Making The Grade: Peter Regin



Season Review –  This should have been the year that Peter Regin had dreamed of.  Coming off an injury plagued season, he had a long time to prepare and get healthy and then boom…early in the season an injury to the club’s top centre opens up a spot for an offensive-minded centre.  Well that dream quickly turned into a nightmare for Regin, who was unable to gain any traction in his play.  The result was a very pedestrian 3 assists in 27 games played, with two of them coming in the same game.  Quite frankly when I looked at the stats, I was hard pressed to remember him playing in that many games, or even that late into the season (he last played April 9th).  It was a very uninspiring performance to put it nicely.

Playoffs – Regin was a standout member of the Black Aces…he never even got close to being in the lineup.

Contract Status – Regin will become an unrestricted free agent on July 5th, after his 1 year, $800,000 contract expires

Importance To Franchise – The one year contract he just completed was the last chance for the Danish Delight.  Although it has not been said publicly, I wouldn’t expect Regin to be in the short term or long term plans for the Senators.  He is probably destined for a stint in Europe.

Needs to Improve – Health has been a big factor in his development (or rather lack thereof).  He could improve in all aspects of the game, in both ends of the ice.

Grade – F…for Frankly disappointing.  Regin has shown flashes in the past that he could have turned into a decent player.  This was his final, and probably best, opportunity to show it consistently and he failed in that pursuit big time.
