Kadri's eighth goal of the season stood as the game winner Saturday night in a 5-3 victory over Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

The snipe snapped an eight-game goal drought. Kadri has suffered the most from William Nylander's contract holdout. Kadri can't drive offense -- he needs a skilled offensive guy beside him to generate points. And those guys moved up into the top six, leaving Kadri without the best help. But the lines will soon be readjusted and Kadri should be in line for a boost in production. His value should be on the rise.

Kadri scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 6-1 win over the Devils.

EDGE Analysis

He also chipped in two shots, a hit and a plus-1 rating. Kadri has hit the scoresheet in six of his last seven games, giving him five goals and 11 points through 16 games on the season, and he should continue to fill a spot in the Leafs' top six while Auston Matthews (shoulder) is sidelined.

Kadri scored a goal in Saturday's 3-2 victory over Winnipeg.

EDGE Analysis

After going nine games without a goal, Kadri has now delivered in back-to-back games. And his scoring opportunities should increase going forward with Auston Matthews out with a shoulder injury. Kadri will slide up the lineup, so make sure you have him active.

Kadri scored a goal and recorded a team-high six shots on goal Wednesday in a 4-2 win over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Kadri was buzzing all game and appeared determined to rid himself of the goose egg in the goal column. His efforts were rewarded Wednesday and the 28-year-old center wound up tallying the game-winning goal. Next up for Kadri and the Maple Leafs is a home rematch with Winnipeg.

Kadri has no goals and four assists in his first nine games this season.

EDGE Analysis

The William Nylander contract impasse is hurting Kadri the most. Kadri's wingers are Par Lindholm and Connor Brown, rather than Brown and Kasperi Kapanen, who is toiling on the top line with Auston Mathews. Kadri isn't panicking, but he does need to adjust. And that hasn't come yet. He is seeing power-play time, but it may soon be time to re-adjust your expectations for offence from Kadri.

Kadri recorded two power-play assists in Thursday's 5-3 road win over the Red Wings.

EDGE Analysis

With all-world pivot John Tavares joining force with third-year scoring sensation Auston Matthews on the power play, it's easy to overlook a guy like Kadri, especially in DFS contests. However, let's not forget that the Buds' seventh overall draft pick from 2009 produced 116 points (64 goals, 52 assists) over the last two seasons combined.

Kadri set up two goals in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Canadiens.

EDGE Analysis

Nazzy has truly matured into one of the league's best two-way players. He benefited from playing with Auston Matthews on the power play and John Tavares at even strength on Wednesday. That might change when William Nylander finally hits the ice, but for now, Kadri could see a bump in production.

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.
