2009-10: Mike Reilly played for the Academy of Holy Angels (MN), scoring 4 goals and adding 29 assists for 33 points in 24 games. In 2 playoff games, Reilly scored 3 goals and added 2 assists for 5 points.
2010-11: Reilly played for Shattuck St. Mary's prep school, scoring 14 goals and adding 34 assists for 48 points in 54 games.
2011-12: Reilly played for the BCHL’s Penticton Vees and had a breakout year with 83 points (59 assists) in 51 games. In the playoffs, he settled in defensively and only tallied eight points. He played for the US national U-19 team in the World Junior A Challenge and had an assist in five games.
Reilly is a great puck moving defenseman with good vision and a strong shot. His biggest improvements need to be on the defensive side of the game, starting with his positioning but that should come with maturity.
Reilly will be playing for the University of Minnesota next season. If he can offensively dominate the NCAA the same way he did the BCHL, Reilly could turn into a player scouts will talk about for years.
