The Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday reportedly recalled defenseman Jake Gardiner and sent fellow blueliner Korbinian Holzer to the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have recalled defenseman Jake Gardiner from the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League.

Quote of the Day

They said, 'You're going to love the city. It's smaller than Philadelphia, but you're going to love it. You're going to love the fans. Just watching the playoffs last year, the fans seemed louder there than they did anywhere. I'm really excited about that.
