Los Angeles defenseman Robyn Regehr suffered an undisclosed arm injury during the playoffs and will undergo surgery today, according to Kings head coach Darryl Sutter.

Calling it a ‘bad arm,’ Sutter indicated the veteran blueliner was banged up and playing hurt during L.A.’s run to the Western Conference finals.

Despite that, Regehr still appeared in all 18 games for the Kings and averaged over 21 minutes per night — though, it must be said, he did finish with a team-worst minus-8 rating.

The Kings were impressed enough with Regehr’s play to sign him to a two-year, $6 million deal following their second round defeat of San Jose.

    Wow, I would want to sign with this organization. They signed him to decent money KNOWING he was injured?

    I read an article online about the Kings wanting to keep this team together.

    Brown apologize fir his performance…Kopitar was mentioned as saying if him or Brown could have played to their potential…..the Kings might still be playing.

    They have experienced alOT together over the last 4 playoff seasons.

    But what stood out was a comment by Brown saying that the sting of losing this year was more
    Impact than the joy of winning last year….

    That what I love about this Kings group..they now HATE to lose more than their want to win.

    All teams say they want to win…..its the one that truly HATE to lose….
    That make a saying impression!!!!

    Thanks again for never giving up.

    Congrats to Hawks. They were a step faster.

    Go Kings Go!

    That series with SJ was brutal and here’s yet another injury to prove it. It would be nice to see the Kings get off to a better start next year, keep it up all season long, and get a higher seed in order to not only have more games at home, but perhaps avoid playing another meat-grinder series against the likes of the Sharks.
