Rielly is in the midst of a career season that has placed him firmly in the conversation for the Norris Trophy as the league’s top defenseman. Rielly is coming off of a week in which he scored 3 goals and added 6 assists in just four games for the Leafs, who enter the Holiday break on a four-game winning streak.
Rielly has 13 goals and 31 assists on the season through the Leafs’ 37 games.
