Leafs’ Nazem Kadri suspended for rest of Bruins series

Leafs’ Nazem Kadri suspended for rest of Bruins series Nazem Kadri’s season may be over, as may be his career with the Maple Leafs. Kadri was suspended for the rest of the opening round of the playoffs by the NHL’s department of player safety on Monday for his cross-check to the head of Boston’s Jake DeBrusk in Game 2 of the Toronto-Boston Stanley Cup playoff series. If the Leafs don’t survive the first round, Kadri will have played his last game of the season. And if the Leafs braintrust is looking to find some salary-cap space over the summer to re-sign Mitch Marner, Andreas Johnsson and Kasperi Kapanen, Kadri’s cap hit of $4.5 million U.S. until the end of the 2021-22 season might be the place they start.

Nazem Samir "Naz" Kadri (born October 6, 1990) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player. He currently plays centre for the Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Toronto Maple Leafs centre Nazem Kadri has been suspended three games by the NHL for his hit on Boston Bruins forward Tommy Wingels in Game 1 of their first - round playoff series. Kadri was assessed a five-minute major for charging and a game misconduct at 8:18 of the third period

NEW YORK — The Toronto Maple Leafs will have to do without Nazem Kadri for the rest of their first-round playoff series with the Boston Bruins.

The centre has been suspended for the rest of the series by the NHL following his cross-check to the head of Boston winger Jake DeBrusk in the third period of the Bruins' 4-1 victory in Game 2 on Saturday.

Kadri was offered an in-person hearing by the NHL, meaning the league had the option to suspend him for more than five games.

He laid the vicious cross-check after DeBrusk hit Patrick Marleau into the curved glass at the end of the bench.

It's the fifth suspension of Kadri's career.

The series is tied 1-1 with Game 3 going tonight at Scotiabank Arena.
