Blake Reinert is the latest addition to the Steamboat Wranglers’ roster. He’s playing goaltender. Reinert has been playing hockey for 15 years, first with the Hyland Hills Jr. Hockey Association, and then the Boulder Bison, and eventually on to Monarch High School, where the team took second at Nationals. Reinert also played with the Colorado Stallions out of Colorado Springs, where the team won two national championships.
Wrangler Head Coach Ryan Dingle writes, “Blake is a great individual who has the potential to challenge our other goalies for a top spot on the team. He has raw talent and will benefit from our goalie coach working with him on a weekly bases. Blake is beyond excited to come to Steamboat this season. Nothing excites a coach more than having passionate players pull on their team's sweater. I expect Blake's work ethic and passion will take him far this season.”
Reinert is also looking forward to the hockey season in Ski Town U.S.A., as he has heard a lot about the Steamboat hockey family. “I’ve heard what a great organization the Wranglers are, from so many people. I can’t wait to get on the ice, and start playing hockey in front of the Steamboat crowd.”
