1. Morgan Rielly vs Edmonton (February 7th 2015)

This goal right here is a perfect example of Morgan Rielly at his best.

With the play starting in his own zone, he first blocks a shot before picking up the puck, and the rest is history.

After deking past one guy and having enough confidence to pull off a toe drag with three Oilers surrounding him, he gets in tight to Viktor Fasth and roofs it short side to seal the deal.

Despite Rielly’s first few seasons in the NHL being quiet offensively, this goal gave us an idea of what to expect in the coming years.

The skating and puck movement on this goal is incredible, and the toe drag/roof combo is icing on the cake.

Overall, there’s been lots to cheer about and about as much to cry about as a Leafs fan between 2010 and 2019.

Let’s hope that we get more goals like these over the next ten years.
