Reinhart Dealt To Oilers In Draft Night Deal

News: Griffin Reinhart was traded to Edmonton on Friday in exchange for the 16th and 33rd overall picks in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.
Analysis: Griffin Reinhart returns to the city where he played his junior hockey. Reinhart played eight regular season games and one playoff game for the Islanders last season and he didn't look very good, yet the Oilers need help on defense so badly that they took a chance on him. Looking at the Oilers' current depth chart, both Reinhart and Darnell Nurse will probably be playing in the NHL next season. Reinhart has limited offensive ability and he doesn't figure to offer much fantasy value.

Reinhart Expected To Play Game 5 For Islanders

News: Griffin Reinhart is expected to play in Game 5 versus Washington on Thursday, reports Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: The Islanders will be down two starting defensemen in Travis Hamonic (knee) and Lubomir Visnovsky (concussion), so someone will have to step and play, and Griffin Reinhart was chosen over Ryan Pulock. Reinhart will have to shake off some nerves early, but the team will more than likely keep his shifts short, depending on how the game progresses. He's the Isles' top defensive prospect, but throwing Reinhart into a pivotal Game 5 is not ideal.

Isles' Reinhart Recalled From AHL Bridgeport

News: Griffin Reinhart was recalled from AHL Bridgeport on Sunday, Newsday's Arthur Staple reports.
Analysis: The 21-year-old Griffin Reinhart has one point in eight career NHL appearances, all of which came during the ongoing season. While the former No. 4 overall selection is still a big part of the Isles' future plans, he probably won't be in the lineup when the playoffs begin.

Isles Reassign Reinhart

News: Griffin Reinhart was reassigned to AHL Bridgeport on Wednesday.
Analysis: Griffin Reinhart's return to the minors signals that the Islanders expect at least one of Johnny Boychuk (upper body) or Travis Hamonic (upper body) to return to the lineup for the team's next game Friday in Detroit. The 20-year-old Reinhart has one point and accrued six penalty minutes over his eight games with the Islanders this season.

Isles' Reinhart A Healthy Scratch Thursday

News: Griffin Reinhart was a healthy scratch Thursday versus the Blues, according to the Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: This is another curious move by Islanders coach Jack Capuano as he stated the Griffin Reinhart has played well but wants and experienced defender to play against the Blues. Why is it curious? Well the defender that takes the place of Reinhart is Matt Donovan, he who has played all of 60 games in the NHL. Perhaps my definition of experienced is different from his.

First NHL Point For Isles' Reinhart

News: Griffin Reinhart collected his first NHL point in Tuesday's loss to the Wild, assisting on Michael Grabner's game-opening goal.
Analysis: It took the 20-year-old six NHL games to find the scoresheet, and he's not likely to do so very often as long as the Isles keep limiting his ice time so much. He skated just 12:51 on 17 shifts Tuesday, which is pretty much in line with the highly limited ice time he's seen thus far.

Isles' Reinhart Expected To Play Thursday

News: Griffin Reinhart is expected to play Thursday versus the Senators, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: The Isles are down at least two defenseman with Johnny Boychuk (upper body) and Lubomir Visnovsky (upper body) definitely out Thursday and possibly three as Travis Hamonic is also banged up. Griffin Reinhart will stay with the team and play until at least two of these players return.

Isles Recall Reinhart

News: Griffin Reinhart was recalled from AHL Bridgeport on Wednesday, ESPN.com's Katie Strang reports.
Analysis: The Islanders placed Lubomir Visnovsky and Johnny Boychuk on IR with upper-body ailments Wednesday, creating a void defensively. Enter Griffin Reinhart, who was held scoreless in three games with the Islanders earlier this season but has been able to rack up eight points in 15 contests with Bridgeport.

Isles Send Reinhart To AHL

News: Griffin Reinhart was reassigned to AHL Bridgeport on Thursday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: With Calvin de Haan recovered from the upper-body injury that resulted in his placement on injured reserve to begin the season, Griffin Reinhart will forfeit his job on the Islanders' third pairing. The former fourth overall draft choice was held without a point and turned in a minus-1 rating in his three games with the Islanders.

Isles' Reinhart Could Be On His Way To The AHL

News: Griffin Reinhart could be sent down to the AHL as soon as Thursday.
Analysis: Griffin Reinhart is still getting used to playing at the NHL level and has been caught flat footed by the speed of opposing teams more than once. With Calvin de Haan just about ready to return to the Islanders lineup, Reinhart could be the odd man out.

