With Reilly on the shelf, Braydon Coburn will draw into the lineup against the Flames on Thursday. Reilly, who's picked up eight helpers through 24 games this campaign, will be reevaluated ahead of Sunday's game versus Calgary.
Reilly generated an assist Tuesday in a 3-1 loss to the Canadiens.
The Chicago native has eight helpers working against a minus-5 rating through 24 games. On Tuesday, he synched up with a pair of rookies -- forward phenom Drake Batherson and goal-scoring defenseman Artyom Zub -- for Ottawa's lone tally of the night.
Reilly notched a power-play assist, three shots on goal and two PIM in Sunday's 8-5 loss to the Oilers.
Reilly served in a top-pairing capacity with Thomas Chabot (lower body) unavailable Sunday. That also led to Reilly seeing time on the first power-play unit, where he set up Drake Batherson's first-period tally. The 27-year-old Reilly has done alright on the scoresheet with four assists in eight contests, but he carries an ugly minus-10 rating. The Illinois native could have some DFS appeal while Chabot is sidelined, but Reilly is probably best left off of season-long rosters in most formats.
Reilly posted an assist, four shots on goal and a minus-3 rating in Monday's 7-1 loss to the Canucks.
Reilly has picked up helpers in each of the last two games, giving him three in five appearances overall. The 27-year-old defenseman has struggled defensively with a minus-4 rating and only five blocked shots so far. Reilly probably isn't going to score enough to earn much interest from fantasy managers.
Reilly posted an assist, two hits and two PIM in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Jets.
Reilly earned the secondary helper on Nick Paul's tally in the second period. The assist is Reilly's second through four appearances this season. The 27-year-old has added four hits, five blocked shots and a minus-1 rating. He had 16 points in 44 appearances between the Senators and the Canadiens last year, but Reilly typically is only a low-end scorer with little else to elevate him to fantasy relevance.
Reilly notched nine of his 12 points this season with the man advantage.
Interestingly, Reilly's final two points before the league suspended play came without the man advantage. But besides that, he was almost strictly a power-play performer for the Senators this season. Given that his production came in just 30 games, however, he sometimes makes for an intriguing option in daily formats when he's confirmed to be suiting up.
Reilly posted a power-play helper and four blocked shots in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.
Reilly has racked up nine points in 22 appearances since joining the Senators via trade from the Canadiens. For the season, he's at 13 points, 66 shots, 36 blocks and a minus-6 rating in 36 contests between the two teams. With the Senators, he's become a key part of their power-play, where he's earned eight of his nine points.
Reilly posted two power-play points and two shots on net across 20:23 in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Ducks.

Reilly, playing in his ninth game since being acquired from Montreal, absolutely hammered a one-timer past Buffalo goalie Linus Ullmark to put Ottawa ahead 3-2 midway through the third period.

Reilly earned a power-play assist and fired two shots on goal in Friday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Red Wings.
Reilly has played in three games since being traded from the Canadiens on Jan. 2, and he now has his first point in a Senators sweater. The defenseman has just five helpers, 29 shots, 16 blocked shots and 14 hits through 17 appearances overall this season. He should see a regular role with his new team -- he skated a season-high 22:54 on Friday while working on the second pairing.
The Canadiens dished Reilly to the Senators on Thursday in exchange for Andrew Sturtz and a 2021 fifth-round selection, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Reilly racked up four assists over just 14 games played with the Canadiens this year. With the Senators banged up on the back end, Reilly should provide some depth and will aim for a better run following the change of scenery.
Reilly had one shot on goal and was plus-1 over 10:59 of ice time in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Canucks.
Reilly had been a healthy scratch the previous eight games. The Canadiens had been getting by with Otto Leskinen on the third pair, but he was sent back to AHL Laval ahead of the team's four-game road trip through Western Canada. Reilly got the call over Christian Folin, who hasn't played an NHL game since Oct. 19. With Victor Mete (ankle) on the trip and nearing a return, Reilly's appearance in the active lineup is expected to be a short one. He has four assists, 19 shots on goal, 11 hits, 11 blocked shots and four PIM over 12 contests.
Reilly had an assist, three shots, one hit, one block and a minor penalty while finishing plus-1 in Thursday's 6-4 loss to the Devils.
