Morgan Rielly is thankful that he played one game before the NHL paused the 2019-20 season.
Rielly missed eight weeks with a broken foot and he just happened to come back one game before the start of the pause. "It was certainly a long process of trying to heal, trying to keep yourself in shape during the injury of a broken foot," he said. "Eight weeks goes by, you're trying to work hard to just get back. And then to come back and play one game, it's certainly not ideal. But in that same breath, I think that if I hadn't come back and played that one game and still hadn't played that one game since Jan. 12, I think it would have made it worse." The 26-year-old has three goals and 27points in 47 games this season. Apr 03 12:53 am (EST)
