In the ever-competitive world of the NHL, an intriguing comparison has emerged, and surprisingly, it doesn't hail from the traditional hockey powerhouse of Montreal. David Reinbacher, a rising star, has been gaining widespread admiration throughout the league, with Boston journalist Kevin Paul Dupont being among those impressed.

Dupont's observation highlights the similarities between Reinbacher and the standout Boston Bruins defenseman, Charlie McAvoy.

Both players share comparable size and playing styles, evoking memories of McAvoy's own draft selection back in 2016, where he was taken 14th overall. The potential Reinbacher possesses, akin to McAvoy's when he was drafted, adds an exciting layer of promise to the Montreal Canadiens' roster.

While much has been said about the highly-touted prospect Matvei Michkov, it's Reinbacher's emergence as a player reminiscent of McAvoy that has captured attention.


Dupont even delves into the hypothetical realm of a trade, highlighting McAvoy's immense value to the Bruins, especially when considering a potential swap involving Nikita Kucherov.

However, it's essential not to burden the young Reinbacher with the weight of becoming the next McAvoy. Rather, the focus lies on appreciating his incredible potential as he continues to develop and grow in the NHL.

McAvoy, having forged an impressive path since his 2016 draft, has solidified his position among the league's top-tier defensemen, a testament to his talent and dedication.

As Reinbacher's journey unfolds, hockey enthusiasts eagerly anticipate the captivating spectacle he may bring to the ice. The young Austrian's rise in the NHL landscape adds an extra layer of excitement and intrigue to the ever-evolving world of hockey.
