first round.

Maple Leafs' Nazem Kadri: Likely facing hefty suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kadri was offered an in-person hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety in response to his actions during Saturday's loss to the Bruins.

In a game that featured plenty of questionable hits, Kadri's egregious cross-check to Jake DeBrusk's head had a clear intent to injure. Kadri is a repeat offender and was suspended three games during last year's playoffs for boarding Boston's Tommy Wingels. An in-person hearing gives the NHL DOPS an opportunity to suspend Kadri six or more games, so it seems likely he'll be done for the rest of this series.

Maple Leafs' Nazem Kadri: May face supplemental discipline
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kadri (knee) was ejected in the third period Saturday for a crosscheck to the head of a Bruins player.

He had been injured late in the second, but returned to notch a goal. Then, Kadri pulled his Sideshow Bob routine and decided to avenge a Jake DeBrusk hit on Patrick Marleau. He received a match penalty and could face supplemental discipline. After all, Kadri has a reputation for these antics -- he was suspended for three games last postseason for an ugly boarding incident. He's a good player if he can stay on the right side of the edge. But Kadri struggles with that.

Maple Leafs' Nazem Kadri: Back for final frame
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kadri (knee) returned in the third period of Saturday's game versus the Bruins, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.

Kadri left in the second period after a knee-on-knee collision with Jake DeBrusk, but the intermission gave him enough time to shake off the pain. He'll return to his role as third-line center.

Maple Leafs' Nazem Kadri: Leaves with possible knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kadri left Saturday's game against Boston late in the second period with a possible left knee injury.

There was no penalty called, but there was definite knee-on-knee contact from Jake DeBrusk. Kadri was able to skate off the ice, but had been clutching his leg.

Maple Leafs' Nazem Kadri: Dazzles with seeing-eye pass
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kadri picked up an assist in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Bruins for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals.

It was a beautiful pass from deep in the Leafs' zone that sprung William Nylander on a breakaway. Kadri feathered it past at least three Bruins and Willie found twine. Last postseason, Kadri was forced to play higher in the lineup and was at times overwhelmed by the responsibility. Now, he's the third-line pivot and wins the talent war against his matchup everytime. Kadri could be a source of steady fantasy production as the Buds attempt to march toward Lord Stanley.

Maple Leafs' Nazem Kadri: Gearing up Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kadri (undisclosed) will play in Saturday's game versus the Canadiens, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports.

Kadri sat out last game due to an undisclosed condition, but he's back in the lineup for the season finale. He's had a difficult season, as his 16 goals represent a major regression from the 32 tallies he put up in each of the previous two seasons. Expect him to center the third line as usual along with power-play duties.

Maple Leafs' Nazem Kadri: Aiming to play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kadri (undisclosed) hopes to rejoin the lineup for the regular-season finale Saturday against the Canadiens, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports.

After missing Thursday's game against Tampa Bay, Kadri hopes to get a tune-up game in before the postseason begins next week. He will fall well short of the 61 and 55 points tallied in the past two campaigns, but a pair of points Saturday would give him a respectable 45. At the very least, Kadri's ended the season strong with four points in his last five games and will look to add to that total versus the Canadiens if cleared to play.

Maple Leafs' Nazem Kadri: Will not face Montreal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kadri (undisclosed) will not play in Saturday's matchup with Montreal, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports.

Kadri will have missed Toronto's last two games of the regular season by the time the puck drops Saturday. With the third seed all locked up, the team likely just wants to keep the forward ready for Game 1 against Boston. In Kadri's absence, Trevor Moore and Frederik Gauthier would likely see more time.

Maple Leafs' Nazem Kadri: Not playing Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Mike Babcock said Thursday that Kadri (undisclosed) won't be available for Thursday's tilt against Tampa Bay, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports.

This news comes as a surprise due to the fact that Kadri hasn't missed any games recently. With the third seed in the Atlantic Division locked up, however, rest could be the ultimate factor for sitting Kadri. In his stead, Trevor Moore and Frederik Gauthier should draw into the lineup.

Maple Leafs' Nazem Kadri: Produces in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kadri (concussion) returned Saturday and delivered a power-play assist in 12:50 of ice time in a 3-2 win over Edmonton.

He played 2:23 on the power play -- that was a team-high mark shared with Auston Matthews and Morgan Rielly. Get him back in your lineup.

Maple Leafs' Nazem Kadri: Back in tow
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kadri (concussion) will return Saturday versus the Oilers, Derek Van Diest of NHL.com reports.

Look for Kadri to slot in on the third line with Patrick Marleau and William Nylander as his flankers. We can also expect Kadri to return to a power play that ranks eighth in the league at 22.4 percent between the two groupings, as he continues to fly under the radar with the likes of John Tavares and Auston Matthews drawing so much attention in the top six.

Maple Leafs' Nazem Kadri: Remains sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kadri (concussion) won't play Wednesday against Vancouver, Paul Hendrick of the Maple Leafs' official site reports.

Kadri will miss an eighth consecutive contest Wednesday and remains without a clear-cut timetable for his return to game action. His next opportunity to rejoin the lineup will arrive Saturday against the Oilers, but he should probably be considered iffy at best for that match at this point.

Maple Leafs' Nazem Kadri: No go Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kadri (concussion) will miss Monday's game in Calgary, Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun reports.

After Monday's game, Kadri's latest concussion will have robbed him of seven appearances, and it wouldn't be surprising if he missed all three games of Toronto's western road swing, though nothing beyond Calgary has been confirmed. The Leafs travel to Vancouver to play the Canucks on Wednesday before returning to Alberta to take on Edmonton on Saturday. Kadri has not played since Feb. 19.

Maple Leafs' Nazem Kadri: Another absence expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kadri (concussion) participated in morning skate, but he doesn't appear fit to play in Saturday's game against the Sabres, Jonas Siegel of The Athletic reports.

Barring a quick turnaround, fantasy owners will need to continue seeking alternatives to Kadri in daily contests. He has missed five consecutive games but remains off injured reserve, partially due to the 23-man roster limit being lifted. Kadri's next opportunity to suit up will arrive Monday for a road game against the Flames.

Maple Leafs' Nazem Kadri: Skates for first time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kadri (concussion) took the ice Tuesday ahead of practice, Paul Hendrick of the Maple Leafs' official site reports.

The fact that Kadri is still unable to join his teammates on the ice probably means he is more week-to-week at this point than day-to-day, though no official timeline has been provided by the team. In the meantime, William Nylander figures to continue featuring as a third-line center, while Andreas Johnson gets bumped up to a second-line role with Auston Matthews.

February 25, 2019 01:24 PM
Maple Leafs' Nazem Kadri: Remains sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kadri (concussion) won't play Monday against the Sabres, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports.

Kadri has yet to resume skating since suffering a concussion Tuesday against St. Louis, so at this point there's no telling when he might be ready to return to game action. William Nylander will continue to fill in on the Maple Leafs' third line uintil Kadri is cleared to play.
