The Toronto Maple Leafs recalled the 21-year-old forward Thursday following an injury to Colby Armstrong.

Armstrong is out indefinitely after suffering a left ankle sprain during his first shift in Wednesday's 4-3 victory over Winnipeg.

Kadri was expected to start his year with the AHL Marlies following a knee injury in training camp. He had been assigned to the farm team on Wednesday.
