History

2008-09: Max Reinhart, a fourth round selection of the Kootenay Ice at thr 2007 WHL Bantam Draft, played in 62 games for the Ice in his WHL rookie season.  He scored 11 goals and added 16 assists for 27 points.  In 4 playoff games for the Ice, Reinhart scored 1 goal.

2009-10: In 72 games for the Ice, Reinhart scored 21 goals and chipped in 30 assists for 51 points.  He finished with a +12 rating for the season.  In 6 playoff games for the Ice, Reinhart scored 1 goal and added 1 assist for 2 points.

2010-11: Reinhart had excellent offensive numbers in his second full season with the Kootenay Ice. He scored 34 goals along with 45 assists and a plus 30 rating while taking 41 PIMs in 71 WHL games. The talented playmaker was one of the offensive threats for this high powered team, second in goals behind Cody Eakin (WAS) and Matt Fraser (DAL), second in points behind Eakin and second in plus/minus ratio to Joe Antilla.  Reinhart contributed to the Ice winning the Ed Chynoweth Cup and a chance at the Memorial Cup while finished third in scoring for the WHL playoffs. He scored 15 goals with 12 assists and a plus 13 rating in 19 playoff games. The skilled centerman scored important goals for his team in big games including a record tying five goals in a game against the Medicine Hat Tigers to advance to the WHL final. The 19-year-old scored a goal with five assists and a minus four rating in five Memorial Cup games. The Kootenay Ice lost in the semi-finals to the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors by a score of 3-1.

2011-12: Reinhart was impressive in Calgary's training camp and at the prospects tournament before suffering an allergic reaction. He made his pro hockey debut in April, scoring two goals for AHL Abbotsford against the Toronto Marlies in his only regular season contest. He played in four of eight playoff games for the Heat; scoring 1 goal with 1 assist and finishing plus-one. Reinhart returned to Kootenay for his fourth junior season following training camp and he and his brother Sam Reinhart were one-two in scoring for the Ice. He led Kootenay with 28 goals and 50 assists in 61 games and was plus-19 with 40 penalty minutes. Kootenay reached the playoffs after finishing fourth in the Central Division. Reinhart had 2 assists with an even plus/minus and 6 penalty minutes in three playoff games.

2012-13: Reinhart made his NHL debut in April and skated in 11 games with the Flames in his first pro season. He scored 1 goal with 2 assists and was -3 with 4 penalty minutes; averaging 14:25 minutes of ice time per game. Reinhart played 67 games for Calgary AHL affiliate Abbotsford. He scored 7 goals with 14 assists and was -26 with 32 penalty minutes. The Heat missed the playoffs after finishing fourth in the North Division.

 

Talent Analysis

Reinhart can play the power play, kills penalties and is a solid two-way player. The playmaking center has good speed with a quick accurate release and sees the ice well but needs add muscle mass to play more physically at the NHL level. The versatile center's excellent hockey smarts and vision should quicken his transition to the professional level. The all-round forward quite easily projects as a top-six forward in the NHL for Calgary.

 

 

Future

Reinhart opens up 2013-14 in Abbotsford for his third season with the Heat. The Flames organization decided to assign Reinhart to the Heat after long consideration for a roster position in Calgary. Reinhart has developed into a NHL-caliber player and will most likely have an opportunity to be called up this season should an opening occur in the lineup.
