TORONTO - The Toronto Marlies trainers will be as busy as elves this Christmas.

Three front-line players, led by wonky defenceman Jake Gardiner, will be out of the lineup until after Boxing Day.

Gardiner has the most serious injury, still bothered by a very sore neck and some headaches more than a week after being hit from behind in a game against Rochester. He played the next shift and scored, but departed the match.
