Avalanche’s Kadri exits with injury after fall

Colorado Avalanche forward Nazem Kadri left Sunday’s 3-2 victory over the Minnesota Wild with an injury after an awkward fall backward during an offensive zone faceoff in the second period.

Kadri, who appeared to twist his left leg as he back-passed the puck after the faceoff, returned to the ice for the third period and played one shift before returning to the locker room. The Avalanche did not disclose the nature of the injury.

Kadri, 29, had an assist in the win, taking 14 shifts with 10:06 on the ice. He has been a key cog in the Avalanche’s stellar season, with 19 goals and 35 points in his first season in Colorado.

Kadri played parts of 10 seasons with the Maple Leafs before signing with Colorado in the offseason.

The Avalanche are in second place in the Central Division and have won four in a row.
