CALGARY - Morgan Rielly will spend Christmas in Russia provided he makes the final roster of Canada’s junior team.

Maple Leafs general manager Brian Burke told TSN on Tuesday that if the NHL lockout ends, Rielly will not be summoned to Toronto for what would be a short Leafs training camp.

All indications are that Rielly, the fifth pick overall by the Leafs in the NHL entry draft in June, will be an important part of Canada’s blue line. The swift-skating defenceman has 28 points in 33 games for the Moose Jaw Warriors of the Western Hockey League.

He will be paired with Dougie Hamilton, a Boston Bruins first-round pick, for the Red/White game.
