In 961 career NHL regular-season games, David tallied 369 points including 165 goals. Throughout his NHL career, Dave Reid was known for his tenacious defensive style of hockey.

Upon retirement from playing in 2001, Dave began a new career as a Hockey Analyst with the NHL Network and TSN. David resides in Ennismore, Ontario with his wife Kathy and their two children, Jessica and Alec.
