Kenton Rein

1 NHL Game

March 29, 1988 Buffalo Sabres vs Quebec Nordiques. 3-1 win.

   I was able to reach Mr. Rein and ask him about his brief NHL career. "The story of mine was that I was injured with a concussion the entire 1987/88 year, other than for 20 minutes in Flint, Michigan. Buffalo had some injuries and I was called up for one game only in Quebec City on March 29, 1988. I was called up for three weeks the next year, but did not get into a game. The Sabres, bless their hearts, still give me alumni status with them." It was an injury to Buffalo goalie Tom Barrasso that lead to Rein's call up. He dressed behind Daren Puppa in his only NHL appearance. 

  In 1986 with the Prince Albert Raiders Kenton Rein set a WHL playoff record for longest shoutout streak at 196:45, a record that stood for over 20 years. July, 1987 he was signed to entry-level deal by Buffalo Sabres.

   In 2015 Rein was honoured by the WHL and Prince Albert Raiders for his academic success post hockey. After having up his skates in 1991 Rein hit the books and got a law degree from the University of Calgary. For his success he was awarded the WHL Alumni Achievement Award.
