For those only getting a little familiar with Max Reinhart this season you’re probably unaware of just how big the Reinhart name is in the game of hockey. His father, Paul Reinhart, had an extraordinary NHL career as a member of the Flames and Canucks organizations that spanned eleven seasons. Max also happens to be the oldest of two other brothers who are in the NHL. Griffin Reinhart was drafted fourth overall in the 2012 NHL Draft by the New York Islanders and is now playing for the Edmonton Oilers. Sam Reinhart was selected second overall in the 2014 NHL Draft by the Buffalo Sabres where he has 34 points (19 goals, 15 assists) in 67 games during his first full-season of professional hockey.
Although he hasn’t had the chance to do so as a member of the Nashville Predators this season Max also joins his family with games of NHL experience. He played 23 games with the Calgary Flames and was able to score his first career NHL goal in his fifth career game in Edmonton on 4/13/13. As you’d expect, he scored that goal with his family in attendance (video).
Reinhart’s season to date with the Admirals has been solid. He has been one of the most reliable and consistent all-around forwards the team has had in the 2015-16 season and he’s pushed to play in all game situations. He has 31 points (19 goals, 12 assists) in 59 games. His 19 goals and plus/minus rating of +13 are the best on the team. He has had four multi-goal games this season including the first hat tricks of his professional playing career.
A big thank you to Max Reinhart for taking the time to do this interview. Also, cheers to Stefan Elliott for the fun cameo appearance! This week Fifteen will be published two more times: Cody Bass (Wednesday) and Patrick Mullen (Thursday).
