It's refreshing to see a kid with this kind of skill on the back end that doesn't always play the cautious safe approach. We need more Morgan Rielly's.

I can't see him not making an immediate impact in the NHL. He's that good imo.
He makes great plays almost consistently. I've also been closely following his defensive game and his positioning is wonderful as well. He must be buying into what the coach is emphasizing / teaching because his positioning in the defensive zone is smoothly methodical and he doesn't seem to be out of position very often, if it all. When he does get caught out of position, his skating allows him to effortlessly get back into the play. He's not shy using his body in the corners or along the half-wall either.

If Morgan Rielly continues to improve, there's little doubt in my mind that he will be a number one d-man in the NHL. He's just as good as Murray.
