Forward Nazem Kadri rejoins Maple Leafs

TORONTO (AP) - Nazem Kadri is back with the Toronto Maple Leafs after a stint in the American Hockey League.

The forward practiced with the team Wednesday.

Kadri had 22 points in 22 games with the Marlies and was named the AHL's top player in November.

He joins a Leafs team nursing several injuries. Forwards Colby Armstrong (concussion) and Philippe Dupuis (upper body) are the most recent players to be sidelined.

Toronto hosts Buffalo on Thursday and visits the Islanders on Friday.

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
