Reinprecht began his junior career in the 1993-94 season with the SSAC Athletics U18 AAA of the AMHL. In this season, he won the Warwick Trophy for the AMHL's MVP.
In 1996 - 2000, he played with the Univ. of Wisconsin of the NCAA. In the 1997-98 season, he became the NCAA (WCHA) champion and made it into the NCAA (WCHA) Second All-Star Team. In the 1999-00 season, he was selected the NCAA (WCHA) Player of the Year, made it into the NCAA (WCHA) First All-Star Team and into the NCAA (West) First All-American Team.
Steven Reinprecht typically played as center and was known for his two-way versatility. In the 2000-01 season in which he played 59 games with the Los Angeles Kings of the NHL, Reinprecht was included in the blockbuster trade that brought Rob Blake to the Colorado Avalanche of the NHL in 2001, where he helped the Avs win the Stanley Cup. In this season, he played 21 regular season games and 22 play-off games with the Colorado Avalanche of the NHL.
After that, Reinprecht continued with the Colorado Avalanche of the NHL for next two seasons.
He played with the Mulhouse of the Ligue Magnus during the 2004-05 NHL lockout where he won Charles Ramsey Trophy for the player who scored most points (47) in the Ligue Magnus, became the French champion and made it into the French All-Star Team.
Reinprecht returned to the Calgary Flames of the NHL for the 2005-06 season. He played there 52 games before he was traded to the Phoenix Coyotes of the NHL on February 1, 2006, in a deal also involving Philippe Sauvé, Mike Leclerc and Brian Boucher. He finished the season there with 28 games played.
Reinprecht then continued with the Phoenix Coyotes of the NHL for next three seasons.
After the 2008–09 season, Reinprecht's rights were traded to the Florida Panthers of the NHL on June 19, 2009 in exchange for forward Stefan Meyer. The Panthers then signed him to a three-year deal. In the 2010–11 season, his second year with the rebuilding Panthers, Reinprecht was demoted as a reserve forward and played sparingly in 29 games. Going unclaimed on waivers, Reinprecht was then loaned to the Adler Mannheim of the DEL for the remainder of the season on January 6, 2011. In 18 regular season games with the Adler Mannheim, he scored 4 goals and 13 points, and after suffering a quarterfinal defeat after 6 quarterfinal games in the play-offs he returned for the final year of his contract with the Florida Panthers organisation.
On October 22, 2011, after 5 games played with the San Antonio Rampage of the AHL, Reinprecht was traded along with fellow forward David Booth and a 3rd round pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft to the Vancouver Canucks organisation for forwards Mikael Samuelsson and Marco Sturm. Reinprecht reported to the Canucks' AHL team, the Chicago Wolves. He finished there the season with 57 regular season games and 4 play-off games played.
Since 2012-13 season, Reinprecht played in the DEL with the Nürnberg Ice Tigers where he also in 2018 retired. In the 2014-15 season, he was the player who scored most points (67) and most assists (46) in the DEL.
