The Toronto Maple Leafs will be without Jake Gardiner for the foreseeable future as the defenseman is considered week-to-week with a back injury, the team announced Wednesday.

The 28-year-old was ruled out for the Leafs' game versus the Edmonton Oilers earlier in the day. Igor Ozhiganov dressed in his place Wednesday night.

Gardiner played slightly over 16 minutes in his last tilt against the Buffalo Sabres, nearly five minutes fewer than his season average.

He's collected 29 points this season, suiting up for 60 of Toronto's 62 games so far.
