Leafs Recall Gardiner From Marlies
Dave Nonis, Senior Vice-President and General Manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, announced Sunday that the hockey club has recalled defenceman Jake Gardiner from the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League.
Gardiner, 22, appeared in two games for the Maple Leafs this season, registering four shots on goal. The 6-2, 184-pound defenceman missed the Leafs first-two games of the season due to injury. Gardiner has registered 18 points (nine goals, nine assists) with eight penalty minutes in 23 games for the Marlies in 2012-13.
