The fax machine is definitely working today, am I right? In a trade with the Calgary Flames for a conditional fourth-round pick in the 2016 NHL Draft, the Predators acquired 23-year-old Max Reinhart, a strapping young forward. Here’s a bit about the young man from the official Preds release:
Reinhart, 23 (2/4/92), has appeared in 23 career NHL games with the Flames over the past three seasons, posting a goal and four assists. Since scoring a pair of goals in his first professional contest with the American Hockey League’s Abbotsford Heat on April 15, 2012, the 6-1, 185-pound center has amassed 125 points (45g-80a) in 203 AHL contests. In 2013-14, his assist total ranked ninth in the AHL (42), while his point total tied for 11th (63).
Reinhart has agreed to a one-year, two-way contract with the Predators worth $575,000 on the NHL level and $80,000 on the AHL level.
