Maple Leafs recall Gardiner from AHL

The Toronto Maple Leafs announced Wednesday the team had recalled defenseman Jake Gardiner from the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League. He will be available for Wednesday's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Gardiner had no points, a minus-1 rating and four shots on goal in two games with the Maple Leafs earlier this season. Last season he had 30 points in 75 games.

In 43 AHL games this season, Gardiner has 10 goals and 12 assists.

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
