Morgan Rielly has just dropped the biggest bombshell of the summer regarding Auston Matthews' and William Nylander's contract extensions. The news came following a pickup road hockey game that Rielly participated in last night.

Rielly Delivers Great News

Mark Masters of TSN caught up with Rielly following the game to ask the Leafs defenseman a few questions. One of the questions had to do with the ongoing contract negotiations between the Maple Leafs and star forwards Auston Matthews and William Nylander.

"They're going to do their thing. I believe they both want to be here. I believe they'll get done, it'll take care of itself." - Rielly on the Matthews and Nylander extensions

While many Leafs fans are worried about the potential outcome of this ongoing contract saga, Rielly doesn't seem to be too concerned. He knows his teammates, and he's confident they'll get their deals done.

Media Taking Things Too Far?

Masters' interview with Rielly had some fans wondering if he had crossed a line with what is too far. Rielly had clearly partaken in the game for fun, and went to enjoy himself, but instead got borderline harassed by a member of the media.

Where should we draw the line with players? Should they be expected to answer questions regardless of the situation, in season or out of season?
