Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray announced today the club has re-signed forward Peter Regin
to a two-year contract.
Regin, 24, played his first full National Hockey League season with the Senators in 2009-10, contributing 29 points (13 goals, 16 assists) and 20 penalty minutes in 75 games. In six playoff contests against the Pittsburgh Penguins, he ranked first among Senators (tie) in goals with three, including the game-tying goal with less than 10 minutes remaining in the third period of Game 5, which went on to become the longest game in franchise history and a 5-4 overtime victory for Ottawa.
In parts of two NHL seasons (both with the Senators), Regin has scored 14 goals while adding 17 assists in 86 career games. Regin led Ottawa in rookie scoring and plus/minus (+10) last season.
A native of Herning, Denmark, Regin played three seasons with Timra IK of the Swedish Elite League before making his professional debut with the American Hockey League’s Binghamton Senators in 2008-09. He made his NHL debut in the Senators’ 3-2 victory over the Washington Capitals on Jan. 20, 2009, becoming only the fifth player born in Denmark to play in an NHL game.
Regin was Ottawa’s first third-round pick, 87th overall, in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.
