Feb 4 - 1:24 PM

Griffin Reinhart knows what he has to work on to make the leap and become an NHL regular.

After receiving a conversation with GM Peter Chiarelli, Reinhart knows he needs to be more assertive. Still just 22-years-old, it's not surprising such a young player would be tentative. Sometimes a player simply needs time to mature mentally and emotionally before going to the next level. A couple good months in Bakersfield could go a long way towards his career's trajectory.

Griffin Reinhart has been cut from the Edmonton Oilers' training camp roster.

It's not too surprising that Reinhart didn't make Edmonton's opening game roster, but it's still disappointing relative to what the expectations were for him. The Islanders took him with the fourth pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, but the 22-year-old has only participated in 37 NHL games to this point. That said, he has the potential to work his way onto Edmonton's roster this season if he hits the ground running in the minors.

Griffin Reinhart picked up his first assist of the season Saturday.

Reinhart was recalled on Friday with the injury to Brandon Davidson after spending the first seven-plus weeks of the NHL season with Edmonton before his demotion to the minors. The Oilers are trying to give players some much needed time in the minors rather than rushing him and Reinhart, the fourth overall pick in 2012 by the Islanders, is a prime example. "Darnell (Nurse), Griffin, those types of players, even (Brandon) Davidson, they need time to develop," coach Todd McLellan said. "Some of the best defensemen in the league have. When I was in Detroit, Nik Kronwall was coming out of a full year in the American League. He won the Eddie Shore Trophy for the top defenseman. He played a full year." Reinhart has no fantasy value at this time.
