Nazem Kadri has been suspended for the remainder of the Toronto Maple Leafs’ first-round playoff series for his hit on Boston’s Jake DeBrusk during Game 2 on Saturday night.

The NHL department of player safety announced the punishment on Monday afternoon.

Kadri was tangled with the Bruins winger all game. They were penalized for roughing in the first period, and then Kadri left the game after a knee-to-knee hit from DeBrusk late in the second period.

Then in the third, Kadri was ejected after crosschecking DeBrusk.

The Toronto center has been suspended multiple times throughout his NHL career, which began in 2010. Last year he was suspended three game for his hit on Tommy Wingels.

The playoff series between the teams is tied at 1-1, with Game 3 being held in Toronto on Monday night.
