O'Reilly was awarded the Selke Trophy as the league's top defensive forward for the 2018-19 season Wednesday.
Coming off a Stanley Cup and a Conn Smythe-winning campaign, O'Reilly was able to add best defensive forward to his accolades. On top of his 77 points in 82 games, the 28-year-old was a plus-22 with 36 blocked shots this season. Following career highs in plus-minus, assists and points, O'Reilly will hope to follow up a storybook season with the Blues next year.
O'Reilly won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the MVP of the playoffs.
O'Reilly opened the scoring in Wednesday's 4-1 Game 7 victory, and later added an assist on Zach Sanford's insurance tally in the third period. The two-point effort gave O'Reilly eight goals and 23 points in 26 games, tying him for the league lead in postseason points with the Bruins' Brad Marchand. He added 54 shots during the playoffs and accumulated five goals and four helpers in the Stanley Cup Final.
O'Reilly potted a goal on three shots in Sunday's 5-1 loss to the Bruins in Game 6.
O'Reilly has taken his game to another level with four goals and three helpers during a five-game point streak. Throughout the playoffs, the center has produced seven tallies and 21 points in 25 contests.
O'Reilly scored a goal and added a helper in Thursday's 2-1 win over the Bruins in Game 5.
O'Reilly has come to play in the Stanley Cup Finals, with three goals and three helpers over the last five games. The center opened the scoring 55 seconds into the second period Thursday, and then set up a critical insurance goal by David Perron halfway through the third period. With six goals and 20 points in 24 playoff contests, O'Reilly could have an outside chance at the Conn Smythe Trophy.
O'Reilly scored two goals in Monday's 4-2 win over Boston in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals.
After opening the scoring 43 seconds into the first period, O'Reilly waited until midway through the third period to score his second of the night, the eventual game-winner. He now has five goals to go along with 13 assists for a total of 18 points in 23 playoff games in 2018-19.
