Reinhart was sent down to Bakersfield of the AHL on Monday. Reinhart was acquired from the Islanders in a draft day trade but hardly distinguished himself this season with one assist in 29 games.

Reinhart was recalled from AHL Bakersfield by the Oilers on Monday. Reinhart was called up in response to Brandon Davidson's lower-body injury sustained Sunday.

The 24-year-old defenseman has notched 11 points in 51 contests with the Oilers this season.
Reinhart was reassigned to AHL Bakersfield on Tuesday, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports. Reinhart had been recalled ahead of the All-Star break, but he only dressed in two of the club's four games during the week. The 22-year-old will head back to the AHL, where he's tallied six points and a plus-1 rating in 17 games.
Reinhart was recalled by the Oilers on Monday. Reinhart and forward Zack Kassian were both sent to the AHL Bakersfield affiliate just before the All-Star break to get in some extra work, but the two were both recalled by the parent club Monday.
