Avalanche’s Nazem Kadri Facing Suspension After KOing Blues Defenseman Justin Faulk With a Brutal Shot to the Head

SJ - May 20, 2021

The Avalanche's Nazem Kadri will probably be watching the rest of the playoff series against the Blues from home.  He was ejected during Colorado's 6-3 Game 2 win over the Blues for a dirty hit.

Kadri knocked out St. Louis defenseman Justin Faulk with a brutal blindside hit to the head.

Given Kadri's history of dirty hits and multiple suspensions he's likely going to be sidelined for a few games.  I wouldn't be surprised if he's suspended for the rest of this series.

Kadri's got an ass kicking coming his way the next time he takes the ice against the Blues.
