Maple Leafs 2012 first round pick Morgan Rielly was named the WHL Eastern Conference Defenceman Of The Year and he was named to the WHL Eastern Conference First All-Star team on Wednesday.

Rielly finished his third WHL season with 54 points (12 goals, 42 assists) in 60 games. While Rielly’s season with the Moose Jaw Warriors has come to an end, he will be joining the Toronto Marlies this week to get his feet wet in the pro game.

The offensive blueliner also played for Team Canada at the World Junior Championships where he had three points in six games with a plus 2 rating.”
