Michael J. Reilly Jr. (born July 13, 1993) is an American professional ice hockey player currently playing for the Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was originally selected by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the fourth round (98th overall) of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft and previously played in the NHL for the Minnesota Wild and Montreal Canadiens.
Born in Chicago, Reilly grew up in Chanhassen, Minnesota. After attending and playing for the Academy of Holy Angels and Shattuck-St Mary's, Reilly was selected by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. Opting not to sign with the Blue Jackets, he went on to play for the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers. Reilly was named Big Ten Conference Defensive Player of the Year and First Team All-American following both his sophomore and junior seasons.
Rielly became an unrestricted free agent on June 15, 2015, after he was unable to come to terms on a contract with Columbus. On July 1, 2015, he signed a two-year entry level contract with the Minnesota Wild worth $1.85 million, and on January 9, 2016 Reilly made his NHL debut in a 2-1 Minnesota victory over the Dallas Stars. He scored his first NHL goal on February 13, 2016, in a 4-2 loss to the Boston Bruins.
On February 26, 2018, Minnesota traded Reilly to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for a fifth-round pick in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft. He signed a two-year extension with Montreal worth $3 million following the 2018–19 season. On January 2, 2020, Reilly was traded to the Ottawa Senators in exchange for Andrew Sturtz and a fifth-round pick in 2021.
