Kadri's goal streak now stands at three after he notched his 16th on the power play in Saturday's 5-3 loss to Montreal.

EDGE Analysis

Nazzy has four points (three goals, one assist) in his last three games, all of which have come with the man advantage, and is tracking toward his first 30-plus goal campaign. That's impressive, considering Kadri's best previous total is 20 goals (50 points) in 2013-14.

Kadri scored a goal and added an assist -- both on the power play -- during Friday's win over New Jersey.

EDGE Analysis

Kadri connected with Tyler Bozak and James van Riemsdyk on both tallies, which bodes well for that new-look power-play unit going forward. The 26-year-old center is up to a solid 15 goals, 24 points, 119 shots and 61 PIM through 38 games, and he's making a difference in the real and virtual game. While Kadri isn't a universal fantasy own and you should expect some offensive peaks and valleys, his cross-category production moves the needle in most settings.

Kadri scored the power-play overtime winner, and attempted six shots in Thursday's 3-2 win over Tampa Bay.

EDGE Analysis

Kadri has scored three times in his past five games after posting just one point in his previous eight. The veteran center has already lit the lamp 13 times through 35 games, and is on pace to shatter his 2013-14 career high of 20 goals. He finished with a minus-1 rating in this one despite the strong performance, and is in the negatives for the fourth consecutive season at minus-2.

Kadri scored a pair of goals -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's 6-0 bashing of the Avalanche.

EDGE Analysis

Kadri had just snapped an eight-game goal drought in his last tilt, and apparently he's decided this whole goal-scoring thing is for him after all. With 13 pucks having found their way off Kadri's stick and past opposing netminders, he's on pace to blow by his career high of 20 goals, set back in 2013-14.

Kadri scored a third-period goal during a loss to Anaheim on Monday to snap an eight-game goalless streak.

EDGE Analysis

Consistently matching up against the opposition's top players isn't the recipe for fantasy success, and Kadri has just one goal and one assist through his past nine games. With 11 goals, 19 points, 94 shots and 55 PIM for the year, Kadri is still providing solid fantasy results. Just note that his ceiling is limited because of his checking role.

Kadri (illness) will be active for Wednesday's game against the Wild, Mark Masters of TSN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kadri missed Tuesday's practice due to the ailment but it appears it wasn't all that serious as he won't miss a single game as a result. The 26-year-old center is averaging his lowest minutes (15:51) since the 2010-11 season but he's producing at a near-point per game pace -- 17 in his last 24 contests.

Kadri is under the weather and sat out Tuesday's practice, David Alter of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite the illness, Kadri could be ready to go for Wednesday's matchup with Minnesota, but owners will want to check back to confirm prior to puck drop. If the center is out, look for William Nylander to see the biggest uptick in minutes with a recall from the minors in the offing.

Kadri lit the lamp Saturday in a 4-2 home win over the Capitals.

EDGE Analysis

Kadri's ninth tally of the season dropped jaws, as he picked up a loose puck near center ice, stormed past three defenders, and then dangled around Braden Holtby for a five-hole deposit. He's been unstoppable of late, averaging a point per game over the last five.

Kadri set up two goals Thursday in Toronto's 6-1 win over Florida.

EDGE Analysis

Nazzy has 13 points in 17 games; eight (five goals, three assists) have come in the last 10 games. He's also sitting with a somewhat remarkable 43 PIM on the season. Kadri has always played with an edge, but he's on track for 60 points and more than 150 PIM. That's the definition of valuable in fantasy. Wow.

Kadri recorded a goal and an assist Friday, helping his team to a 6-3 win over the Flyers.

EDGE Analysis

It would've been extra sweet if Kadri had been involved on any of Toronto's three special-teams tallies, but then again, it's not like he's been a slouch in that area as four of his 11 points this season have taken place with the man advantage. The Leafs are chock full of phenoms -- Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner, William Nylander, etc. -- making it easy to forget that Kadri is only 26 years old and arguably in the thick of his prime. Keep that in mind as you sort through fantasy options in both daily and season-long formats.
