Paul Reinhart : biography
Paul Gerard Reinhart (born January 6, 1960) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey defenceman who played for the Atlanta Flames, Calgary Flames and Vancouver Canucks in the National Hockey League (NHL). He was a first round selection by the Flames, 12th overall, at the 1979 NHL Entry Draft with whom he immediately broke into the NHL. He relocated with the franchise to Calgary in 1980, playing a total of nine seasons with the Flames franchise until he was traded to Vancouver in 1988. He was a two-time all-star and played with Team Canada on three occasions, winning bronze medals at the World Championships in 1982 and 1983. Chronic back problems plagued him throughout his career and forced his retirement in 1990. Settling in Vancouver following his playing career, Reinhart became a stock market financier and investor. He was briefly involved with the Vancouver Ravens of the National Lacrosse League in the early 2000s.
Reinhart and his wife Theresa have three children, all of whom play hockey. Their eldest son, Maxwell, made his NHL debut with the Flames in 2013. His middle son, Griffin Reinhart, currently plays for the Edmonton Oil Kings and was drafted 4th overall in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. His youngest son, Sam, plays for the Kootenay Ice in the WHL. Paul and his wife spent their summers in Calgary during his playing days, where he often played with the team's summer charity softball team, but settled in West Vancouver following the end of his NHL career.
Flames' co-owner Doc Seaman introduced Reinhart to investing and finance while he was playing with the team. He also owned a restaurant in Calgary. He now makes his living investing in start-up companies. Reinhart's investments have focused on resource exploration and medical companies and in 2011 joined the management of Vancouver-based Bearing Resources Ltd. He was involved with the Vancouver Ravens franchise in the National Lacrosse League for a time, but walked away from the franchise in 2003 after claiming losses in excess of $1 million.
