Max Reinhart was minus-26 when recalled | 04/15/2013 7:20 AM
NewsMax Reinhart, who scored his first NHL goal on Saturday was minus-26 in the AHL when he was recalled a week ago.
ImpactReinhart was third worst in the NHL, a stat that caused Calgary coach Bob Hartley to chuckle when talking to his young center. "The first couple of games (in the NHL), he was feeling his way," Hartley said. "I brought him in and I said `Max, you have to jump. You have to take advantage of this.' I said, `Let's face it, there's not too many kids with a minus-26 rating being called up from the American League,' and he started to laugh. I said, `Never mind this. You're in the NHL. We don't care. We're going to work with you. We're going to teach you, but show passion. Show that you like the game.' So far, he's showing lots of great things to us." Reinhart has a minus-one rating in five NHL games so far.

Coach Hartley happy with Reinhart debut | 04/08/2013 5:02 AM
NewsCalgary coach Bob Hartley was happy with the NHL debut of Max Reinhart Saturday.
ImpactReinhart, the son of NHL veteran Paul who played 11 seasons in the league, was drafted in the third round of the 2009 Draft and played his first game in his hometown of Vancouver. "We want grit in this organization, and he went to the dirty areas," Hartley said. "He fought in the corners. He was great behind the net. For his first game, I was really happy." Reinhart had seven goals and 21 points in 67 AHL games this season, his first as a pro. While he scored in junior hockey, he could be a bottom six forward in the NHL, chipping in with the occasional point.

NewsMax Reinhart made his NHL debut for the Flames in Saturday's 5-2 loss to Vancouver.
ImpactThe rookie skated for over 16 minutes of ice time and registered three shots on goal, but was saddled with a minus-2 rating in the losing effort."Definitely a high to a low," Reinhart said about his first game in the big leagues. "It's obviously not the way you want it to start, but that kind of stuff happens. I had to shake it off and forget it happened." With the Flames now committed to a full-fledged rebuilding effort, look for Reinhart to spend the rest of the season in Calgary.
