Drafted by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the 4th round (98th overall) in 2011.
Mike Reilly will stay in college for 2014-15 | 07/11/2014 9:45 AM
Mike Reilly will return to the University of Minnesota for 2014-15.
Reilly scored nine goals and 33 points in 41 games last season. "It just makes so much sense for me, physically, to stay in college," Reilly said. "It was a tough decision, actually, because turning pro would be exciting and because it was possible. But when I sat down with (Blue Jackets general manager) Jarmo Kekalainen and the coaching staff, and when I talked to the coaches back in Minnesota, we all agreed it was best for me." Reilly has been bulking up to the point where he's 6-foot-1 and 186 pounds, but he plans to get bigger.
