Morgan Rielly 1st Pro Goal

After the jump, take in Morgan Rielly’s first pro goal in his first pro appearance during last night’s Marlies-Wolves game (4-3 shootout loss).

It’s tough to tell how he looked in the run of play and in the defensive zone from this footage alone (adjustment period should be expected), as these are just highlights and the video was shot with a potato. I did notice on one of the replays he made a nice diagonal outlet pass across the neutral zone to set up a near-goal. The scoresheet says a goal, four shots on net and a -1.
