Nazem Kadri C TOR 1 Month

Kadri extended his current point streak to three games and four points (two goals, two assists) with a helper in Monday's loss to the Lightning.

He did go five-for-11 in the face-off dot and finished plus-1 on the night, so those are slight improvements from his last few outings. His value depends on your format. Use him if you can withstand a fluctuating plus-minus.

Kadri delivered his 11th goal of the season in Sunday's loss to the Panthers. He has three points, including two goals, in his last two games and eight points (four goals, four assists) in his last 10.

He was inefficient in the face-off circle on Sunday night, going four-of-13. His plus-minus has also been sketchy in the last five, save for one plus game (overall minus-5 in those five). His game has been improving, but he struggles when the Leafs do. They're 1-4 in those last five and need to snap the funk to provide value for fantasy owners who own mid-level players like Kadri.

Kadri netted the game winner in the first minute of Tuesday's game in Dallas. He also picked up an assist and finished plus-3.

He sprung James Van Riemsdyk on a breakaway in the second and the big winger made no mistake. Kadri has seven points, including three goals, in his last nine outings and 13 in his last 14. He's also playing much better defensive hockey than he did to start the season, but his plus-minus still tends to swing game to game. He's a solid activation, though -- the breakout appears to be finally in place.

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.
