Ryan Reaves, on the Ridly Greig empty-net slapshot: "If you rewind to when I came into the league he's probably still laying on the ice. I thought (Morgan Rielly's response) was appropriate. I don't see how a kid that young thinks it's appropriate to do something like that."




We are still waiting to see what the Department of Player Safety decides will be the punishment for Rielly, however, the in-person hearing suggests it could be over 5 games.

We will see what the discussion turns too if Rielly is given more than 5 for his actions.
