TORONTO (AP) The Latest on Toronto center Nazem Kadri (all times local):

6:05 p.m.

The NHL has suspended Toronto Maple Leafs forward Nazem Kadri for the rest of the first round for cross-checking Boston Bruins winger Jake DeBrusk in the head.

The league announced the decision Monday not long before the two teams played Game 3 of their series in Toronto. The best-of-seven series is tied 1-1.

Kadri hit DeBrusk in the third period of Boston's 4-1 victory. The NHL had the option to suspend him for more than five games.

Kadri was banned three games for boarding in the opener of last year's series with the Bruins and has had seven previous hearings with the NHL since 2013. All four of his previous suspensions involved contact with an opponent's head.

Winger William Nylander will take Nazem Kadri's place at center on Toronto's third line when the Maple Leafs host the Boston Bruins in Game 3 of their first-round series Monday night.

Kadri was facing an in-person hearing with the NHL's department of player safety on Monday in New York after his cross-check to the head of Bruins winger Jake DeBrusk in the third period of Boston's 4-1 victory that tied the series 1-1. The NHL has the option to suspend him for more than five games.
