Morgan Rielly started his off-season preparation earlier because of the World Cup of Hockey in September.
"Right now, I am trying to lift as heavy as I can, become as powerful as I can, when normally I would have an extra month to do that," Rielly said. "So you are just trying to squeeze it all in, having to do it all sooner." He added that he usually doesn't skate that much until September, but he is hoping that a good performance at the World Cup with Team North America will transfer over to the regular season. Rielly had dinner with Toronto teammate Auston Matthews a few weeks ago and they are both looking forward to the tournament. Matthews believes Team North America has the talent to win it and they all appear to be motivated by the underdog label. Aug 12 - 5:26 PM

The Toronto Maple Leafs and Morgan Rielly are reportedly negotiating a new contract extension.

The 22-year-old finished the 2015-16 regular season with nine goals and 36 points in 2015-16. He's a big piece of Toronto's future and he'll be paid accordingly.

Morgan Rielly set a new personal high with his ninth goal of the season on Wednesday night.

It was also his first shorthanded marker. He has recorded a point in each of his last three games to give him a total of 36 on the year. That is also a career high for the 22-year-old defender. Rielly has plenty of offensive talent and he should be able to build on this season's performance.

Defenseman Morgan Rielly scored the Maple Leafs' lone goal in a 5-1 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets in Toronto Wednesday night.

Rielly scored a shorthanded goal at 1:43 of the first period, but the Blue Jackets bounced back with five unanswered goals to win with ease. The season at home has mercifully come to an end for the cellar-dwelling Leafs, who posted a 14-18-9 record at the Air Canada Centre in 2015-16.

Morgan Rielly collected two assists in a 6-5 OT win against Anaheim on Thursday night.

The 22-year-old picked up a power-play helper on a goal by Tyler Bozak and he had a hand in Toronto's game winner by Nazem Kadri. Rielly has registered 33 points in 73 games this season.
Mar 25 - 9:17 AM

Morgan Rielly scored his eighth goal of the season in Toronto's 4-1 loss to Florida on Thursday night.

With 30 points in 70 games, Rielly is forming into a top-flight defender, but the 22-year-old is playing tough minutes on an inexperienced Leafs blueline. It might be a few years until he produces consistently to his potential and fixes his -14 rating.
Mar 17 - 11:39 PM

Morgan Rielly scored a goal in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Nashville Predators.

The Leafs found themselves down 3-0 in the second period after the Preds got a hat trick from forward Filip Forsberg. Rielly's goal at the 17:37 mark of the third frame cut the Preds' lead to 3-2, but that's as close as Toronto would come to tying the game. The 21-year-old has six goals, 25 points and a minus-11 rating in 58 games this season. Josh Leivo also scored for the Maple Leafs.

Morgan Rielly is believed to be "untouchable" on Toronto's roster with the trade deadline just around the corner.

"I don't know if that's true and I don't put a whole lot of merit into what I hear from outside sources," Rielly said. "With the deadline coming up, there are probably going to be moves because that's the nature of the business. All the players are worried about is playing hard and trying to be a part of this team. I don't pay too much attention to that stuff." Rielly has outstanding potential, especially offensively. The 21-year-old defender is still learning defensively, but he has played against the best players on the opposition this year. Rielly has five goals and 22 points in 48 games in 2015-16.

With another pair of helpers in Saturday's 3-2 loss to Montreal, Morgan Rielly is on the cusp of new high in points.

Rielly now has 17 assists and 22 points on the season, well within striking distance of his career highs of 25 assists and 29 points in a season. It seems likely the future of the Maple Leafs' blue line sits with this fine young man.

Jan 15 - 10:21 PM

Morgan Rielly hasn't spent any time in the sin bin this season after 22 games.

That's impressive considering he has averaged 22:07 of ice time per game against the best players on the opposition. "If I'm not taking any tripping or hooking penalties, it means I'm in pretty good position," said Rielly, who has generated just 26 penalty minutes in his last two seasons combined. The 21-year-old defender also has three goals and 13 points.

Morgan Rielly registered two assists in the Maple Leafs' 3-2 shootout loss to the Capitals Saturday night.

James van Riemsdyk and Daniel Winnik scored the Leafs' goals in the loss, while Joffrey Lupul registered an assist. The Leafs had this game in hand but let the Captials score with less than a second left in regulation. After an exciting three-on-three overtime, the Leafs lost the game in a shootout. This will be a tough loss for Toronto coach Mike Babcock to swallow.
