Morgan Rielly collected two assists in a 2-0 win over Washington on Tuesday night.

Rielly's shot from the point was banged into the net by Connor Brown to give the Maple Leafs a 1-0 lead early in the third period. Nazem Kadri sealed the win with an empty-netter with assists going to Rielly and Zach Hyman. Rielly has produced five helpers in six games this year.

Morgan Rielly scored a goal in Friday's 3-0 win over the Buffalo Sabres.

Rielly's goal was gorgeous, as he went end-to-end before finding the back of the net (click on the link below to watch the goal). The 23-year-old is entering his fifth season, so the Leafs will need him to take another big step forward. He had six goals, 27 points and a minus-20 rating in 2016-17. He'll have some fantasy value in deeper standard leagues.

Morgan Rielly is slated to be paired with Ron Hainsey this season.

Hainsey was signed to a two-year, $6 million contract this summer after he won the Stanley Cup with Pittsburgh. "We feel Rielly's a real, real good player," said coach Mike Babcock. "We want him to be upper echelon in the League so we needed a partner for him." Babcock also intends to have Nikita Zaitsev play alongside Jake Gardiner again.

Morgan Rielly registered his fourth point in four playoff games on Wednesday night.

Rielly didn't have a point in his NHL playoff debut, but he has notched one goal and three assists over a three-game point streak since then. He nearly had another marker in Game 4, but it was swept away from the goal line by Washington's Tom Wilson.

Rielly did all of his damage in the second period.

Morgan Rielly scored the game winning goal in overtime as the Maple Leafs beat the Hurricanes 3-2 Saturday night.

This was Rielly’s fourth goal of the season and it snapped a nine-game streak in which he failed to find the back of the net a single time. In that string, he earned only one assist, so he has not exactly been fantasy relevant.

The Leafs defenseman finished the game with two shots on goal and one hit in just over 20 minutes of ice time. Rielly has two goals and 21 points in 47 games this season. William Nylander and Nazem Kadri registered the assists on Toronto's only goal.

Morgan Rielly is playing even though he is still feeling the effects of a high ankle sprain.

Morgan Rielly returns to the Maples Leafs' blue line on Thursday against the Blues

Morgan Rielly (lower body) may be back in the lineup on Thursday.

"I felt good," Rielly said after practice on Wednesday. "I think I took a step forward. But it's all about waiting to see how it responds (Thursday). Right now, I am feeling pretty positive about it and I'm looking forward to seeing how it feels." His status will probably be determined after the morning skate.

Morgan Rielly (lower body) will not play on Tuesday night.

However, it looks like he is close to a return. Rielly skated alongside regular defense partner Nikita Zaitsev in the morning, but he isn't quite 100 percent yet.
Jan 31 - 1:20 PM

Morgan Rielly (lower body) is expected to be back shortly after the All-Star break.

Toronto has gone 2-2-1 without the team's top defender in the lineup, so he won't be rushed back into the lineup. "What it does, it allows Rielly to get healthy instead of getting him back too soon and he's not quite ready," coach Mike Babcock said. "He'll be ready to go after the break."
Jan 27 - 9:15 AM

Morgan Rielly (lower body) will be out for a fourth straight game Wednesday night.

He didn't take part in the morning skate. It's still believed to be possible that he could return before the All-Star break, but it isn't likely.
