Nazem Kadri scored his first goal in seven games during Saturday's overtime win over Winnipeg.

The 24-year-old does have four points in his last three games, but going seven games without a goal is inexcusable for someone who plays as many minutes as Kadri does. The Leafs forward has 15 goals and 34 points in 58 games this season. He averages just over 17:30 for the Leafs this season.

Nazem Kadri recorded a pair of assists in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Florida.

He had a hand in both of Toronto's power-play goals in the contest. Kadri has one goal in his last 10 games, but he does have four helpers in his past five outings.

Nazem Kadri isn't letting his contract situation distract him.

"I'm going to worry about playing, doing what I can on the ice," said Kadri, who can become a restricted free agent this summer. "That other stuff is between management and my agent. I don't really involve myself with too much of that. I don't know numbers or years. I told my agent to deal with management." Kadri had a goal on six shots in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to Nashville. He has 28 points in 50 games this season.
Feb 4 - 11:28 AM

Nazem Kadri and the Maple Leafs have reportedly started talks on a contract.

According to TSN's Darren Dreger, the range of the money has been discussed, but not the term. There also hasn't been an offer made yet. Kadri can become a restricted free agent at the end of the year, but the Leafs don't appear to be in a rush to get something done right now. Kadri has 13 goals, including two in his past two matches, and 27 points in 46 games.

Nazem Kadri scored on a power play late in the third period to give the Toronto Maple Leafs' their only goal in a 4-1 loss Monday night to the visiting Carolina Hurricanes.

It was the center's first goal in nine games and Toronto's first from a forward in five games. Kadri scored at 14:49 of the third period when he snapped a high shot from the faceoff circle past Carolina goalie Anton Khudobin for his 12th goal.

Nazem Kadri will center Richard Panik and James van Riemsdyk on their second line Friday night against Columbus.

"I think he [Kadri] can find you anywhere," Panik said. "I've got to be prepared for the pass from anywhere. I'm going to try to shoot the puck and try to make some scoring chances for him." JVR and Kadri rank second and fourth respectively in team scoring, while Panik has seven goals himself since being picked up from Tampa. Could be interesting.

Nazem Kadri will return to action on Wednesday night against the Washington Capitals, and he'll center the first line.

Kadri is Toronto's fifth leading scorer with 24 points in 38 games, will line up between Phil Kessel and Daniel Winnik. Kadri has four points in nine career games against the Caps, while Kessel has 20 points in 28 games.

Nazem Kadri (lower body) skated with Phil Kessel and Daniel Winnik during Wednesday's game-day session.

Toronto coach Peter Horachek is hopeful that Kadri will play against Washington and it appears as though he's probable to return after missing two games with a lower-body injury.
Jan 7 - 3:35 PM

Nazem Kadri is expected to miss seven to ten days with a lower body injury.

The type and extent is not yet known, but it doesn't sound bad. Kadri ranks fourth on the team in goals (11) and points (24), 21 of which have come at even strength.

Kadri ranks fourth on the team in goals (11) and points (24), 21 of which have come at even strength.

Although they have played together for only one game, the line of Nzaem Kadri, James vanRiemsdyk and Mike Santorelli has certainly impressed Toronto coach Randy Carlyle.

The unit was extremely effective in Tuesday's 4-0 win over Dallas. :It seems that there is some form of cohesiveness with Kadri and JVR," Carlyle. "Maybe the glue is Santorelli. We've moved him all over the place this year and every line that he has been on has been able to be accountable." The Leafs' top unit of Phil Kessel, Joffrey Lupul and Tyler Bozak will hopefully be able to follow the Kadri line's success. If for some reason Santorelli is still available in your fantasy league, we would pick him up as a reserve forward.

Nazem Kadri notched a goal and an assist in Toronto's 4-0 blanking of Dallas on Tuesday.

Kadri also sent James van Riemsdyk in for a breakaway goal in the second stanza. After a sluggish start to the year, Kadri has 10 goals and 22 points in 35 games.

Nazem Kadri has four goals and 11 points in his last 11 games.

He had just nine points in his first 21 games of the 2014-15 campaign. Kadri has been matched up against the best players on the opposition of late and he's been able to rise to the challenge. He's formed a successful trio with newcomers Daniel Winnik and Mike Santorelli.
