The defending Stanley Cup champions announced the deal on Thursday while the team travelled to Chicago for the start of the Western Conference finals on Saturday.
Regehr has played in 12 regular-season games and 13 post-season games for the Kings, providing physical defensive play and penalty-killing expertise. He also has three assists.
The 13-year NHL veteran would have been an unrestricted free agent this summer, but general manager Dean Lombardi said he would aggressively attempt to re-sign Regehr before then.
