Sam played alongside Max with the WHL’s Kootenay Ice (in 2010-11 and 2011-12) and with Griffin on Team Canada at the 2014 World Junior Championship.

• Reinhart captained Canada’s gold medal-winning teams at both the 2012 Ivan Hlinka Memorial (3-5—8 in five games) and the 2013 Under-18 World Championship (3-4—7 in seven games).

• In his WHL rookie season of 2011-12, Reinhart was the second-leading scorer for Kootenay (28-34—62), earning the WHL’s Rookie of the Year award. In 2012-13, his second full season with the Ice, Reinhart led the team in scoring (35-50—85) and was named to the WHL Second All-Star Team.

• He wears jersey No. 23, the same number that his father wore in the NHL.
