Steven Edward "Steve" Reinprecht (born May 7, 1976) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey player, currently the assistant coach for the German National Team and German National Junior Team.

Playing career[edit | edit source]

Undrafted, Steven Reinprecht typically plays as centre and is known for his two-way versatility.[1] Reinprecht signed as a free agent straight out from college with the Los Angeles Kings in 2000. In his rookie season, Reinprecht was included in the blockbuster trade that brought Rob Blake to the Colorado Avalanche in 2001, where he helped the Avs win the Stanley Cup.[2]

Reinprecht was traded to the Calgary Flames on July 3, 2003.[3] He missed the last four months of the 2003–04 season after surgery on his left shoulder. He played for HC Mulhouse in the Nationale 1 division of the French league during the 2004–05 NHL lockout, where he led the team in points, assists and tied-first in goals, before returning to the Flames for the 2005–06 NHL season.

The Flames traded him to the Phoenix Coyotes on February 1, 2006, in a deal also involving Philippe Sauvé, Mike Leclerc and Brian Boucher.[4]

After the 2008–09 season and three years with the Coyotes, Reinprecht's rights were traded to the Florida Panthers on June 19, 2009 in exchange for forward Stefan Meyer. The Panthers then signed him to a three-year deal.[5] 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 German team, Adler Mannheim for the remainder of the season on January 6, 2011.[6] In 18 games with the Eagles he scored 4 goals and 13 points, and after suffering a Quarterfinal defeat in the Playoffs he returned for the final year of his contract with Florida.[7]

On October 22, 2011, Reinprecht was traded along with fellow forward David Booth and a 3rd round pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft to the Vancouver Canucks for forwards Mikael Samuelsson and Marco Sturm.[8] Reinprecht reported to the Canucks' AHL team the Chicago Wolves.

Since 2012-13 season, Reinprecht played in German DEL for the Nürnberg Ice Tigers where he also in 2018 retired.
