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.
Fantasy Outlook: B+
Lots of upside and had a good camp in 2011. The Flames need his skill set, which bodes well for his chances.
Reinhart looking good in Under 17 play:
