The latest on the availability of defenceman Jake Gardiner

In other news, the Toronto Maple Leafs continue to get calls on the availability of defenceman Jake Gardiner.

Sources tell The Dreger Report an additional two teams called last week to inquire about the possibility of a trade. But unless a substantial offer surfaces, Gardiner will not be traded and the Leafs insist they are not shopping him.

It’s believed last week’s interest was generated by the ongoing media speculation. To date, Toronto has not received an offer for Gardiner.
