Regin, Senators agree on two-year deal
The Ottawa Senators have re-signed restricted free-agent forward Peter Regin to a two-year contract. The deal avoids an arbitration hearing scheduled for Friday

In his first full NHL season, Regin had 13 goals and 29 points, but his playoff performance is what stood out. In six playoff games in the first round against the Pittsburgh Penguins, he tied for the team lead with 3 goals. He scored in the first period of Games 1 and 2 against the Penguins, and earned a spot at left wing on the club's top line, playing alongside Jason Spezza and Daniel Alfredsson.

"His strengths are his speed, his vision, his creativity, and I thought he's used that," Senators coach Cory Clouston said during the playoffs. "He's elevated his game as much or more than anyone has."

A 2004 third-round pick of the Senators, the 6-foot-2, 197-pound native of Herning, Denmark, has 14 goals and 31 points in 86 NHL games.
Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
