Kadri tallied an assist and fired two shots on goal while posting a plus-1 rating in Monday's 3-1 Game 6 win over Boston.

EDGE Analysis

Kadri has been effective since returning from suspension for Saturday's Game 5, notching two assists while registering six hits and four shots on goal in back-to-back victories. The 27-year-old pivot will hope to continue his strong two-way play and help his team secure a third consecutive win and advance to the second round in Wednesday's Game 7.

Kadri has fully served his three-game suspension and will be eligible to play Game 5 versus the Bruins on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Toronto's only win in these conference quarterfinals transpired in a game that Kadri sat out, but there's no doubt that the Buds miss him. Kadri produced 55 points (32 goals, 23 assists) -- with a career-high 19 points on the man advantage -- through 80 regular-season games. He'll have a chance to improve upon Toronto's lackluster scoring rate of 2.25 goals per game in the playoffs.

Kadri was suspended for three playoff games after boarding the Bruins' Tommy Wingels on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Kadri's hip collided with a defenseless Wingels' head in a hit that clearly deviated from normal hockey acts. As a result, a message was sent to Kadri and the league that these actions wont be tolerated, and the Maple Leafs will suffer as a result. Kadri tied a career high with 32 goals in 80 games this season, and he added 23 helpers on the way. It's unclear who will fill in for the next three games of the series.

Kadri will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Friday for boarding/charging Boston's Tommy Wingels during Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Bruins.

EDGE Analysis

Kadri delivered a malicious hit from behind while Wingels was on his knees alongside the boards in the third period of Thursday's contest. Wingels left the game due to an undisclosed injury and wasn't able to return, with could factor into the NHL Department of Player Safety's decision regarding a possible suspension. The Department of Player Safety will release their ruling ahead of Saturday's Game 2 in Boston.

Kadri scored the game winner Saturday in a 4-3 win over Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

He has really picked up the pace in March and has six goals (seven points) in nine games this month. Kadri is just one goal shy of the 30 mark this season. He's a solid activation down the stretch.

Kadri scored two goals, including one on the power play, during a 5-2 victory over the Penguins on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Seeing Kadri scoring in bunches has become the norm as of late, as in the last month, he has three games with multiple goals. The two scores Saturday brings him to 26 on the season, which puts him just six behind his career-high pace from 2016-17. The only thing owners might be able to complain about with Kadri is his lack of PIM. After averaging more than a penalty minute per game over the last two seasons, he has spent just 34 minutes in the box in 67 games during 2017-18.

Kadri scored twice in Saturday's 4-3 win over Boston.

EDGE Analysis

Both came on the power play. Kadri has 13 points in his last 10 games and is blossoming on a line with Mitch Marner. Make sure you have him active while these two are together. Marner makes Kadri better. Period.

Kadri scored three goals and added two assists in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Blue Jackets.

EDGE Analysis

It was a career night for the pivot, but it will likely be forgotten because of goalie Fredrick Andersen's massive 54-save night. Kadri has really responded to skating with Mitch Marner. He has 15 points, including seven goals, in his last 10 games. We can only imagine how good Kadri's production might have been if he hadn't been paired with Leo Komarov the first half of the season. He is a great keeper option, especially if the team keeps him with Marner as it heads into next season.

Kadri scored a goal and added an assist in Toronto's 6-3 win over Ottawa on Saturday night.

EDGE Analysis

Kadri has 13 points (four goals, nine assists) in his last 10 games and is playing inspired hockey with Mitch Marner and Patrick Marleau. Prior to that, he had just a single point in his previous 18 games. Kadri is finally a mandatory activation again, but he won't end up anywhere near his 32-goal, 61-point excellence in 2016-17.

Kadri scored a pair of goals, including one on the power play, in Thursday's win over the Stars.

EDGE Analysis

That's back-to-back games with a power-play goal for Kadri, who has netted six of his 17 tallies this season with the man advantage. He'd been going through a rough stretch of late, so hopefully these last two games are a sign of what's to come. His second-line role and 28 points through 49 games make him a serviceable fantasy option across a variety of formats.
