Colorado Avalanche center Nazem Kadri has been the subject of threats after Saturday's Game 3 win over the St. Louis Blues.

The Avalanche released a statement saying the franchise "is aware of threats made toward Nazem Kadri and is working with local law enforcement to investigate."

Former professional hockey player Akim Aliu tweeted that he recently spoke to Kadri. Aliu said that Kadri has dealt with racist attacks and threats since Saturday and confirmed that the police had to get involved.
