Is Nazem Kadri Persian?

I'm just curious because he looks more ethnic than the other Leafs, but that's not a bad thing at all. I like the way this kid plays, I remember reading in the papers years ago that he was a bust and couldn't make the team because he's not good enough...look at him now....I'm kida glad now that he will prove even more, now that Frattin is out, what he can do on his own and can make plays and score goals with anyone next to him. I like that the Leafs pure, natural skill on the team now with guys like Kessell, JVR, and now Kadri. Can't win with a bunch of average to decent players in this league. Burke saw that and addressed it.

Is this thread for real.....

"He looks more ethnic than the other Leafs", seriously?

His parents are Lebanese.

Don't take it the wrong way man, I was just curious. I know he's a Canadian boy from London but his backround was different and I wanted to know where.

I'll probably get modded for this, but whatever. Instead of looking like an idiot (that's not a bad thing at all), by bringing up something, then saying its not bad (I know youre a canadian boy probably from Toronto), but continuing, you could of gone to google.com, and then searched Nazem Kadri, and read up on it. You would of seen this.

Kadri is the fourth player of Lebanese descent to play in the NHL,

hmm, wonder where he's from?

Calling the brown kid Persian then saying he looks "more ethnic"
It is actually hilarious how ignorant this comes off. I am going to guess OP is American born.

Wait it gets better... He has an Israel location icon ..

That´s like saying all Canadians and Americans are English.

Thought he was born in Canada. That would make him..... Canadian.

Yakupov is Tatar. Very different from Russian which is funny considering all the stereotypes people were questioning around draft day.

Remarkable how people can't simply answer a question and move on. OP asked a question (albeit easily answered via Google), so just answer 'His family is of Lebanese descent'. Ta-da.

Closed.
