Gardiner inks 5-year contract

The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed restricted free agent defenseman Jake Gardiner to a five-year, $20.25 million contract.

Gardiner, 24, tallied 10 goals and 21 assists for 31 points, along with 19 penalty minutes, in 80 games with the Leafs last season.

The native of Minnetonka, Minnesota, has played in 167 career NHL regular-season games, all with the Leafs, and has accumulated 17 goals and 48 assists for 65 points, to date.

The Maple Leafs acquired Gardiner, along with forward Joffrey Lupul and a draft pick, on Feb. 9, 2011 from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for defenseman Francois Beauchemin.

Gardiner was originally drafted 17th overall by the Ducks in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.
