In all fairness, Rielly's 18. It's hard for an 18 year old not to get considerably better at skating over the next 6 years of his life. Especially with the help they get.

Rielly's one of the more impressive skating junior Dmen I've seen in a while. And he's got some nice tools and a head that can take him pretty far.
