Less than 24 hours after stretching his legs at the NHL league offices, Nazem Kadri was leading the stretch at Toronto Maple Leafs practice.
Kadri led his teammates through a series of stretches Tuesday morning, despite being suspended for the remainder of the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs for his cross-check on Boston Bruins winger Jake DeBrusk. The star center was disciplined by the NHL Department of Player safety after an in-person hearing Monday afternoon.
That apparently hasn’t kept him off the ice.
Check out this video from the Leafs’ practice:
Make of that what you will.
(It’s really not a big deal.)
The Leafs, playing without Kadri, beat the Bruins on Monday to take a 2-1 lead in their best-of-seven playoff series. Game 4 is set for Wednesday night in Toronto.
