• He is the son of former NHL defenseman, Paul Reinhart, who played 648 games with the Vancouver Canucks and Calgary Flames.

Both Sam and Max play for the Kootenay Ice (WHL).

• An old broadcast of a Flames-Oilers game from the 1988 Stanley Cup Playoffs showed Reinhart that he and his father have a very similar style of play – “I had never seen him play until then and, just seeing a glimpse of him, it’s pretty amazing how much we play alike.”

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
