Gardiner scored the game-winning goal and added a power-play assist in Tuesday's 3-2 victory over the Stars. Despite solid play thus far, these points actually doubled his season point total. Gardiner's game is developing, but right now, he's just not delivering enough production to make him worthy in shallow leagues.
Gardiner (lower body) will return to the lineup Friday evening against the Rangers, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports. The enigmatic blueliner was placed on injured reserve last Friday, though his injury is believed to have been sustained Oct. 17 against the Pens. Now, he'll try to revive a team defense that has allowed 28 goals in just eight games, which will be no easy task against a Rangers squad that is currently fifth overall in the league standings.
Gardiner (lower body) will likely return to action Friday against the Rangers, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports. Gardiner was paired with Dion Phaneuf in Thursday's practice, which is a good indication that he will return to Toronto's lineup Friday against New York. Either way, the 25-year-old blueliner's availability should be confirmed prior to puck drop Friday night.
Gardiner will sit out Monday's game against the Coyotes with a lower-body injury, but is aiming to return Friday, Jonas Siegel of TSN 1050 reports. Gardiner has been on injured reserve since last Friday because of the lower-body issue, but his injury likely dates back to the last game he participated in Oct. 17 against the Penguins. He's aiming to rejoin the lineup Friday, but his progression throughout the week should provide a better picture on whether or not he'll indeed return then.
Gardiner (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Friday, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports. It's still unclear exactly what is ailing Gardiner, but the defenseman was held out of Wednesday's contest against the Sabres with the setback. He'll now be sidelined for at least the next week, though the 25-year-old has no established timetable as of now.
