Leafs WIll Consider Rielly For Top D Pairing

News: One of Morgan Rielly or Jake Gardiner will be asked to take Carl Gunnarson's spot on the top defense pairing, reports Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun.
Analysis: Yikes. Both guys have the talent, but that's a lot of pressure. We like Morgan Rielly a lot more than Gardiner, but young Morgan may need a bit less pressure in his sophomore season. Wow.

Leafs' Rielly Gets Assist, But Finishes Minus-3

News: Reilly had an assist in a losing effort in New Jersey on Sunday night. It was his fourth assist in his last six games.
Analysis: Slowly, but surely, Morgan Rielly is showing his offensive side and he now has 25 points in his rookie season. But Sunday's assist was eclipsed by his minus-3 showing in the 3-2 loss. Ouch.

Leafs' Rielly Picking Up Scoring Before Break

News: Morgan Rielly provided assists in six of the Leafs' 11 games before the Olympic break.
Analysis: Any concern that the 19-year-old wasn't ready to contribute at the NHL level appears to have dissipated at this point, as coach Randy Carlyle has regularly entrusted Morgan Rielly with 18-plus minutes of ice time of late. With Dion Phaneuf signed to a contract extension in addition to Rielly's expected improvement as he matures, it appears the Leafs have a solid long-term foundation on the blue line.

Leafs' Rielly Nets A Goal Wednesday

News: Morgan Rielly scored a goal in Wednesday's game against the Sabres to earn the first star selection.
Analysis: Morgan Rielly tallied his second goal of the season on his only attempt for the Maple Leafs to go along with his 11 assists on the season. The young defenseman has been one of the most productive for Toronto this year.

Leafs Hanging On To Rielly

News: Morgan Rielly will not be loaned to Team Canada for the World Junior Championships, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.
Analysis: While fans of Team Canada may be disappointed, this is great news for his fantasy owners. Morgan Rielly won't miss any games for the tournament now, and the Leafs' desire to hold onto him is a good sign that they really like the way he's playing. With one goal and nine assists in 27 games, he'll continue to be a key piece of the Toronto blue line moving forward.

Team Canada In Future For Leafs' Rielly?

News: John-Michael Liles' recall Friday is fuelling speculation that Morgan Rielly will be released to play for Team Canada at the upcoming World Junior Championships. The Leafs now have eight healthy defenders on the roster.
Analysis: The harsh reality for Team Canada is simple -- Morgan Rielly has been the Leafs' second or third best defender so far this year, so it's highly unlikely he'll be released. Then again, what does it say about your blue line if a 19-year-old holds such status. Rielly was a healthy scratch Thursday when the Leafs played the Stars; it remains to be seen if he'll be back in the saddle Saturday.

Leafs' Rielly Scratched Thursday

News: Morgan Rielly will be a healthy scratch Thursday against the Stars, Jonas Siegel of TSN reports.
Analysis: The 19-year-old blueliner has nine goals in 22 games so far this season, but he'll get the night off as Cody Franson returns from a lower-body injury Thursday.

Leafs' Rielly Will Not Be Released For World Juniors

News: Morgan Rielly will not be released to Team Canada for the upcoming 2014 World Junior Championship, reports TSN.ca. "We feel that he can play here and make a contribution," said Leafs' head coach Randy Carlyle. "He's growing into an NHL hockey player."
Analysis: While he has been a recent healthy scratch, Morgan Rielly has also been the Leafs' second-best defender at times. This is good news for those owners who routinely use Rielly -- there's no need to find an alternate for the two weeks of the tournament.

Leafs Sit Rielly Friday

News: Morgan Rielly will be a healthy scratch Friday against Buffalo, reports TSN.
Analysis: Coach Randy Carlyle has the luxury of a healthy blue line, so he can sit anyone. The entire group of blueliners has struggled to implement a solid defensive system and ends up running around far too much. Morgan Rielly will watch from upstairs and maybe he can improve the overall approach when he slots back in.

Leafs' Rielly: Two Assists

News: Morgan Rielly played 18:04 in his return to the ice and set up both Toronto goals in a 4-2 loss to Nashville.
Analysis: He delivered four hits and one block, but finished minus-1. Watch for him to stay in the lineup until Mark Fraser returns from injury.

Leafs' Rielly To Play Tuesday

News: Morgan Rielly, who was a healthy scratch the last two contests, will play Tuesday when the Leafs take on the Islanders, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Morgan Rielly is still looking for his first NHL goal, though he does have six assists to go along with 24 hits and 23 blocks in the 15 games he's played.

Leafs' Rielly May Slot Back In Tuesday

News: Morgan Rielly, who has been a healthy scratch recently, may slot back into the lineup Tuesday against the Islanders.
Analysis: Fellow defender Mark Fraser left Saturday's game with an injury, and while he tried to practice Tuesday, he just couldn't and had to leave the ice after five minutes. Morgan Rielly took Fraser's spot beside Paul Ranger at Monday's practice.

Leafs' Rielly Notches Assist In Loss

News: Morgan Rielly assisted on the Leafs' second-period power-play goal in Wednesday's loss to the Wild.
Analysis: Morgan Rielly was a healthy scratch in the Leafs' previous game after Mark Fraser was activated from IR, but he demonstrated why the club appears committed to keep him at the NHL level despite the limited ice time he's been receiving of late. In addition to the assist, he narrowly missed out on a game-winning goal in the overtime period.

