Even with CBA negotiations heating up, NHLers continue to sign overseas.
That’s the word out of Ottawa on Thursday as forward Peter Regin reportedly agreed to join Langenthal of Switzerland’s National League B.
National League B is the second tier of professional Swiss hockey; SC Langenthal is perhaps best known as the former club of Calgary Flames prospect Sven Bartschi.
Regin, 26, inked a one-year, one-way, $800,000 deal with the Senators this offseason that seemed to be a good faith gesture based on past performances — because his most recent performances have been injury-riddled.
Regin’s problem throughout his career is that he’s been chronically hurt (especially his shoulders.) He missed 72 games last year and 27 the year before, all due to either a shoulder or upper-body injury.
But in 2009-10, he played 75 games with the Senators, posting career highs in goals (13), assists (16) and points (29) while leading Ottawa in goals (three) during the playoffs.
