Nazem Kadri leaves Arizona game after elbow to neck

New, comments

The exact nature of the injury is unknown.

NHL: Toronto Maple Leafs at Minnesota Wild Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

In the first period of a wild game versus the Arizona Coyotes, Nazem Kadri was elbowed in the neck (or possibly the shoulder or head, it’s hard to tell) by Lawson Crouse. He played very little of the rest of that period, not taking a shift after approximately the 14 minute mark, but he stayed on the bench and showed signs of something wrong.

He did not return after the second intermission.

As noted, there was no penalty on the play.

The Leafs travel to Colorado tonight and play tomorrow against the Avalanche.
