It seems as though Ben Simmons is not the only professional player getting posters made in his honor.
Toronto Maple Leafs forward Nazem Kadri was suspended for the remainder of the first round after cross-checking Bruins forward Jake DeBrusk directly in the face during the third period of Game 2. The malicious hit brought out a rash of angry responses by all NHL fans, but especially those who support the Bruins.
One fan decided to take his anger out in a more productive way by placing a wanted poster outside TD Garden before Game 5 Friday night.

Of course, this evokes what the folks in BK did to their favorite new villain Thursday night. Kadri can't fight back, though.

It looks like some Brooklyn fans decided to hang some "creative" signs near the Barclays Center making fun of Ben Simmons.https://t.co/YyBtSPNbW6
It is safe to say that Boston fans did not enjoy Kadri's antics in Game 2, and have not forgotten any of his previous transgressions, which included another illegal check to then Bruins forward Tommy Wingels in the first round of last year's playoffs.
Nazem Kadri has a long track record of suspensions, and he has opened the door for fans to get on him whenever he touches the ice. Although Bruins fans won't get the chance to serenade Kadri Friday night, the wanted poster sent the message to the Leafs forward that no one has forgotten the hit laid on DeBrusk.
Luckily, DeBrusk was okay and will be in the lineup Friday when the Bruins look to go up 3-2 on Toronto in the series. The Boston faithful should be amped up for this one, and the TD Garden should be rocking, especially if the image of Nazem Kadri watching from the press box happens to be displayed on the big screen.
