The NHL Department of Player Safety suspended Toronto Maple Leafs forward Nazem Kadri for three games for his hit on Boston Bruins forward Tommy Wingels in the third period of the Bruins’ 5-1 win in Game 1 Thursday.
Here is part of why the DPS made this decision:
“Kadri sees Wingels has fallen, and with significant time to adjust his course or minimize the force, instead drives recklessly into the defenseless Wingels, causing his head to dangerously impact the boards.”
Wingels was not on the ice for Bruins practice and was to be further evaluated on Friday according to Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy.
