Rieder, 27, spent the entire 2019-20 NHL season with the Calgary Flames, where he amassed 10 points (four goals, six assists) in 55 games.
A neat tidbit about the career of Tobias Rieder - in December 2014, Rieder set a NHL record by a first year player by scoring two short-handed goals 58 seconds apart during the same penalty kill.
Most recently, Rieder scored three shorthanded goals during the 2019-20 Stanley Cup Playoffs, tied for most short-handed goals in one playoff season.