Isles' Reinhart Cracks Opening Night Roster

News: Griffin Reinhart has made the Islanders' Opening Night roster reports.
Analysis: Though the Islanders added Johnny Boychuk and Nick Leddy their blue line over the weekend, the placements of Matt Carkner, Calvin de Haan and Lubomir Visnovsky on injured reserve left one spot open for Griffin Reinhart on defense. Reinhart is expected to see play primarily on the third pairing with Brian Strait, while also seeing some time on the Isles' second power-play unit.

Isles' Reinhart Still With Team

News: Griffin Reinhart is still with the Islanders, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: His stay may be short lived however. The Islanders have a ton on injuries to their defense right now. Matt Carkner and Calvin de Haan were placed on IR on Monday and Lubomir Visnovsky and Ryan Pulock are day to day with minor injuries. If Visnovsky or Pulock is ready to play Friday, then Griffin Reinhart is likely to be sent to Bridgeport of the AHL.

Isles' Reinhart Likely To Begin Season In Minors

News: Griffin Reinhart is likely to begin the season in the minors, according to Newsday.
Analysis: Griffin Reinhart had a good shot at making the team before the additions of Johnny Boychuk and Nick Leddy on Saturday. He is still the Islanders' top defensive prospect, but barring injuries, is unlikely to make his NHL debut until 2015.

Isles' Reinhart Wins WHL Championship Series MVP

News: Griffin Reinhart was named MVP of the WHL Championship Series, according to the Islanders' official site.
Analysis: The superbly talented Griffin Reinhart was the fourth overall pick in the 2012 draft and could be up with the Islanders as soon as next season. The two-way defender tallied a disappointing 21 points in 45 games during the regular season, but stepped it up with 13 points in 21 playoff games.

Isles Send Reinhart Back To Juniors

News: The Islanders sent Griffin Reinhart back to WHL Edmonton on Wednesday, Aaron Vickers of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Griffin Reinhart was eligible to return to the WHL as long as he didn't play more than nine games with the Islanders, so he was at least expected to get look for a few games. It's surprising that the Isles would send down the fourth overall pick from the 2012 draft without even putting him in the lineup for a game first, but they did. Either way, fantasy owners will need to wait another year before they get to see what Reinhart can do at the NHL level.

Reinhart To Open Season With Islanders

News: Griffin Reinhart has earned a spot with the Islanders, according to Newsday.
Analysis: Griffin Reinhart can still be sent down to junior if he doesn't play more than nine games, so this is more than likely just a tryout unless he gives the Isles no choice but to keep him. The team is short a defenseman right now, as Travis Hamonic is out with a concussion, so Reinhart could just be insurance in case Hamonic is unable to go in the opener Friday.

Isles' Reinhart Turning Heads

News: Griffin Reinhart has been turning heads in training camp, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: What once seemed like a foregone conclusion at the beginning of camp, that Griffin Reinhart would be sent back to his junior team, now is up in the air. Problem for Reinhart is the Islanders are loaded with bottom pair d-men who have NHL contracts, so he might have to wait until one or two go down with injuries before getting his chance to play.

Isles' Reinhart Not Expected To Make Team

News: Griffin Reinhart is not expected to make the team out of training camp, according to the Islanders Point Blank.
Analysis: Griffin Reinhart is caught in a numbers game. The Islanders have seven d-men under contract and unless a few of them get hurt, Reinhart would seem to be ticketed once again to begin the season in junior as he can't even play for AHL/ECHL until he reaches the age of 20.

Isles' Reinhart Sent Down To Junior

News: Griffin Reinhart was sent down to Junior by the Islanders on Thursday, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Even though the Isles have more holes on defense than a fridge full of Swiss cheese, they aren't going to rush their top pick in the 12 draft. Like Ryan Strome also though, there really is no reason to start his entry level contract in a shortened season with the club not close to being a cup contender.

Reinhart To Report To Camp With The Islanders

News: Griffin Reinhart will attend training camp with the Islanders, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: No matter how good a camp Griffin Reinhart has, it is unlikely that he would start the season with the Islanders. That could change however with a great camp and if Lubomir Visnovsky doesn't report and Travis Hamonic doesn't get cleared after suffering a concussion during the lockout.
