Kootenay Ice centre Sam Reinhart was on Oilers Now with Edmonton Oilers Colour Analyst Bob Stauffer on Thursday and he was asked who he models his game after.
Reinhart, one of the draft’s top prospects, said it was Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks.
“I think it’s hard to compare yourself to any guy in the National Hockey League,” Reinhart said. “I think for a guy my age to look up to one of the better players in the league and to see what he’s done, a guy like Jonathan Toews, he’s so smart on both ends of the rink, he does everything the right way. The last year or two I’ve been watching him very closely and learning a lot from the little things he does in the game.”
