Leafs’ Nazem Kadri Suspended For Rest Of First Round Series

Published

on

Toronto Maple Leafs forward Nazem Kadri has been handed a suspension for up to 5 games for his cross check on Boston Bruins’ winger Jake Debrusk.

The league stated the following:

“This is not a hockey play. Instead, this is a player retaliating against an opponent by using his stick as a weapon to make forceful and direct head contact. While we understand that Kadri took offense to DeBrusk’s hit against Marleau, players are simply not permitted to flagrantly violate league playing rules because they feel that retribution is justified. It is also important to note that Kadri has an extensive disciplinary track record that must be considered when issuing supplemental discipline.”

Toronto will now be without their most physical players for the rest of the series.

The New York Islanders have placed Andrew Ladd on waivers, according to an official team announcement.

So we’ll get him down, he’ll leave today to go up to Belleville and play this weekend at Belleville and Laval.

There’s no timetable. His play and physical fitness will determine that.”

Ladd, who inked a seven-year, $38.5 million contract back in 2016, has not played in a game for the Islanders this season.
