Video: Leafs’ Kadri ejected for illegal hit to head (Updated)

Nov 13, 2013, 10:09 PM EST

Could Toronto Maple Leafs forward Nazem Kadri be getting a phone call from the NHL head of discipline Brendan Shanahan?

On Wednesday, Kadri was tossed after getting assessed a match penalty in the third period for an illegal hit to the head of Minnesota Wild forward Mikael Granlund.

Granlund was shaken up on the hit, but finished the game, playing three shifts in overtime.

This wasn’t the first time tonight that Kadri ran afoul of the rules. In the first period, he ran Wild goalie Niklas Backstrom, causing him to leave the game.

The video shows that on the collision in the Wild crease, Kadri appeared to follow through with his right elbow. There may be two incidents for which he may be made to answer for.
