Good to see. Definitely something that was understated when he was drafted and suggested he doesn't have much of a physical presence on the blue line. It just shows that Rielly is not just a PP QB, or puck rusher, but can be used in all game situations.
If Morgan can play with a bit of sandpaper and be resposible in his own end, we all know the offence will be there, then this kid is going to be real good. Nice to have him and Jake the Snake QB-ing the back end for many years. Now we just need to draft some forwards, most importantly a center.
Pretty nice bout. Nice to see that he can step up for himself when needed. Plus, just fun watching him throwing the guy down even if he went along with him. Definitely a draw, guy did not lose that fight.
My favourite thing about that clip is how, even in some tiny/random segment of play, he still stands out as being really dangerous with the puck. This has been the case every time I've seen him play, you don't have to look for him at all, his skill stands out immediately.
As for the fight, he lost, but still did fine for a finesse player.
Good to see he stands up for his team mates and is not the turtle type player. On the flip side I don't like seeing this from our top prospect when it's not expected from him, It doesn't take much to tweak or break something falling awkwardly. All in all good for him for showing he's not afraid to drop the gloves but it's not in his best interest or the leafs best interest for him to be doing this kind of stuff. There is a lot invested in this young guy.
