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

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

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
