Gardiner, 24, is coming off his entry-level contract and likely headed towards a bridge deal with the Leafs. As Kevin McGran of The Toronto Star shared, Leafs GM Dave Nonis isn’t worried about getting the blue liner re-signed.
“Talks are on-going,” Nonis said. “Things are going fine. I don’t see any hiccups there.”
According to CapGeek.com, the Leafs have $4.3 million in cap space now that they’ve got Reimer’s deal done. With that kind of cushion, the Leafs have plenty of room to work out a short-term deal with the young defenseman.
Last season, Gardiner had 10 goals and 31 points in 80 games and averaged 21:05 of ice time per game. He’s valuable and is someone the team wants to see develop a stronger defensive game. For now, he and fellow youngster Morgan Rielly are their two best puck-carriers and players the organization wants to see step up next season.
