JAKE GARDINER RUMORS

Nonis: Gunnarsson departure means Gardiner, Rielly need to step up

One of the curious trades made on Saturday involved the Toronto Maple Leafs. They dealt defenseman Carl Gunnarsson and the 90th overall pick to the St. Louis Blues for Roman Polak. While that deal netted the Leafs a physical blue liner, it also sent Dion Phaneuf‘s top-pairing partner out of town. That means there’s a spot next to the Leafs captain and a chance to play a lot...

How About Some Leafs Talk

from Mike Brophy of CBC, From this little corner of the hockey universe, I see only four players on the Maple Leafs who should be considered untouchables: Bernier, defencemen Morgan Rielly and Jake Gardiner and left-winger James van Riemsdyk. All others should be made available to allow Toronto to become a better defensive team that is willing to pay a price for victory...

Should the Edmonton Oilers push to acquire Nazem Kadri or Jake Gardiner of the Toronto Maple Leafs?

This just in from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe & Mail, more talk that Toronto Maple Leafs GM Dave Nonis would be willing to trade Nazem Kadri or Jake Gardiner. “You have the sense that Maple Leafs GM David Nonis would happily move two of his youngsters, Nazem Kadri and Jake Gardiner, in the right deal…” My take Duhatschek is one of those reasonable, smart veteran reporters...

Toronto Maple Leafs’ Jake Gardiner’s Unfortunate Tweet

Jake Gardiner who is a defenceman for the Toronto Maple Leafs probably wishes he didn’t have access to social media following an unfortunate Tweet this morning.   We aren’t sure if his  Twitter account was hacked, or he just really wanted the world to know that he joined an ‘adult’ site. Either way, it isn’t a great look. The Tweet was, of course, deleted quickly after...

Jake Gardiner Free’d; Will Play Tonight for the Toronto Maple Leafs

By Tony Ambrogio (@SNTonyAmbrogio) Getty Images As Mike Komisarek walked into the room, he saw the large media scrum surrounding defenseman Jake Gardiner and said, “Jake Gardiner is free!” A week after his agent sent out a #FreeJakeGardiner tweet, the Toronto Maple Leafs called up the defenseman who will play tonight against Tampa Bay. “He did an excellent job,” Leafs Coach...

Mike Augello: Gardiner Recalled; Rangers Rally And Romp Over Leafs

As expected, the minor league stint of Jake Gardiner lasted one game, as the Maple Leafs have called up the 22 year old defenseman from the Toronto Marlies. The AHL will be on their All Star Break from today till Thursday, so having Gardiner stay down with the Marlies made no sense. Gardiner had an assist Tim Connolly's power play goal in a 3-1 loss to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton...

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

Maple Leafs Interested in Top Prospect Schultz

Jake Gardiner might not be the Toronto Maple Leafs’ only top prospect on defence next season. That is, of course, the Maple Leafs manage to get their hands on Justin Schultz. According to Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, the Maple Leafs will take a “serious run” at Schultz if he doesn’t re-sign with the Anaheim Ducks prior to July 1. From Simmons: Should Jake Gardiner...

Leafs' Gardiner earning high praise

At 21, Jake Gardiner is already averaging more than 20 minutes a night on the Maple Leafs' blue line. Knowing his pedigree, Gardiner's precocious poise should come as no surprise. Toronto Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke was the general manager in Anaheim when the Ducks drafted Jake Gardiner in 2008. So Burke knew the young defenseman would be a quality asset for the Maple Leafs...
