Senators' Mike Reilly: Serves as power play scorer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Senators' Mike Reilly: Slings power-play assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Senators' Mike Reilly: Rare two-point effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reilly posted two power-play points and two shots on net across 20:23 in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Ducks.

Reilly notched two points in a game for the first time since October of 2018. He's played every game since being traded from Montreal, and he's recorded six points through 12 games while averaging 19:25 per contest with the Senators.

Senators' Mike Reilly: Records first goal with Ottawa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reilly scored a power-play goal on two shots and had two PIM in Tuesday's 5-2 win over Buffalo.

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. It was not only Reilly's first goal as a Senator, but his first goal since Jan. 23, 2019. He also added an assist for his first multi-point game since Oct. 2018.

Senators' Mike Reilly: Assist for first point with Sens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Senators' Mike Reilly: Dealt to Ottawa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Canadiens' Mike Reilly: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Canadiens' Mike Reilly: Picks up point in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Canadiens' Mike Reilly: Records assist, five SOG in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Canadiens' Mike Reilly: Will be active Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Canadiens' Mike Reilly: Riding pine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Canadiens' Mike Reilly: Notches helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Canadiens' Mike Reilly: Back in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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."

Canadiens' Mike Reilly: Garners assist in season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Canadiens' Mike Reilly: Signs two-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Canadiens' Mike Reilly: Earns qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reilly was given a qualifying offer from the Canadiens, Eric Engels of reports.

Reilly finished the 2018-19 campaign with three goals and 11 points in 57 games but was a healthy scratch for 18 of the team's final 19 games of the season. The 25-year-old Illinois native will likely be in a similar depth role with the team next season.

Canadiens' Mike Reilly: Disappointing finish to 2018-19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reilly finished the year on the outside looking in, as the defenseman dressed only once between Feb. 26 and the end of the season.

Reilly finished 2018-19 with 11 points in 57 games, but near the end of February, he found himself in Claude Julien's doghouse due to his defensive shortcomings. The 25-year-old began the year as a core piece of the Canadiens' blue line, averaging 22:36 of ice time over the first nine games of 2018-19. However, beyond Feb. 25, Reilly appeared in only one game. A restricted free agent this summer, it would seem unlikely that he'll return to Montreal.

Canadiens' Mike Reilly: Notches game-winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reilly scored a goal on two shots along with a minor penalty in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Coyotes.

Reilly's third goal of the season was the game-winner for the Habs, who are 5-1 over their last six games. The 25-year-old blueliner has found a home on the second pair with Jeff Petry, who set up the goal after circling the net and teeing it up for Reilly.

Canadiens' Mike Reilly: Healthy scratch Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reilly was a healthy scratch for Thursday's game against the Blues.

The Blues are a big, physical team, so coach Claude Julien activated the bigger Karl Alzner in place of Reilly, who had made 13 consecutive starts before sitting Thursday. Reilly has just six points in 38 games and last had a point Dec. 9, when he assisted on a goal in a 3-2 win over Chicago.

Canadiens' Mike Reilly: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reilly had five shots, one hit and blocked two shots over 20:42 of ice time in Thursday's 6-4 win over Carolina.

Reilly returned to the lineup, skating on the second pair with Jeff Petry, after being made a healthy scratch in his native state of Minnesota on Tuesday. Fueled by that ignominy, Reilly had his most TOI since Nov. 10, was even in plus-minus, and tied his season high for shots. The duo of Reilly and Petry combined to send 12 shots toward the Hurricanes' Petr Mrazek. Offense is Reilly's game, so it's not surprising to see him contribute at that end of the ice, but whether he remains in the lineup will depend on the caliber of play in his own zone. It was his effort at that end of the sheet earlier in the season that caused a demotion to the third pair and a season-low 9:42 of TOI in the game prior to being scratched in his hometown.
