Nazem Kadri won’t be suspended for hit on Daniel Sedin

TORONTO – Nazem Kadri won’t receive a suspension for his hit on Daniel Sedinin Saturday’s Leafs-Canucks game, Sportsnet has learned.

The NHL’s department of player safety reviewed the play and determined that Sedin’s shoulder, rather than his head, was the principal point of contact.

Kadri was assessed a charging major at 6:42 of the third period after swooping into the defensive zone and levelling Sedin from the blindside just as he scored a goal. The collision knocked the helmet off the veteran Canucks forward, who smacked his head as he fell to the ice.

Sedin was put through the concussion protocol by trainers and returned to the game.

 

Tempers then flared up repeatedly on a night where 171 minutes in penalties were assessed, including game misconducts to both starting goalies: Ryan Miller and Frederik Andersen.

Toronto won 6-3.

Kadri has been one of the Leafs most effective players this season while being deployed in a shutdown role. He has six goals and nine point in 12 games.

The 26-year-old has been suspended three times by the department of player safety and would have been considered a repeat offender if it elected to do so again. He has forfeited nearly $400,000 in salary during his NHL career for the suspensions, two diving fines and a fine for making a throat-slash gesture at an opponent.

Friggin ridiculous. It was a dangerous hit bottom line, Kadri is a repeat offender.

 

 

I am in full support of any dirty plays we make next game. Hope Tryamkin crushes Marner

The NHL is a bush league through and through. inconsistent and biased. You could tell from Babcock's quote after the game nothing would happen to Kadri.

 

  "It's reviewable but we have good people at the League & they'll look after that. It won't be a problem." - Mike Babcock

Someone needs to make a montage of all the questionable hits on the Sedins and the suspensions they received for each(or lack there of). The NHL is so hopelessly bias against the Canucks this happens again and again.

It HAPPENED TO A CANUCK, why would there be a suspension?     OMG,  I hate the NHL - LOSERS, LOSERS, LOSERS. . .    If a Canuck had done what that jerk did the Canuck would have been given a huge suspension.     I am so mad. . .

And juxtapose them with some of the things that the Canucks got suspended for.

How is this different?  Jake got a suspension for a blindside hit.

 

 

 

Both hits here were blindside.
