Morgan Rielly Comments On Missing Third Straight Practice.

Published October 29, 2019 at 2:54 PM

"Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Morgan Rielly has got off to an incredible start to the season. The Leafs' 25 year old defenseman has 13 points in 13 games so far and is tied for second among defenseman for point leaders. He's been logging big minutes which includes 26 minutes against San Jose, 25 against Boston and 27 against Columbus, however he's missed three straight practices and only logged 20 minutes against Montreal. Rielly seems to be dealing with a minor injury but is just thankful for the athletic team around him. "Things happen. You deal with certain things and we have a staff in place that helps deal with that. You have to do what you have to do to be able to play. If you have to miss a couple of practices, not a big deal."
Hopefully Rielly doesn't burn out.
