The Chicago Blackhawks announced today that they have recalled forward Peter Regin
from the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League.
Regin, 28, shared the Rockford team lead with 10 points (4G, 6A) through 11 games this season, including two goals in the IceHogs’ overtime win on Nov. 4 vs. Lake Erie. Regin also appeared in three preseason contests with Chicago and recorded one assist.
The Herning, Denmark, native tallied four points (2G, 2A) in 17 regular-season games with the Blackhawks last year after being acquired from the New York Islanders in a trade on Feb. 6, 2014. Regin also registered four shots on goal in five 2014 Stanley Cup Playoff games with Chicago.
Originally the Ottawa Senators’ third-round selection (87th overall) in the 2004 National Hockey League Draft, Regin has earned 66 points (23G, 43A) in 239 career regular-season NHL games with Ottawa, the NY Islanders and Chicago and has posted four points (3G, 1A) in 11 career Stanley Cup Playoff games with Ottawa and Chicago. He also appeared in 67 career AHL games with Rockford and the Binghamton Senators, tallying 57 points (22G, 35A).
Prior to his North American career, Regin registered 58 points (25G, 33A) in 150 career games with Timra of the Swedish Hockey League from 2005 to 2008. He has represented his native Denmark in international competition 14 times, including six appearances at the International Ice Hockey Federation World Championships (2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010).
The Blackhawks return to action on Friday when they host the Washington Capitals at the United Center. Puck drop is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. CT and the game can be seen on Comcast SportsNet Plus and heard on WGN Radio AM-720 (also simulcast on 87.7FM The Game).
