That's very unfortunate. It looks like he won't get the chance to play under Dallas Eakins for a significant stretch. He'll be back in the WHL next year and I think that's part of the reason why Moose Jaw didn't trade him this year.
They will next year, IMO.
Why would they not deal him this season, only to trade him next?
I'm guessing they want to retain Rielly for team marketability reasons. He's a great player to watch and an elite prospect for a high profile NHL team. If that's their reasoning I don't see them trading him next season either.
