Maple Leafs recall Gardiner
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.

Gardiner has spent most of this season in the minors after scoring seven goals and finishing with 30 points in 75 games as a rookie in 2011-12 with the Maple Leafs. He has 10 goals and 31 points in 43 games for the Marlies, going scoreless in two games for the Maple Leafs.

Gardiner, 22, was a first-round pick by the Ducks Anaheim in the 2008 NHL Draft. He was acquired with forward Joffrey Lupul in the deal for defenseman Francois Beauchemin on Feb. 9, 2011.

Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
