Highly unlikely? Ehh. He still doesn't have an NHL shot, and his one-on-one defensive play is lackluster. And with so many quality defensemen on the Leafs right now that Gardiner can't even get a spot, Rielly will be hard pressed to get a starting spot out of camp unless he just plays out of his mind/someone else ***** the bed.
Which is absolutely fine; he's still right on track developmentally. Another year in junior isn't the end of the world. See Alex Pietrangelo.
