Notes: Canadian defenseman is the fifth-ranked North American skater by NHL Central Scouting and is the second blueliner on that list...A torn ACL caused him to miss the last five months of the 2011-12 WHL regular season, but he still managed to post three goals and 15 assists in just 18 games for Moose Jaw...Returned for the playoffs and notched three goals and three assists in five games for the Warriors...Considered by scouts to be a dynamic skater, Rielly has drawn comparisons to Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith.
