The players are forward Sam Reinhart of the Kootenay Ice and defenseman Griffin Reinhart of the Edmonton Oil Kings.

Griffin Reinhart, a fourth overall pick of the New York Islanders in the 2012 National Hockey League Entry Draft, was on the Canadian squad at the 2013 World Junior Hockey Championships in Ufa, Russia. Griffin Reinhart had one assist in the tournament in five games. So far this season, Griffin Reinhart has two goals and nine assists for 11 points in 20 games with the Oil Kings, where he is playing in his fifth year in the Western Hockey League.

Sam Reinhart meanwhile leads the Ice with 34 assists and 50 points. Sam Reinhart was one of three players on the squad, joining defenseman Aaron Ekblad of the Barrie Colts and Connor McDavid of the Erie Otters, who have not yet been drafted into the National Hockey League.

Paul Reinhart played with the Calgary Flames from 1979-1988, and recorded a career high 75 points in 1983.
