Peter Regin’s time playing with SC Langenthal of the Swiss National League B has come to an end. As reported on October 30th in the Ottawa Citizen and Ottawa Sun, Regin was only a temporary one while the team’s leading scorer from the previous year, Jeff Campbell, recovered from a concussion.
The Sun also reported that Regin says his shoulder held up well on the trip:
Regin had season-ending surgery on his left shoulder last January — an extremely disheartening injury given that surgery on his right shoulder ended his 2010-11 season.
Since showing all sorts of promise with three goals and one assist in six games for the Senators in the 2010 playoffs, Regin has been limited to just 65 games over the past two NHL campaigns.
“I took a couple of hits,” Regin said of his brief time in Switzerland while speaking with reporters after locked-out NHLers had their hour-long skate Thursday at the Bell Sensplex. “That was probably the biggest thing out of these weeks, to feel that and be confident.
“It’s been good here at the skates, but you guys have been watching, there’s not a lot of hitting going on. So you don’t really know until you get into battles, and it responded good, so that was perfect.”
