Nazem Kadri doesn't mind that the spotlight in Toronto will be focused on the team's top prospects.
"I don't mind flying under the radar sometimes," Kadri said. "But at the same time, guys are expected to do a lot — maybe a little more this year than last year. But I think those guys know who they are and they're ready to take responsibility and take action."

The average annual value of his new deal is $4.5 million. Kadri finished as Toronto's leading scorer in 2015-16 with 45 points in 76 games. Coach Mike Babcock displayed plenty of faith in him during the regular season, while placing him against the top lines of the opposition.

Nazem Kadri has been suspended for four games for cross-checking Detroit's Luke Glendening.

Nazem Kadri will have a hearing with NHL’s department of player safety for his cross-check on Detroit forward Luke Glendening.

The incident occurred in the middle of the second period Saturday night. Kadri and Glendening were battling. Kadri eventually took a shot from Glendening and Kadri went back at him with a high cross-check. The Maple Leafs center has 17 goals and 45 points.

Nazem Kadri scored three goals in a 5-2 win over Florida on Tuesday.

His first two goals came on the powerplay. Babcock spoke before the contest on how he liked the look of Kadri and Bozak on the powerplay and it paid dividends tonight against Florida.

Nazem Kadri is trying to learn how to shoot more deceptively.

Kadri has just 14 goals through his 243 shots on net for a remarkably low 5.8 shooting percentage, making his the second least effective shooter among those with at least 200 pucks on net. In essence, Coach Mike Babcock is encouraging the 25-year-old to shoot more snappers, from more angles, and regardless of which foot is on the ice, or if both are planted. In Kadri's words it's, "so I don't have to really think about it much when I do it in a game." Makes sense. One imagines that when the lessons truly sink in, he'll become the scorer projected for him way back as the seventh overall pick in 2009.

Mike Babcock wouldn't mind seeing referees give Nazem Kadri a call every once in a while.

Bruins forward David Krejci delivered a questionable hit on Kadri in the third period, but no penalty call was made. "About four games ago … they decided that you can’t call a penalty on Naz," Babcock said. "I’m not blaming anybody for anything … the memo must be out they are not allowed to call a penalty on him. It’s got to be overwith now. Let’s get on with it. When there is a penalty, call a penalty."
