The 19-year-old recorded eight points (4G-4A) and a plus-seven rating in two games as the Wheat Kings split a home-and-home set against the Winnipeg Ice. The win kept the Wheat Kings six points ahead of the Moose Jaw Warriors for the second wild card spot in the WHL's Eastern Conference.

Friday, Reinhardt posted a career-high five points (3G, 2A) in a 7-4 win against the Ice.

In Saturday's 6-5  in Winnipeg, Reinhardt recorded a goal as part of a three-point night.

The 6-foot-1, 200-pound product of Calgary, Alta. is enjoying a strong first half of the season, posting 28 points (17G-11A) in 28 games, including three power-play goals, one short-handed goal, and two game-winning goals. His 17 goals are tied for fifth in the WHL.

Brandon returns to action on Tuesday, December 3 (7:00 p.m. CT) when they play host to the Swift Current Broncos at Westoba Place.
