Jake Gardiner is a native of the great state of Minnesota. Jake was drafted 17th overall in the 2008 draft by the Duck organization. The young blue-liner played in 75 games last season (his first full NHL season) and lit the lamp 7 times along with 23 helpers for a total of 30 points. Gardiner is one of the top young d-men in the Leafs organization and is establishing himself in the league as a scoring threat (check out vid for the evidence). Jake signed the Score rookie card along with inscribing his number 51. This was a great rookie return.