On a night when Montreal's blueliners gave up multiple odd-man rushes, Reilly acquitted himself well. He set up Montreal's fourth goal, showing patience and vision while circling the net before finding Artturi Lehkonen's stick trough traffic. It was the second assist in the last three games for Reilly. After a six-game run as a healthy scratch, Reilly has been in the active lineup the last three games and received ice time on the power play.
Reilly had an assist, five shots and one hit in Saturday's 6-5 loss to the Rangers.
Reilly was active for the first time in seven games, replacing Brett Kulak, and had a season-high 16:55 of ice time, which included 5:58 of ice time on the first power-play unit. He provides a greater offensive element than Kulak, which can be seen in his shots and head coach Claude Julien's decision to have him on the power play, but it's unclear if Reilly will continue to be a regular starter.
Reilly is expected to be active for Saturday's game against the Rangers, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.
Reilly, who has been a healthy scratch the last six games, will step in for Brett Kulak on the third defensive pairing. More significantly, he skated on the second power-play unit during Friday's practice. The loss of Jonathan Drouin (wrist) removes an element from the Canadiens' power play, so head coach Claude Julien is looking for the offensive-minded Reilly as a replacement on the man-advantage unit. Julien has swapped these two defensemen based on what is needed for a particular matchup. "It depends on teams we're playing. Depending on certain teams that are really aggressive, physical, this is where Kuly will outweigh Reils. Right now, we lose a guy like Jonathan Drouin, who on the power play is a big loss. We may need Reils to step in there and see what he can do in that position because he is good with the puck and that's why you saw him today on the power play," said the coach. Reilly has two assists and is plus-1 through eight games.
Reilly was a healthy scratch for the sixth straight game Wednesday against the Senators.
Reilly (eight games played) has been in and out of favor to start the 2019-20 season, sharing a starting job with Brett Kulak (14 games) on the third defensive pairing. The Canadiens like Reilly's ability to support an offensive attack, but lapses in his own zone have prevented him from holding down a full-time job. That can be an issue when playing on the third pairing, which traditionally has been the domain of defensively consistent players who don't often turn the puck over.
Reilly produced an assist and two hits in Thursday's 5-4 overtime win over the Golden Knights.
Reilly has done alright offensively, with three assists in five appearances this season. He's added seven blocked shots and five hits, but the defenseman isn't known for being overly physical. Reilly seems destined to share time on the third pairing with Brett Kulak, with neither player really doing enough to earn fantasy attention.
Reilly had an assist, two shots, one hit and one blocked shot in Saturday's 5-2 win over Montreal.
Reilly drew back into the lineup after being a healthy scratch for six straight games, replacing Brett Kulak. After Montreal won an offensive-zone draw, his slapshot rebounded to Tomas Tatar who set up Brendan Gallagher for the game's opening goal. He has an assist in two of the three games played, but work in his own end has prevented him from having a larger role with the Canadiens. As an indication of that, Reilly was unable to corral a loose puck in the corner, which led to Toronto's first goal with just 16 seconds left in the first period. It marked the third straight period in which Montreal had allowed a goal in the final minute of play. While head coach Claude Julien praised Reilly's play following the game, per Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette, the coach also expressed his displeasure about the late goals. "That's the next thing we have to fix," Julien told the Gazette. "No matter what it is, I don't like it. I know we've given up 40 per cent of our goals in the first and last two minutes of a period. If you look at tonight's goal, the puck was rimming around the boards, there was no pressure, but it hit Mike Reilly's skate and came loose. It started from there with guys out of position. For me, it's finishing stronger."
Reilly had an assist, one hit and one blocked shot while finishing plus-2 over 14:09 of ice time in Wednesday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Sabres.
Reilly made his season debut Wednesday along with Christian Folin on the third pair, replacing Cale Fleury and Brett Kulak. That may have been due to the 40 shots per game opponents had over the Canadiens' first two games. The move seems to have worked as Montreal allowed just 25 on Wednesday.
Reilly agreed to terms on a two-year, $3 million contract with Montreal on Wednesday.
Reilly found himself watching from the press box periodically last season as a healthy scratch. When in the lineup, the Chicago native notched three goals and 11 points, both career highs. The blueliner's ceiling is likely in the 15-20 point range, which limits his fantasy value in all but the deepest of formats.
