Rehill scored 1 goal with 3 assists and 24 penalty minutes in 12 games with the Alberta Midget Hockey League’s MLAC Maple Leafs. In 18 games for the SSAC midget AA team he scored 6 goals with 12 assists and 70 penalty minutes.
2012-13: Rehill was third on Kamlooops with 104 penalty minutes while playing in 46 of 72 games for the Blazers in his first WHL season. He had 3 assists and was plus-9 on one of the league’s top teams. The Blazers finished second in the B.C. Division and reached the Western Conference finals. Rehill was minus-2 with no points and 8 penalty minutes in nine playoff games.
2013-14: Rehill displayed some offensive elements to go with his toughness in his second WHL season in a forgettable season for Kamloops. One of two Blazers to play in all 72 games, his 20 points were second to Josh Connolly (45) amongst Kamloops defensemen. He had 4 goals with 16 assists and was minus-4; leading the Blazers with 187 penalty minutes. Kamloops finished last in the B.C. Division with the WHL’s third-worst record. Rehill was ranked 76th amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting’s final rankings and was selected by New Jersey in the fifth round (131st overall) of the 2014 NHL Draft.
Rehill is a stay-at-home defenseman that is reasonably mobile and has a good shot from the point. He sticks up for his teammates and tries to intimidate the opposition with his physical nature. It is unknown how mobile he may become, but there is no questioning his character, leadership, and work ethic.
Rehill attended rookie development and training camp with New Jersey before being returned to Kamloops for the 2014-15 season. One of three defensemen in the WHL to top 80 minutes in penalties in the season's first 30 games, he continues to play a hard style and make things tough on opposing forwards. Offensively he is chipping in with an occasional assist but at this point his calling card at the pro level will be his defending and physical play.
