He was also named  the tournament’s MVP after totaling eight goals and 12 assists in 10 games, the first USA player ever to earn the honor. He has also competed with Team USA at the 2010 and 2014 Winter Olympics.

 NHL Suspends Leafs’ Kadri For Rest Of 1st Round – After two serious incidents in consecutive playoff series against the Boston Bruins, the NHL’s Department of Player Safety has decided it doesn’t want Toronto Maple Leafs forward Nazem Kadri facing them again this postseason. The NHL suspended Kadri for the remainder of the first-round series between Toronto and Boston after his cross-check to the face of Bruins winger Jake DeBrusk in Game 2 on Saturday. That means a maximum five-game ban for Kadri. Game 3 of the series is Monday night, with the Bruins and Leafs tied at 1-all. The latest incident occurred at 14:01 of the third period Saturday. DeBrusk delivered a hard hit on Toronto’s Patrick Marleau, crushing him against the stanchion at the players’ bench. As DeBrusk stood near the boards, Kadri skated over to avenge his teammate, and perhaps gain a measure of revenge for himself for a questionable DeBrusk hit earlier in the game, and cross-checked him high with his stick, knocking DeBrusk to the ice. Kadri was assessed a major penalty and game misconduct for cross-checking. DeBrusk didn’t return to the game but was due to play in Game 3 for the Bruins.
