from Steve Buffery of the Toronto Sun,
Being a first-round draft pick of the Maple Leafs comes with enough pressure. Nazem Kadri didn’t need any more heading into his first NHL rookie camp this week.
Fortunately, a potential controversy that could have involved Kadri, the seventh overall pick in June, has been cut off at the pass, and all the 18-year-old forward has to worry about here this week at the Memorial Auditorium is playing hard and impressing the Leafs.
This year’s rookie camp is scheduled at the same time as the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, an annual observance that calls for practising Muslims to refrain from eating, drinking, smoking or anything considered ill-natured, from dawn until sunset.
