Gardiner (back) took the ice ahead of Friday's practice session, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports.
While Gardiner wasn't able to take part in practice, the fact that he is at least back on the ice is a step in the right direction. The blueliner should probably still be considered week-to-week at this point and the team hasn't provided any additional details on when he might be ready to return. In the meantime, Igor Ozhiganov and Justin Holl figure to slot in as the third pairing.
Gardiner (back) is not progressing as quickly as hoped, reports Sportsnet.ca.

Gardiner (back) remains week-to-week, Michael Traikos of Postmedia reports.
Gardiner reportedly is dealing with two separate injuries, but the only one that's been specified is a back issue that surfaced in late January. Despite the defenseman having missed the past four games, Gardiner is not on injured reserve, as more roster flexibility was afforded to teams following the trade deadline.
