About Nazem Kadri
A standout in junior while playing for the London Knights of the OHL, Nazem Kadri's blend of skill and physicality had scouts drooling leading up to the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. He was selected 7th overall by the Toronto Maple Leafs and expectations were high that he would make a smooth transition from the junior level to the pros.
Though the transition was far from smooth Nazem Kadri is now finally coming into his own with the Maple Leafs. He had a stellar season during the lockout-shortened campaign of 2012-13, registering 18 goals and 44 points in just 48 games played. Though he is not quite on the same pace this season his 17 points in 24 games is not too shabby, and he has upped his physical game, registering 37 penalty minutes already.
Only 23 years of age, Nazem Kadri's best hockey is still ahead of him. If he continues to perform as he has fans can expect to see Nazem Kadri in a Toronto Maple Leafs jersey for many years to come.