Leafs' Rielly: Comes Close To First NHL Goal

News: Morgan Rielly came close to getting his first NHL goal Tuesday night. He was originally credited with a thrid-period goal, but it was quickly changed when officials realized the puck went off Nazem Kadri in front of the net.
Analysis: There was a huge celebration on the ice -- the kid is obviously well-liked by his teammates. But he ended up with the assist -- his fifth of the season. Five assists, 21 hits and 20 blocked shots, along with a relatively decent minus-1 rating, in 10 games is a solid performance for a teenage defender in the NHL. He'll get his first goal soon enough. Until then, he remains on a 40-point pace and that puts him into the mix as a regular activation.

Leafs' Rielly To Remain With Club

News: Morgan Rielly will remain with the Maple Leafs rather than returning to his junior club, Pierre LeBrun of ESPN reports.
Analysis: The Leafs will indeed roster Morgan Rielly beyond nine games, thus triggering the first year of his entry-level contract. Rielly, 19, is averaging more than 18 minutes of ice time through eight games this season, and has shown strong passing ability, but still has a lot to prove.

Leafs' Rielly Securing Roster Spot?

News: Leafs head coach Randy Carlyle has dropped hints that Morgan Rielly will stick with the big club beyond the nine-game window the team has to determine if they would prefer to send him back to juniors, THL.ca reports.
Analysis: As it currently stands, Morgan Rielly will play his ninth game with the Leafs on Friday against Columbus, while he's already chipped in four points (all assists) and a minus-2 rating over his first seven games. The bigger number to keep an eye out for, assuming Rielly reaches the nine-game mark, becomes 40 games, as that milestone is the threshold for accruing a full season of NHL service time.

Leafs' Rielly Makes NHL Debut

News: Morgan Rielly debuted Saturday, playing 18:07 and recording a minus-3 rating with four shots on goal, four giveaways, two blocked shots and one hit.
Analysis: Don't let the line fool you. He struggled early, but settled down and played some excellent hockey in the second half of the game. It could be hard for the Leafs to send this kid down.

Leafs' Rielly Could Play Saturday

News: Morgan Rielly could make his NHL debut in Saturday's game against the Senators, TSN's Darren Dreger reports.
Analysis: Morgan Rielly has been a healthy scratch for the first two games of the season for the Maple Leafs. With Mark Fraser potentially missing time due to injury, Rielly could finally see the ice on defense.

Leafs' Rielly A Healthy Scratch Once Again

News: Morgan Rielly was a healthy scratch for Wednesday's game against the Flyers.
Analysis: With the highly-touted prospect left out of the lineup for the second straight game, it appears the Maple Leafs want to ease him into action by having him make his debut for the home opener. Once he gets on the ice, Morgan Rielly will have to prove himself right away to remain with the team, as the Maple Leafs want the former No. 5 overall pick to play regular minutes either with the parent club or WHL Moose Jaw.

Leafs' Rielly To Sit Out Opener

News: Morgan Rielly will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's season opener against the Canadiens, TSN Radio 1050's Jonas Siegel reports.
Analysis: The Leafs won't quite throw their 19-year-old defense prospect into the fire, but he most likely won't be sitting very often if the team plans to keep him on the NHL roster. Unless he wins regular minutes, Morgan Rielly will likely end up back in the WHL with Moose Jaw, where he racked up 54 points in 60 games last year.

Leafs' Rielly Expected To Begin In NHL

News: Morgan Rielly is expected to make the Leafs' season-opening roster, the Toronto Star reports.
Analysis: Morgan Rielly is a bright, highly regarded defensive prospect, and it appears the future is now for the 19-year-old. He spent most of his season last year in juniors, but played in 14 AHL games. Though it's possible the Leafs will only give him a short trial run to avoid burning a year off his entry-level deal, many believe he will play 40-50 games with the Maple Leafs this season.

Leafs' Rielly Impressing Head Coach

News: Rielly has made a strong impression on his coach this preseason, but it's not clear if he'll earn a roster spot, according to head coach Randy Carlyle in a post-game interview on Saturday night. "Morgan Rielly is close," he said.
Analysis: Morgan Rielly is too talented to be sent back to junior, but it's his only option considering his age. He will likely get a nine-game audition before a decision is made.

Leafs Send Rielly Back To Juniors

News: The Maple Leafs will send Reilly back to WHL Moose Jaw, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Morgan Rielly, the fifth overall pick in the 2012 NHL Draft, played for Team Canada in the recent World Junior Hockey Championship, recording a goal and two assists in six games. He'll head back to juniors to hone his craft as a defender, but he's already a blue-chipper in keeper formats thanks to his upside as a puck-mover.

Leafs' Prospect Rielly Continues To Impress

News: Morgan Rielly was paired with Leafs' captain Dion Phaneuf at training camp Wednesday. Coach Randy Carlyle likened it to giving Rielly "the security blanket" of playing with one of the team's best defenders, reports TSN.ca. "I thought he showed flashes of his ability to skate and move the puck."
Analysis: Morgan Rielly acquitted himself well with Phaneuf and even impressed the captain, who told post-game reporters that Rielly plays well beyond his age. Jake Gardiner's injury absence could open the door for Rielly to stick with the big club. He might actually have fantasy value this year.

Leafs' Rielly Impresses Coach With Skills

News: Morgan Rielly has impressed Leafs' coach Randy Carlyle early in training camp, reports Sportsnet.ca. "He's got great vision on the ice," Carlyle said. "If you watch him pass the puck and move the puck, he's got NHL passing skills. You see him up top on the power play, you can see that's one of his strengths."
Analysis: The injury to Jake Gardiner has opened up a window for Morgan Rielly to step in and he's taking that bull by the horns. He struggled with defensive zone coverage and gap control during drills, but that's all but expected for a teenager fresh from junior. At minimum, we expect him to play the five games he's entitled to play before his contract kicks in. It'll be up to him and his coach at that point, but his future is very bright.
