Leafs Links: Morgan Rielly to Make NHL Debut

So how's it goin'? - USA TODAY Sports

Morgan Rielly will make his NHL debut tonight during the Leafs' home opener against the Ottawa Senators. Puck drops at 7 PM! The Leafs have recalled Spencer Abbott, another rookie hoping to make his NHL debut, so it'll be interesting to see if he draws into the lineup as well. It'll also be interesting to see who gets tonight's start in net, given that both Reimer and Bernier have played really well in their season openers. Hockey!

But for now: Links!
