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 don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
