Report: Leafs send Gardiner down to AHL team

The SportsXchange

Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Jake Gardiner has been assigned to the AHL Toronto Marlies, according to TSN's Darren Dreger.

Gardiner suffered concussion-like symptoms while playing for the Marlies on Dec. 8. He was cleared to return prior to Toronto's 5-2 win over Pittsburgh on Wednesday, and he played 17:29 in that game.

Gardiner, 22, played more than 21 minutes in Thursday's game, but was on the ice for two of the Islanders' four third-period goals.

Gardiner did not get a point in either of the two games he played this season, but he had seven goals and 23 assists in 75 games for Toronto last season.
