2012 Maple Leafs first rounder and No. 5 overall pick Morgan Rielly is in Halifax this week for Games Three and Four of the Canada-Russia challenge, the last two of the four game series designed to honour the 40th anniversary of the 1972 Summit Series. Rielly had an assist in the first game and a goal in the second, but this assist in the third game is a very pretty play.

Rielly intercepts an Anton Slepyshev breakout, dekes around Kirill Kapustin but doesn't have a lot of space or options. He sees Jonathan Huberdeau breaking to the net and fires a pass that eludes both Russian defenders. It really is a thing of beauty.

I'm sure that Brian Burke expects more from the "First Overall" pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft! Can you say Credibility Gap?!?!
