TORONTO (AP) Toronto team president Brendan Shanahan says forward Nazem Kadri will be held out of the Maple Leafs' next two games.

Kadri missed a team meeting Sunday and was made a healthy scratch for Monday's game.

Shanahan says that after consulting with general manager Dave Nonis and the coaches, the organization wants to make a bigger point by keeping Kadri out for Wednesday's game against Buffalo and Friday's game in Calgary.

He adds that if things go well, Kadri will be available to play Saturday for the Leafs in Vancouver.

Shanahan says it's time for Kadri to start making better decisions, but he did not provide further details.
