O'Reilly Return



When the Toronto Maple Leafs originally acquired Veteran Ryan O'Reilly in March, it was thought of as a short-term rental to help the team through the post-season. New General Manager Brad Treliving is however open to the return of the 32 year old forward.

TSN analyst Pierre LeBrun further supported this point by say:

What's happening is new Maple Leafs GM Brad Treliving has communicated to O'Reilly's camp that they have interest in bringing him back. O'Reilly has not closed the door on Toronto, but I would say in general is O'Reilly has really left all the options on the table as he approaches the unrestricted free agency market. So yes, the Leafs are an option, but he would also be arguably the No. 1 centre on an otherwise weak UFA centre market.




Look Ahead to Next Season



While nothing is set in stone, keeping O'Reilly would help the Leafs in more ways than one. On top of putting together 20 points in 24 games with the Maple Leafs, O'Reilly brings valuable leadership in the locker room and playoff experience and a winning presence.
