Maple Leafs and Kadri Agree to Two Year Deal

The Toronto Maple Leafs have agreed to a two-year deal with young forward Nazem Kadri, according to NHL.com.  The 22-year-old center was a restricted free agent heading into training camp for the 2013-14 season, before agreeing to the deal worth just under $6 million, per Nick Kypreos of Sportsnet.  
 Kadri finished up a contract that carried a $1.75 million cap hit in 2012-13, while notching 44 points in 48 games.  The annual average value increase of the contract is significant while remaining what can be termed a "bridge contract" similar to the one that Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban signed earlier this year.
