Leafs’ Nazem Kadri Thinks Suspension ‘definitely a little harsh’

Toronto Maple Leafs center Nazem Kadri agrees with his suspension for a rather dangerous hit-from-behind he laid on Boston Bruins’ Tommy Wingels, but thinks it’s a bit excessive.

“Was it worthy of a suspension? I definitely think so. But I think the three games was definitely a little harsh,” Kadri said of the league’s ruling, according to TSN’s Kristen Shilton.

“I was disappointed; I wasn’t expecting (three games), that’s for sure,” he added. “That particular play, I felt a liberty had been taken on Mitch (Marner). I’m always going to stand up for my teammates, stand up for myself; that part isn’t going to change.”

Judge for yourself, as the video below shows the hit.
