The Wild, who are not very deep on the blue line, add a top prospect who will be a project going forward. Rielly lost most of his season due to an ACL injury suffered in November. Before his injury he was a point-per-game player, so his talent is not in question. He needs at least another season of Junior with the chance to make the Canadian Junior team and participate in the World Juniors, but he is a very solid prospect in a system that needs help on the blue line.
Rielly is a smooth skater and strong decision-maker in both ends of the ice.
