Nazem Kadri C TOR 4 Days

Kadri scored a goal in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Ducks. He now has a point in each of his last three games and 11 points (four goals, seven assists) in his last 10 games.

His game in both ends of the ice has taken a big leap in the last few weeks. Maybe he's almost as good as he thinks he is. You might as well reap the rewards.

Kadri scored an empty-net goal in Toronto's 4-1 win over Detroit. He has nine points in his last eight games.

Honestly, we're most impressed with the fact he was on the ice to protect a lead in the dying moments -- it wasn't that long ago that something like that would have never happened. He's buying into the system and still producing. Look out.

Kadri delivered two assists in Tuesday's win over the Flames.

Don't look now, but Kadri has eight points in his last six games and 10 in his last 10. He's been working on his face-off technique and while he'll never be Patrice Bergeron or Tyler Bozak, he's showing improvement there, too. Check your wire -- he was jettisoned by any frustrated owners earlier this year. You can do worse at this point.

Kadri notched a shorthanded goal in Thursday's loss to New Jersey. He has at least a point in each of his last four games.

He has two goals and four assists in those four games. He has quietly started to pick up the pieces of a slow start and may actually be growing his game. We're not prepared to believe that just yet, but he sure looks better than in the past. Take advantage of this little run.

Kadri scored a goal and added two assists, one of which came on the power play, in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Stars.

It looks like it took putting him on the point to get him his first point on the PP. After a sluggish -- no, molasses-like -- start, Kadri has pieced together a three-game, five-point streak that includes a plus-five rating. Check your wire -- a lot of people will be regretting having dropped him a week or so ago.

Kadri has not registered a single point with the man advantage this season and was removed from the power play entirely against Pittsburgh on Wednesday night.

He has all five of his goals and 10 even-strength points at even strength. Yet, he owns the second-best possession mark on the Leafs and has improved his own zone play. But he still struggles with consistency. He upped the ante Wednesday and played with more emotion; he'll need to do that a lot more to regain any fantasy value.

Kadri scored a goal and finished plus-1 in Tuesday's 9-2 loss to Nashville. He played more than 17 minutes.

It's somewhat remarkable that he finished plus-1 in such an embarrassing loss, but there are night when he actually plays a complete game. Too bad it comes when the rest of the team looks horrendous. He has a point in each of his last two; fingers crossed this is the start of something beautiful.

Kadri picked up an assist in Saturday' s loss to Buffalo. He has just eight points in 18 games this season.

The Leafs started him on the top line Saturday, but that's not a vote of confidence. Instead, they did it to allow the emerging Peter Holland to center the second line to push Kadri. Nazzy has to pick his game in a big way to keep a grip on that second-line gig. And to keep him on your fantasy roster.

Kadri picked up two assists Saturday in a win over the Rangers. He has five points, including two goals, in his last five games.

We're hoping he can keep up some of that scoring pace, but it seems as though he'll need to stick with Phil Kessel if that's to come to pass -- his latest offence has come with Kessel on the top line. This bears watching as it seems Kessel is the only teammate who meshes with Kadri.

Kadri tapped home a pass late in the first period of Saturday's win over Chicago.

He now has at least a goal in each of his last two games. His inflated sense of self will likely grate you, but won't necessarily lower his fantasy value. And he seems to like skating on a line with Phil Kessel, so take advantage of that opportunity while it lasts.
