Where are they now - Kevin Reinholt

During the 2003-2004 Memorial Cup winning season, the Kelowna Rockets iced a team with three 16 year-old's. Kevin Reinholt (pictured right) was joined by Kyle Cumiskey and Brent Howarth.
Reinholt was the Rockets first round pick from the 2002 WHL bantam draft. Call it bad timing, but Reinholt entered his rookie season in the WHL playing on a solid d-core that included the likes of Josh Gorges, Shea Weber, Brett Palin, Mike Card and Darren Deschamps.
Reinholt would play just 32 games that season and none in the playoffs or the Memorial Cup. The lack of playing time that year may have stunted his growth as a player.
The Toefield Alberta product would win a Memorial Cup title in his first of three seasons with the Rockets before eventually being traded to the Calgary Hitmen in the 2006-07 season.
Now 27, Reinholt is living in Sherwood Park, Alberta where he is a project manager in the construction industry. Reinholt is due to marry his fiance Anna on September 27th. While no longer playing the game of hockey, Reinholt tells me he plays competitive softball and big game hunts in his spare time.
