TORONTO - Morgan Rielly is staying with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Coach Randy Carlyle said today that the 19-year-old defenceman won't be returned to the Moose Jaw Warriors of the Western Hockey League after he plays his ninth game with the Leafs.

A junior-eligible player is allowed to play up to nine games without his NHL team burning a year of his entry-level contract. Rielly will play his ninth game on Friday in Columbus.

Rielly has four assists, a minus-3 rating and two penalty minutes in eight games this season.

He was drafted fifth overall by Toronto in the 2012 draft.
