Today's edition of "Max Reinhart is one of the forward prospects we're most excited about right now" news: in his most recent game against the Moose Jaw Warriors, Reinhart posted the game winning goal on a shorthanded goal, further solidifying his chances at picking up his first Kris Chucko award this post-season
The "official" description of the goal from the Kootenay Ice website:
In the 2nd period the ICE made it 3-0 while shorthanded as Drew Czerwonka fed Max Reinhart near the net and he scored high over the fallen goalie.
The thing that impresses me here isn't just the goal, but it's the implication that while shorthanded Reinhart helped hold the offensive zone with Czerwonka long enough to set up an actual play.
On a related note- can the Flames please trade for prospect LW Drew Czerwonka from the Oilers? The name alone is reason enough.
In other prospect news, Ryan Howse is scoreless in 2 playoff games against the Spokane Chiefs, Michael Ferland has 1A against the Medicine Hat Tigers, Spencer Bennet is scoreless in 2 playoff games against the Tri-City Americans, and Patrick Holland has 1G and 1A against the Vancouver Giants. Given that series has the latter two playing against each other, I'm going to try and catch as much of it as I can.
A more in-depth prospect look will be up later in the week
