Gardiner will be back in the Leafs' lineup on Friday.
Gardiner has been a healthy scratch in the Maple Leafs last two games, but he will be back in the lineup tonight, paired with Morgan Rielly.

Gardiner led the Maple Leafs in ice-time on Saturday (23:04) but will not play on Sunday with Cody Franson returning from a knee injury. There is no word on whether Gardiner is dealing with an injury, but you have to think they would not make him a healthy scratch.
The Leafs signed Jake Gardiner to a five-year, $20.25 million deal.
Gardiner, 24, set new career-highs in goals (10), points (31) and power-play points (11) in 2013-14. The 2008 17th overall pick has shown flashes of brilliance in his first three NHL seasons but needs to work on being more consistent. He has the potential to be a top-30 fantasy defenseman this season.
Gardiner served as a healthy scratch last night, but will draw in alongside Morgan Rielly tonight. Gardiner has one goal and one assist in his last 10 games and a total of 13 points (2G / 11A) in 43 games this season.
