Morgan Rielly usually plays his cards close to the chest.

Ask the Maple Leafs prospect and Canadian junior about his beloved dog and he lays them on the table.

"I love my dog," Rielly said with a big smile. "I'm a huge animal guy. There are times when I'm in Moose Jaw and I miss her, and I'll ask my mom to send me pictures. I have a whole bunch on my iPhone now."
