On February 9, 2011, Anaheim traded Gardiner, along with Joffrey Lupul and a conditional fourth round draft pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, to the Toronto Maple Leafs for defenceman François Beauchemin.
On March 15, 2011, Gardiner agreed to a three-year, entry-level contract with the Maple Leafs.
Gardiner started the 2011–12 NHL season with the Leafs. He scored his first NHL goal on January 24, 2012 against Al Montoya of the New York Islanders. At the end of the season, Gardiner was named to the NHL All-Rookie Team after scoring 30 points in 75 games with the Maple Leafs.
On May 6, 2013, Gardiner became the first Toronto Maple Leaf to score a home playoff goal since Mats Sundin scored in a 3-2 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on May 4, 2004, a span of nine years and two days.
On July 29, 2014, the Leafs signed Gardiner to a 5 year deal worth $20.25 million.
