Some concern in Toronto as Leafs defenseman Jake Gardiner, currently playing for the AHL Marlies, is out with the dreaded concussion-like symptoms.

Marlies coach Dallas Eakins won’t call it a concussion (where have we heard that before?), only that Gardiner is feeling symptoms in his head and neck (via @KyleTheReporter).

It’s believed Gardiner suffered the injury Saturday when hit (charged, to be specific) by Rochester’s Kevin Porter. Gardiner stayed in the game and even scored the winning goal, but was eventually pulled.

After the game, Eakins said Gardiner “wasn’t in a concussion state, just not feeling quite right.”

Gardiner has been an offensive force this season, tallying nine goals and eight assists in 22 games. The Leafs have high hopes for the 22-year-old who was acquired, along with Joffrey Lupul, from Anaheim in 2011 for François Beauchemin.
