Sam Reinhart has had an interesting nine months, rocketing to 37 points in 38 games after a slow start over the first half of the Sabres' season.

"There were some tough times and kind of tough conversations I had to have with myself and people close to me, and I was able to get through that and bounce back," the forward said of his 4th pro season.

Then came his contract impasse. He talks about that time, Jack Eichel's growth, and avoiding fights with his older brothers.
