After the collision, Nazem Kadri of Avalanche faces threats

After his unintended Game 3 collision that injured St. Louis Blues goaltender Jordan Binnington, the Colorado Avalanche reported Sunday that forward Nazem Kadri has received threats.

In the first period of Colorado’s 5-2 win against the Blues in St. Louis on Saturday, Kadri clashed with Blues defenseman Calle Rosen, and the two slammed hard into Binnington.

“The Avalanche organisation is aware of threats made against Nazem Kadri and is investigating,” the team said in a statement.

Binnington will miss the rest of the second-round series due to a lower-body ailment, according to the Blues. The Avalanche are up 2-1 in the series.

“Naz has been subject to so many racist attacks and threats since last night that police had to be brought in. Racist attacks like this have no place in hockey and should be investigated and reported on,” Aliu said. Kadri has been suspended six times, including an eight-game ban for a hit on the Blues’ Justin Faulk during last season’s playoffs. He has been incident-free this season while scoring a career-best 87 points. After Saturday’s game, Blues coach Craig Berube mentioned Kadri’s reputation when addressing the collision.

Former NHL player Akim Aliu tweeted that he had talked with Kadri, a member of the Hockey Diversity Alliance, after the incident.

Avalanche coach Jared Bednar objected.” Reputation, it doesn’t mean anything,” he told reporters. “It’s either a legal play or it’s not. … The D and Naz are both going for the puck sitting at the top of the crease skating as hard as they can go. They’re both going after the puck the same way and they collide before they go in. Again, unfortunate.”
