|Assets:||Is at his best when he goes one-on-one against top forwards, since he can shut the best down with intimidation and poise. Has an accurate point shot, great size, sound hockey sense, decent mobility and an exemplary work ethic.|
|Flaws:||Doesn't put up significant offensive numbers. Is a little bit too hesitant with the puck on his stick, since he's not a natural stick-handler. Can be guilty of being a little too aggressive at times.|
|Career Potential:||Veteran physical shutdown defenseman.|

NewsRobyn Regehr scored on a slap shot 2:33 into overtime to give the Kings a come-from-behind 2-1 win against the Columbus Blue Jackets Thursday night at Staples Center.

Robyn Regeher to play in 1000th game today | 02/01/2014 11:27 AM
NewsDefenseman Robyn Regehr will play in his 1,000th NHL game today when the Los Angeles Kings entertain the Philadelphia Flyers.
ImpactHe will reach the milestone at 33 years of age, in 14 seasons with the Kings, Buffalo Sabres and Calgary Flames. Regehr was a prospect in Calgary's organization on the night of July 4, 1999. He was driving to the Saskatchewan town of Rosthern with his brother, Dinho, and two female passengers when a car veered into their lane and hit them head on. Regehr had multiple fractures in his left leg and a puncture wound in his right leg. Two people in the other car died. Regehr had surgery to have two screws inserted in his left leg and was hospitalized for nine days. But he made his NHL debut that October, and that season became the youngest nominee for the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy. "You've got to remember, a guy like Robyn Regehr, he wasn't supposed to play," Kings coach Darryl Sutter said. "He was a car accident injury away from hardly ever playing one game. So for him to get to this point is pretty significant."
Robyn Regehr approaches 1000-game mark | 01/31/2014 9:46 AM
NewsRobyn Regehr needs to play in just one more game to reach 1,000.
ImpactRegehr hasn't missed a significant portion of a campaign since 2005-06 and even then he still managed to play in 68 contests. He's just 33 years old, so while he's reaching an impressive career milestone, he's not slowing down yet.
Robyn Regehr playing better positional hockey | 10/27/2013 8:06 AM
NewsRobyn Regehr has been playing better positional hockey this season.
ImpactThe 33-year-old blueliner has no fantasy value but is a valued member of the Kings defense as he is a steadying force. "I think if you look at Robyn as a player, he's always been known as a tough defender. He's a really good defender," said assistant coach John Stevens. "He gets people isolated along the boards and below the goal line, the plays he stops there. On top of that, he's not going to lead the rush, but he's capable of getting the puck and moving it up, getting it to his partner and making a support play. I think he's been very effective for us in that regard the last couple games."
Robyn Regehr is over surgery on arm | 09/13/2013 10:06 PM
NewsLos Angeles Kings defenseman Robyn Regehr said that the only thing lingering from a fairly grotesque-sounding arm surgery is a scar.
LA Kings Insider
ImpactHe needed an offseason surgery to remove a bursa from his elbow thanks to a cut that got worse and worse as the 2013 playoffs went on. He's not a big fantasy contributor, yet a healthy Regehr could mean subtly healthier numbers for Jonathan Quick.

NewsRobyn Regehr accidentally deflected the puck into his own net in Sunday's Game 2 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.
Los Angeles Times
ImpactRegehr's "goal" was credited to Bryan Bickell and gave Chicago a 3-0 lead. "I was coming back to the net and saw the defenseman was taking a shot and I tried to get the puck rather than get his stick and I think it hit my stick and went in," Regehr said. "On that one, you've got to tie up the guy a little bit better and let Jonathan (Quick) find the puck."
Kings re-up Robyn Regehr with 2-year contract | 05/30/2013 5:42 PM

ImpactAccording to a source, he will earn $3 million per season in his new deal. Regehr skated in 12 regular-season contests and 13 playoff games with the Kings after being acquired from Buffalo. He won't dazzle anyone on the scoresheet, but he can contribute in hits and blocks.

ImpactRegehr also broke his nose in Game 1 after David Backes kicked him in the face and it was broken again on Wednesday when he was clipped by the high-stick of T.J. Oshie. Regehr has been paired with Drew Doughty and the duo have been terrific in the playoffs.
Kings need to improve third period play | 05/06/2013 8:34 AM
NewsThe Los Angeles Kings need to improve their play in the third period according to defenseman Robyn Regehr.
ImpactThe Kings gave up an overtime goal in Game 1 and a poor goal in Game 2, while sitting back in Game 3 and allowing the Blues to outshoot them 10-2. "Yeah, I think we want to improve in third periods, most definitely," Regehr said. "We gave up the late goal in St. Louis in Game 2, and also just sat back too much here last night in Game 3. So for us, we want to come out and play an assertive, aggressive game. We want to be the one skating, getting pucks in, getting our forecheck going, things like that, because you want to put teams under constant pressure, and that's usually where you either tire them out or get your best chances. So we didn't do a very good job of that the last couple games, and most definitely we want to improve on that."

NewsJeff Carter loves the play of new teammate Robyn Regehr.
Los Angeles Daily News
ImpactCarter has been impressed with the veteran Regehr who will really help the Kings in the playoffs with his tough play. "I think I only played against him a few times. When I came to the West, he went to the East," Carter said. "I mean, he's just a hard-nosed, big, strong guy. He's almost like a bully out there. He's always in your face. Every time you turn around, he's there. It's great for us back there." We cannot recommend the defenseman in fantasy pools but he will be a valuable asset for the Kings on the ice with his defensive play.
Robyn Regehr gets a point in Kings' debut | 04/05/2013 10:14 AM

NewsRobyn Regehr will make his Los Angeles debut Thursday night.
ImpactHe is slated to play with Keaton Ellerby on the Kings' third pairing, which will bump Alec Martinez out of the lineup. Regehr's only fantasy value is in leagues that credit hits and blocks, otherwise he shouldn't be on your radar.

Helene Elliott on Twitter
ImpactThe Kings gave up two second-round picks to acquire Regehr in a trade with the Sabres on Monday. Once he joins the team, Regehr should be a steadying force for the defending Stanley Cup champions but is unlikely to affect your fantasy league down the stretch. The veteran defenseman has just two assists and 21 penalty minutes in 29 games this season.
Kings get Robyn Regehr from the Sabres | 04/01/2013 8:58 PM
NewsRobyn Regehr has been acquired by the Los Angeles Kings.
ImpactThe Sabres will receive a pair of second round picks from the Kings, a nice haul for the defenseman who is in the last year of his contract. Regehr will provide the Kings with a steadying presence on the blueline but will not have a lot of fantasy value as he has only two assists this season in 29 games with 21 penalty minutes and a minus-four rating. He was required to waive the no-movement clause in his contract, which he did for a shot at the Stanley Cup.
Regehr could be dealt before Wednesday | 03/30/2013 10:01 AM
NewsWe expect Robyn Regehr's name to come up in trade talks this week.
ImpactThe steady rearguard is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1st and Buffalo will likely move him for a prospect or a draft pick provided he waives his partial no-trade clause. There are plenty of teams that can use Regehr's services so a deal is likely.

ImpactRegehr has been sidelined since Jan. 29 with what's believed to be an ankle injury and would have to be activated off injured reserve before he could return. Still, this is more of an FYI since Regehr is a far better defenseman in real life than fantasy leagues.
