RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Reinhart was the Islanders' 1st-round pick in the 2012 draft and had eight goals and 29 points in the WHL last season. Reinhart has had to defend some hits against his reputation as a soft player but he still projects as a possible top-four defenseman, but won't play on Long Island this season.
The fourth pick in this past June's draft, Reinhart has the size to play in the NHL immediately, but more than likely will spend a majority of the season getting accustomed to the pro game. That being said, the Islanders haven't been against starting their top picks immediately, and there is a need for young, solid, two-way defensemen on Long Island. Reinhart has some offensive upside, as he notched 36 points in 58 games with Edmonton of the Western Hockey League last season.
