Islanders Return Reinhart to Edmonton (WHL)
First-Round Pick In 2012 Returned To Junior Club

The New York Islanders announced today that defenseman Griffin Reinhart has been returned to his junior club, the Edmonton Oil Kings of the Western Hockey League.

Reinhart, 19, appeared in four exhibition games with the Islanders this preseason, recording two points (one goal and one assist) with a plus-2 rating. The North Vancouver, BC, native remained with the Islanders through the first three games of the regular season, but did not appear in a game.

The Islanders selected Reinhart in the first round, fourth overall, of the 2012 National Hockey League Draft. He scored 29 points (eight goals and 21 assists) in 59 games last year during his third season with Edmonton (WHL) and his first as team captain. Reinhart added seven points (three goals and four assists) in 12 WHL playoff games, before suffering a foot injury in Game 3 of the Conference Finals that forced him to miss the remainder of the postseason.

In 164 career WHL games, Reinhart has 90 points (26 goals and 64 assists) with 109 penalty minutes. He helped Edmonton win the WHL Championship in 2011-12. Reinhart joined the Vancouver Northwest Giants in 2009-10 and captured a B.C. Major Midget League Championship. He first played midget at age 14, leading the Hollyburn Huskies to a provincial title in 2008-09 with 18 points in six playoff games.
