In 830 career NHL games, he scored 378 assists for 630 points, he played with the Frankfurt Lions of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga. He ended his player career in 2010 in HC Litvínov. Internationally, Reichel represented Czechoslovakia and the Czech Republic on numerous occasions, he was an all-star at the European Junior, World Junior and World Championship levels and appeared in Canada Cup and World Cup of Hockey tournaments. He was four bronze medal teams at the World Championships. A two-time Olympian, Reichel scored the lone shootout goal to eliminate Canada en route to a gold medal victory for the Czech Republic at the 1998 Winter Olympics. Reichel began his elite playing career at the age of 16 when he joined CHZ Litvínov of the Czechoslovak First Ice Hockey League.

In his first two seasons, he recorded 27 points in 1987–88 and 48 points in 1988–89. Anticipating future availability of eastern European players to their teams, National Hockey League general managers selected several Soviet Bloc players at the 1989 NHL Entry Draft. Reichel was selected in 70th overall, by the Calgary Flames. Reichel remained with Litvínov for the 1989–90 season where he had one of the greatest seasons in Czechoslovakian history, he was named an all-star and forward of the year and finished as runner-up to Dominik Hašek as player of the year. Upon his departure to Calgary for the 1990–91 NHL season, Reichel was considered Czechoslovakia's top prospect, he made his NHL debut on October 8, 1990, against the Winnipeg Jets and scored his first point and goal on October 20, against Boston Bruins' goaltender Réjean Lemelin. Reichel completed his first NHL season with 41 points improved to 54 points in 1991–92. A pair of 40-goal seasons followed as Reichel finished second in team scoring in 1992–93 and led the team with 93 points in 1993–94.

A labour dispute resulted in the cancellation of the first half of the 1994–95 NHL season, Reichel spent the time with the Frankfurt Lions of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga. He recorded 43 points in 21 games for Frankfurt before returning to the NHL, where he added 35 points in 48 games for Calgary. Reichel became embroiled in a contract dispute with the Flames, he made C$$725,000 in 1994–95, was offered US$1 million to remain with Frankfurt. Unable to come to terms with Calgary, Reichel returned to Frankfurt for the 1995–96 season. In 46 games with the Lions, Reichel led the DEL in goals and points. Reichel and the Flames resolved their impasse prior to the 1996–97 NHL season and agreed to a three-year, US$4.4 million contract. He struggled offensively in his return to Calgary, Reichel had only 16 goals and 43 points through 70 games with Calgary, became the subject of trade rumours; the Flames sent him to the New York Islanders on March 18, 1997, in exchange for Marty McInnis, Tyrone Garner and a sixth round selection in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft.

In 12 games with the Islanders to finish the season, Reichel recorded 19 points and finished the year with 53 combined between the two teams. Reichel played only one full season with the Islanders. New York sent Reichel to the Phoenix Coyotes on March 1999, in exchange for Brad Isbister; the teams swapped draft picks. A restricted free agent following the season, Reichel sought a contract worth $3 million per season; when he was unable to attract interest at that price, Reichel opted to return to Litvínov, now in the Czech Extraliga. He averaged greater than a point per game. Reichel once again returned to North America as the Coyotes traded his NHL playing rights to the Toronto Maple Leafs, along with Travis Green and Craig Mills, in exchange for Danny Markov on June 12, 2001. In his first season with the Maple Leafs, 2001–02, he scored 20 goals – the seventh time in his NHL career he had done so – and 51 points, his production declined over the following two seasons, recording 42 points in 2002–03 and 30 in 2003–04.

Reichel retired in 2010.

Bavarian C IV

The C IV was a steam locomotive, built for goods train duties, manufactured between 1884 and 1897 for the Royal Bavarian State Railways. Between 1884 and 1893 a total of 87 units two-cylinder, saturated, they were followed by two compound engines in 1889 for testing and 98 more compounds from 1892 to 1897. The locomotives, which for the first time did not have the external frames typical in Bavaria up to that time, were soon no longer equal to the growing demands made on them. In spite of that, many were taken over by the Deutsche Reichsbahn, designated as Class 53.80-81 and allocated the operating numbers 53 8011 to 8064 and 53 8081 to 8168. The two-cylinder engines were equipped with a Bavarian Class 3 T 10.2 tender. The compound variants had a Class 3 T 10.5 tender.
