June 2015- Tobias Rieder was definitely one of the biggest pleasant surprises of 2014-15 season for the Coyotes. He finished the year with 21 points in 72 games, his 13 goals ninth among rookies. An excellent penalty-killer, Rieder's three shorthanded goals were tops among rookies and tied for third in the NHL. A smart two-way player, his 189 shots were fourth among rookies and tied for second on the Coyotes. Rieder's going to be a big part of the rebuild in Arizona. Also for a second year in a row he got to represent Germany in the World Championship, finishing the tournament with three assist in seven games.  Keith Duggan


December 2014- Tobias Rieder created a lot of buzz in a game on 12/2/14 against Edmonton. With the Oilers, the team that drafted him but traded his rights to the Coyotes, on the power play, Rieder scored two shorthanded goals in 58 seconds. He became the first rookie and second player in franchise history to score two shorthanded goals in one game. Keith Duggan


November 2014- While Rieder hasn't tore it up offensively with the Coyotes, two goals and five points in 13 games, he has impressed coach Dave Tippett with his smart, responsible, two-way game. Also he's first on the Coyotes and fifth among rookies in the league with a plus -6 rating, while averaging 14:43 per game. Keith Duggan


November 2014- With the Coyoyes struggling, the team decided to shake things up and recalled Rieder from the AHL on November 2nd. Rieder didn't disappoint, scoring a goal and playing very well in his first ever NHL game, a 6-5 win over the Washington Capitols. With an impressive debut, look for Rieder to spend some more time with the big club, and if he continues to play on the top line with Shane Doan, put some more points on the board.

October 2014- Tobias Rieder had an excellent camp for the Coyotes and looked to have earned an roster spot with the team. But they decided to give the young forward more time to develop in the AHL and assigned him to Portland. After an impressive rookie season, Rieder should have a even better second season in the AHL.

June 2014- It was an impressive rookie pro season for Rieder, finishing the season with 28 goals and 48 points in 64 games for Portland of the AHL. His 28 goals, fifth among rookies in the American League. Along with the goal scoring skill, he showed a strong all around game and proved to be an excellent penalty killer for the Pirates. At the conclusion of his season with no playoff's for Portland, he was chosen to play for Germany in the World Championship, finishing the tournament with one goal in seven games. Keith Duggan


January 2014 – Rieder has had a solid first half to his rookie pro season with 13 goals and 21 points in 34 games for the Portland Pirates. After scoring four goals in three games to start his season (he missed some time with a foot injury in the middle of that scoring streak) he has cooled off but has played a solid two-way game and showed his skill throughout the season for the Pirates. He could earn a call-up to the Coyotes after the Olympics but the more likely scenario is playing out the season for Pirates. Keith Duggan


April 2013 – The Edmonton Oilers moved their 4th round selection in 2011, Tobias Rieder, for Phoenix's 4th round selection, Kale Kessy, adding size to their organizational depth. Rieder joins a Coyotes system that is lacking skilled forward prospects so this move actually boosts Tobias Rieder's fantasy value and opportunity. Rieder is coming off an underwhelming OHL regular season
