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

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
