Reynolds knows he won’t outmuscle many opponents, so he instead beats his enemies with sounded positioning, a combative stick and graceful backchecks. He has quickly built a habit of consistently getting back into his own zone quickly and supporting his defensemen against counterattacks by blocking skating and passing lanes. His sticklifts are snappy and he can assert his dominance on the puck through those. Outside of pure compete, the centerman also possesses superb skating abilities, that helps him hunt down opponents as he comes back to the defensive zone. Reynolds flashes explosive first few steps and a tremendous acceleration, which enable him to get to high speed swiftly. He passes from his outside to inside edge almost instantly, which allows him to push off each stride briskly and makes him looks so speedy/volatile. He has an excellent stance, perfectly leaned over and low to the ice for power generation. His outstanding top speed is evident as he blows past rivals on both sides of the puck. Reynolds is present and active on breakouts, frequently using his quick footspeed and crossovers to get free on the outlet. His impressive quickness and agility have allowed him to lead multiple zone exits, where he dodges attackers and gets into skating lanes seamlessly. As a pass-first attacker, Reynolds always looks to open the play in neutral zone, to make the transition fluid and keep the defense on their edge. He understands the power of positioning, and calls upon freeing himself and crashing the net in rush offenses. Developing more power and accuracy in his shot would allow him to finish more of countless scoring occasions. On the cycle, he distributes the puck very well and can make quick decisions in pressured situations, a result of his above-average vision and spatial awareness. He often tries to attack the crease with rapid and vicious passes in front. He exhibits smooth edgework to create space for himself, but more often than not, quickly gives possession back to one of his teammates. He’ll need some more confidence in his abilities to generate his own chances. He has the skills to be a dual threat, but just needs to take more chances offensively. Reynolds’s pride in his defensive responsibilities, magnificent skating and superb spatial awareness makes him a very interesting playmaking two-way center.
