Poor Nazem Kadri just can't escape the diving talk. What's that, Naz? You got a hat trick the other day? Had a four-point game a week ago? Well, that's nice and all, but remember when everyone was accusing you of diving? It just got worse.
#Leafs' Nazem Kadri fined $5,000 for diving. NHL announces he received two separate fines, one for $2,000 and another for $3,000.— Stephen Whyno (@SWhyno) April 1, 2016
Kadri fined total of $5000 for diving. Warned Feb 4 vs NJ. $2,000 for incident March 12 vs. Ott. $3000 for incident March 21 vs. Cal. #Leafs— Mike Zeisberger (@Zeisberger) April 1, 2016
This is the first time Kadri has been fined for embellishment in his career. And if it happens again, it won't be pleasant - neither for him, nor for his coach.
If Nazem Kadri gets caught diving by the NHL again this season, his next fine is $4,000 and #leafs coach Mike Babcock will be fined $2,000.— Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) April 1, 2016
We should note, however, that Kadri's playing style has served him well throughout his career. Things might have to change now, though. He's officially on the record.
