My favorite hit by a Leaf player so far this season. I always knew Nazem had a bit of an edge to his game. As the season progresses and his confidence grows we'll all see why Burkie was so high on him and drafted him in '09. So happy!
Great hit. I can't stand how guys turn (or attempt to in this case) their back when they're about to get hit close to the boards. If they would just stay face on and brace themselves it would significantly lower the chance of them getting hurt.
I really like how Kadri is becoming a multi-tool player. Through the roof hockey IQ, elite passing ability, elite hands, physical and an agitator. I really think if he continues to be brought along slowly, he'll eventually develop into our number one centre. The skill is already there, and he'll just keep getting stronger and better at faceoffs as he gets older.
