Nazem Kadri gets match penalty for hit on Mikael Granlund

Nazem Kadri might be hearing from Brendan Shanahan for two different hits in the same game.

Nazem Kadri had quite a game on Wednesday night.

After knocking Minnesota Wild starting goalie Niklas Backstrom out of the game in the first period (he was penalized for goalie interference), Kadri was ejected and given a match penalty for this hit on Wild forward Mikael Granlund midway through the third period.


Kadri finished the night with 14 penalty minutes (along with the interference and the match penalty, he was also called for hooking in the second period) and could be hearing from Brendan Shanahan for two different hits.
