  • Golden Knights' Griffin Reinhart: Hits waiver wire

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/29/17) Reinhart was placed on waivers Sunday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Once a highly touted prospect after being selected fourth overall in the 2012 NHL Draft, Reinhart has lost some of his shine and hasn't played in the NHL since 2016. That being said, Reinhart is just 23 years old and has a salary cap hit of $800,000, so it wouldn't be surprising if another organization claimed the blueliner.

    Golden Knights' Griffin Reinhart: Shuffles to minors

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/27/17) Reinhart was added to AHL Chicago's roster via the Golden Knights on Friday. According to Bob McKenzie of TSN, the defenseman will be on a conditioning stint.

    Vegas made a point to add a surplus of defensemen in the expansion draft, which was a smart move given how that's generally considered one of the tougher positions to stock. Reinhart actually hasn't played in an NHL game since 2015-16 -- when he was with the Oilers -- so fantasy owners should view him as little more than an organizational depth option at this juncture.

    Golden Knights' Griffin Reinhart: Notches preseason assist

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/25/17) Reinhart recorded one assist in a 4-2 preseason loss to Anaheim on Sunday.

    The youngster not only provided a primary assist in the second period, but also recorded two shots on goal, one blocked shot, and one takeaway. Reinhart only facilitated one assist in 29 games last season, so getting a point is an encouraging sign -- even if it was a preseason game. Reinhart will likely be given a third-line role in Las Vegas during the 2017-18 season.

    Golden Knights' Griffin Reinhart: Signs two-year deal with Vegas

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/15/17) Reinhart signed a two-year contract with the Golden Knights on Saturday. The deal is worth $800,000 annually.

    It's officially a clean slate for Reinhart, who quickly fell out of favor with the Islanders, but was picked up by Vegas in the expansion draft. Originally selected fourth overall by the Isles in 2012, the defenseman went on to produce a mere two points with a minus-5 rating over 37 games. With respect to the pressure cooker of the NHL, look for head coach Gerard Gallant to shield him from a role that doesn't mesh with his natural skill set. Reinhart can be an imposing presence from the back line, but expecting a ton of minutes right out of the gate probably isn't realistic.

    Golden Knights' Griffin Reinhart: Shipping out to Vegas

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/21/17) Reinhart has been selected by the Vegas Golden Knights in the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft, John Shannon of Sportsnet reports.

    A colossal bust over the course of his brief NHL career, Reinhart will get a fresh start in Vegas. Selected fourth overall by the Islanders in the 2012 Entry Draft, Reinhart was eventually traded to Edmonton for a draft pick that the Isles used to select top prospect Mathew Barzal. It's a trade that the Oilers' brass could regret for years to come. As for Reinhart, he has no goals and two assists in 37 career NHL games. His defensive play is erratic, and he's shown below-average puck skills. While he's young enough at 23 that it makes sense for Vegas to take a chance on him, fantasy owners shouldn't expect much.
