Moose Jaw, SK--- Warriors Morgan Rielly from Vancouver, BC was selected 5th overall in the 1st round by the Toronto Maple Leafs friday at the 2012 NHL Entry Draft in Pittsburgh. Morgan was in attendance for the draft.
Morgan missed all but 18 regular-season games due to a knee injury suffered in November, but still managed three goals and 18 points. He rejoined the Tribe for the Husky Eastern Conference championship series in late April, netting three assists in five games as the team fell to the eventual WHL champion Edmonton Oil Kings.
Outstanding speed and skating ability, make Rielly a thrilling offensive talent. His poise and patience with the puck, coupled with terrific vision and passing ability, make Rielly a potential future power play quarterback. His speed, agility and puckhandling skills enable him to make dazzling rushes up ice with the puck and create offensive chances by joining the rush. As good as he is offensively, Rielly is very effective in his own zone, with good awareness, positioning and compete level.
“He’s a special player,” said Warriors’ General Manager Alan Millar. “The first thing that stands out is his skating, his great mobility and great speed. When you couple that with a high hockey IQ and very strong puck skills, and you have the makings of a great player.”
Morgan will be back in Moose Jaw in August for training camp and an exiting 2012/13 season.
