NHL announces cooperation with police, new security measures around Kadri and the Avs

One of the events that caused quite a stir this past weekend during the NHL playoffs was the violent contact between Nazem Kadri and goaltender Jordan Binnington (Blues), who was really dominant and unstoppable since the beginning of the NHL playoffs:

Following this contact, Binnington left the game, never came back and we just learned that he will have to leave for a long time. (and therefore, his series against the Avalanche is over)

There were many comments on the gesture, but some went way too far.



Yesterday, the Avalanche organization announced that they had contacted law enforcement:

"The Avalanche says local law enforcement is working with the team, investigating threats made against forward Nazem Kadri after Game 3 against the Blues." - Sportsnet

"The Avalanche organization is aware of the threats made against Nazem Kadri and is working with local law enforcement to investigate." - Peter Baugh

This all comes on the heels of the troubling revelations made by Akim Aliu:

"I spoke to Nazem Kadri. About his inadvertent collision with Binnington. Naz has been the subject of so many racist attacks and threats since last night that the police had to intervene. Racist attacks like this have no place in field hockey and should be investigated and reported." - Akim Aliu


See what the excellent whistleblower Darren Dreger (TSN) has posted:

Comments from Bill Daly and the NHL, on alleged threats to Nazem Kadri. "We always take threats to any of our players or other personnel very seriously. We are in contact with the St. Louis Police Department and they are currently using enhanced security procedures, both in the arena and at the (Avalanche) hotel."

So security will be tightened, starting now, around Kadri and the Avalanche. A very unfortunate situation and goes way too far.
