Rielly (lower-body) is day-to-day and will not play on Thursday.
Rielly left Tuesday’s game with a lower-body injury after crashing into the boards and retired to the dressing room after playing just 2:57 TOI. Rielly is day-to-day and will not play Thursday, which means that Frank Corrado will draw into the lineup for the second time this season.
Rielly missed the Maple Leafs’ morning skate, but will play in New Jersey.
Rielly was given the morning off in New Jersey, but will be in the lineup vs. the Devils. Rielly has had a solid season, picking up 17 points (1G / 16A) across 37 games. Rielly is on-pace for a career-high 186 shots and his 1.2 shooting percentage should improve and he will start finding the back of the net with more regularity.
The Maple Leafs have signed Morgan Rielly to a six-year extension worth $30 million ($5.0M AAV).
Rielly appeared in all 82 games this season, picking up nine goals and 27 assists (36 points). In his first three NHL seasons, Rielly has collected 19 goals and 73 assists (92 points) and a minus-46 rating in 236 career games. Rielly will be the backbone of the Maple Leafs' blueline for years to come.
Rielly is "fine" after leaving practice with a lower-body injury.
Rielly limped off of the ice at practice on Wednesday, but said following the skate that he is "fine" and left "only as a precaution". The young blueliner is coming off of his best game of the season---he had two assists, plus-1 rating and six shots in 22:27 vs. the Sabres on Tuesday.
Rielly draws into the lineup tonight with Mark Fraser (knee) hurt.
Rielly has been a healthy scratch in three of the last four games but draws back in tonight vs. the Islanders. In his first 15 NHL games Rielly has six assists and a minus-4 rating. He has a bright future ahead of him, but is not fantasy relevant yet.
It looks like Morgan Rielly will be a healthy scratch tonight with Mark Fraser returning to the lineup.
Rielly has been solid posting five assists in 13 games, but he is still only 19-years-old and has tons of room to grow. He will sit tonight, but I don't think he will sit for too many consecutive games.
Morgan Rielly confirms he will make his NHL debut tonight.
Earlier in the week Rielly was working with Jake Gardniner, but he will start tonight's game with Cody Franson as his partner. He has all the tools of an emerging offensive-defenseman. He is a great skater who moves the puck effectively. His play in his own zone still needs some work but for all fantasy purposes he is good. He had 12 goals and 42 assists (54 points) in 60 games with the Moose Jaw Warriors (WHL) last season.
WIth Mark Fraser on long-term IR, Morgan Rielly will make his NHL debut tomorrow in Toronto.
Rielly will make his debut with Jake Gardiner as his D-partner. That is a high-powered, offensive duo that should be able to produce for the Leafs. If Rielly can get off to a hot-start with Fraser on IR, he could stick with the team.
Morgan Rielly could make his NHL debut on Saturday.
Rielly sat in each of the Maple Leafs first two games of the season but could play on Saturday. Mark Fraser was seen leaving the arena on crutches last night, which opens a spot on the blueline for the 19-year-old.
It appears as if Morgan Rielly will open the season with the Maple Leafs. Rielly emerged as the big story out of camp — a 19-year-old defenceman who stole the show from veterans like John-Michael Liles and Korbinian Holzer, both of whom were placed on waivers Sunday.
Rielly led all Leafs in ice time in the final tune-up game Saturday, as management took one long, last look at him before making their decision. While the roster has not been submitted yet, it appears Rielly will remain in Toronto for at least nine games, the limit before the clock starts ticking on the first year of his entry-level contract.
