    Update: He’s surpassed it.



    With his 12th point in 5 games, Morgan Rielly has passed Bobby Orr for the best start offensively by an NHL defenseman through his first five games.

    [Mod] According to the NHL, the record is actually 15 points in 5 games by Harry Cameron, of the Toronto Arenas, with 9g 6a for 15 pts in 1917-1918 season.

    Bobby Orr was second with 11pts in 5 games, which was broken by Rielly tonight. A historical start for the young Toronto D.

    The Modern era for the NHL is considered post-World War II.

    Incredible, he’s always been underrated. Obviously not Bobby Orr but he’s a great player

    BTW, he's #1 in scoring and he plays horribly tough defensive minutes.
    He's without a doubt a true #1 D.

    absolutely incredible start. 11pts in 4 games and a period...

    how long until someone comes and says "does this really deserve a thread?"

    Anyone who watched him last year knew how good he was. Only 2 other guys produced 50+ points and 95+ percentile QoC, Doughty and Hedman. He was in elite company but somehow HF always told us Dumba was better lol.

    Rielly is an elite dman. Glad you and so many others have proven to be right

    Exactly. Made no sense. Guy also drags around Rob Hainsey’s corpse around playing against McDavid, Seguin, etc best of the best night after night. He’s insane

    Rielly is the one “I told you so!” Leafs fans should point at anytime anyone says a Leaf is overrated. I saw people say Dumba, Barrie , Ristolainen (this was especially insulting), Muzzin, and other 2nd pairing guys are better than Rielly.

    What a start. Have to assume that he will beat his previous total for points this season.
