Observations:

 

April 2014 - Max clearly had an off year in 2012-13, possibly a funk induced as a result of being demoted to the AHL, or maybe because the Flames prospect was a rookie? Regardless he made up for it in 2013-14 where he netted 63 points (21 goals) in 66 games for the Heat and chipped in with two assists in eight NHL games with the Flames. His 63 AHL points was good for 12th in the league. Reinhart could certainly fill a top-6 spot in Calgary but with so many young prospects fighting for spots on the 2014-15 rebuilding Flames roster, it is unclear where he will shake out. Assuming the Flames want Max in the top six rather than the bottom six, he will have his work cut out for him in order to make the NHL in October. Depending on what happens over the next four months, I could see the Flames in more of a "top nine-bottom three" situation than the coveted six skill guys and six plumbers outlook. The tools are definitely there to fit in where ever he is positioned as he is a dependable penalty killer and solid two way player with oodles of hockey sense. Brad Wilson

 

August, 2013 – Max Reinhart endured an uninspired offensive display during the 2012-13 season in an 11-game stint with Calgary, and also in the AHL, which is more concerning. In 67 games in Abbotsford he scored just 7 goals and 14 assists and had an eye opening minus-26 rating. With the Flames, he notched one goal and three assists and was minus-3. While his two brothers are considered elite talents (Griffin was chosen 4th overall by the Islanders and Sam may be chosen first in the 2014 draft), Max may have to embrace a defensive role to have a chance to stay in Calgary this coming season.  Sheldon Curtis.

January 2013 – He has struggled in his transition to pro and leads the Abbotsford Heat with a minus 11 in 31 appearances. Offence has not come yet, but that is not unexpected at this point. Reinhart still has a good outlook for growth in his game.  Jason Banks


April 2012 – Reinhart finished a solid season in Kootenay, which will most likely be his last junior campaign. He netted 78 points in 61 games. He put on a lot of weight and played very responsible defensively, a sure sign that he is ready to play in the pros. Although his Kootenay Ice were unable to defend their WHL Championship, Reinhart got a call from the Abbotsford Heat and he’ll join the club for their playoff run. - Zenon Herasymiuk

 

December, 2011 – The eldest of a burgeoning trio of brothers set to take the NHL by storm within the next three years, Max Reinhart has managed to carve himself out of a chunk of notoriety before siblings Sam and Griffin can steal it away. A 3rd round selection- likely the lowest we’ll see a Reinhart drafted- the 6’0 170 lbs center has established himself as the Kootenay Ice’s premier offensive talent. Reinhart’s ability to dissect defenses on the fly almost earned him a spot on Team Canada- and should, with another off-season of physical development, help him make as strong a case in Flames camp next fall. - Matt Bugg

 

Fantasy Outlook: B-

A solid two-way player with top-6 upside. He can kill penalties and plays well on both sides of the puck.
