|Assets:||A good puckhandler, he can create offense at a very high tempo. Skates very well and can play either center or wing. Has good offensive instincts. Is sound defensively, too.|
|Flaws:||Needs to use his 6-2 frame more effectively to gain an edge in physical battles. Must also learn to shoot the puck more often, so as to keep defenses honest. Injuries are a concern.|

Peter Regin hopes to earn bigger role | 07/02/2014 8:58 AM
NewsPeter Regin hopes to play a bigger role in 2014-15 than he had after being acquired by Chicago in February.
ImpactRegin signed a one-year, $650,000 contract with the Blackhawks. "It's up to me that prove that I belong in the lineup every night," Regin said. "That's kind of all I've been asking is to get a shot and I think with a full season it's going to benefit my chances." He had four goals and 11 points in 61 games last season.
Peter Regin re-signs in Chicago | 07/01/2014 2:36 PM
NewsThe Chicago Blackhawks have re-signed Peter Regin to a one-year/$650,000 contract.
Bob McKenzie on Twitter
ImpactRegin was acquired from the Islanders in February and was mostly a depth player, especially during the playoffs. He played 61 regular season games in the NHL last season, scoring four and adding seven assists. He could have a bigger role in 2014-15 as he has a very friendly salary cap hit and the Blackhawks could be up against the cap.
Peter Regin uncertain if Hawks want him back | 06/04/2014 5:00 PM
NewsPeter Regin isn't sure if he factors into the Blackhawks' future plans.
ImpactChicago acquired Regin from the Ottawa Senators, but didn't use him much during the playoffs. He's scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. For what it's worth, Regin would like to re-sign with Chicago.
Peter Regin may suit up in Game 6 Friday | 05/29/2014 4:27 PM
NewsPeter Regin could get back into Chicago's lineup for Game 6.
Mark Lazerus on Twitter
ImpactIt's being speculated that the Blackhawks will scratch Kris Versteeg, so Regin or Jeremy Morin may get the nod for Friday's game instead. Regin has appeared in five games this postseason, but he hasn't dressed since Game 4 against Los Angeles.
Regin likely to be scratched with Shaw return | 05/24/2014 9:12 AM
NewsThe Blackhawks will likely scratch Peter Regin for Game 3 Saturday night against the Kings to create an active roster spot for Andrew Shaw.
ImpactShaw practiced with Kris Versteeg and Brandon Saad in practice on Friday, while Regin did not scrimmage on any of the top four lines. The well-travelled Regin played in the Hawks last four playoff games after being a healthy scratch for Chicago's first 10 post-season matches. As he has yet to register a point, Regin's stint in the press box is not really big news.
Peter Regin has a shot at Cup with Chicago | 05/21/2014 11:22 AM
NewsAfter starting the season with Ottawa, Peter Regin has a chance to win the Stanley Cup with Chicago.
ImpactThe Blackhawks acquired him to bolster their team's depth and Peter Regin has gotten some playing time with Andrew Shaw sidelined. "I knew it was going to be tough to crack the lineup," Regin said. "I knew I wasn't coming here to be a first line center and that I would have to earn my ice time. It's exciting to be part of it, even when you're not playing. Even practice is fun. The expectation is to win. It's up to me to play well to stay in and I think it has gone well the last three games." He's scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.
Peter Regin adds jump to Hawks' fourth line | 05/12/2014 7:33 AM
NewsPeter Regin skated on the fourth line in Game 5 and coach Joel Quenneville like what he saw.
ImpactHe joined Kris Versteeg and Brandon Saad on the new-look combination. "He [Regin] came in and gave us good presence. Speed in the middle," Quenneville said. "Steeger, too. That line was effective for us - gave us more balance, a four-line rotation. It was a good response [from Regin] in the first playoff game for him. We liked what we saw." It was Regin's first playoff in four years and his first appearance in Chicago's lineup since April 12th.
Peter Regin to get a playoff shot in Game 5 | 05/11/2014 2:02 PM
NewsAfter waiting patiently through nearly two full rounds of action, it appears as if the Chicago Blackhawks will insert Peter Regin into the lineup for Game 5 against the Minnesota Wild.
ImpactAn injury to Andrew Shaw and suspension for Brandon Bollig opens the door for Regin, who hasn't played since an April 12 regular season game and hasn't scored a goal since March 14. He's unlikely to make a huge long-term impact, yet sometimes players can take advantage of fresher legs and a renewed opportunity in their first games back.
Peter Regin should be back in Tuesday | 03/03/2014 1:01 PM
NewsPeter Regin may center Chicago's third line when he returns to the lineup on Tuesday night.
ImpactIt's possible that Andrew Shaw will be moved to the wing to necessitate the change. Regin was a healthy scratch for Saturday's Stadium Series tilt versus Pittsburgh. He has one goal in two games with the Blackhawks since he was acquired from the New York Islanders.
Peter Regin scores lone goal in loss | 02/27/2014 10:23 PM
NewsPeter Regin was the lone goal scorer for Chicago in a 2-1 loss to the New York Rangers on Thursday night.
ImpactRegin's goal came with just 12 seconds remaining in the third period and while it had no impact on the final result, it was enough to break Cameron Talbot's shutout bid. Ben Smith and Brent Seabrook picked up assists on the goal.
Regin skates with Kane at Hawks' practice | 02/27/2014 12:28 PM
NewsPeter Regin skated with Patrick Kane during Wednesday's practice.
ImpactRegin played with Kris Versteeg and Brandon Saad in his Chicago debut prior to the Olmpic break because Kane was absent to attend his grandfather's funeral. "He seems very skilled just with little plays, how to draw defensemen's sticks in and get the puck to you with a little bit more time and space," Kane said. If the pairing works out then Regin could get a significant fantasy value boost.
Regin centered Hawks' second line | 02/08/2014 12:28 PM
NewsPeter Regin, who was acquired Thursday night from the Islanders, centered the Blackhakws' second line between Brandon Saad and Kris Versteeg.
ImpactOf course the Hawks were short Patrick Kane, who left the team to attend his grandfather's funeral. It remains to be seen if Regin can hold on to this job, but if he does, he will certainly be worth keeping an eye on.
Hawks acquire Regin, Bouchard from Islanders | 02/07/2014 8:39 AM
NewsPeter Regin and Pierre-Marc Bouchard were acquired by Chicago from the New York Islanders on Thursday night for a fourth-round draft pick in 2014.
ImpactIn 44 games with the Islanders this season, Regin has produced two goals and seven points. There's a chance that he could see second-line action with Chicago at some point because the Blackhawks still need someone to fill that slot. However, his acquisition is mainly to add more depth for the remainder of the season.

NewsPeter Regin has not had a point in his last 16 games.
New York Newsday
ImpactThe Islanders have a lot of players slumping but no one as much as Regin. He has a goal and four points this season and obviously should not be on your fantasy team, nevermind being in your lineup.
Peter Regin a healthy scratch Saturday | 11/24/2013 8:42 AM
NewsPeter Regin was a healthy scratch on Saturday.
New York Newsday
ImpactRegin has only a goal and four points in 23 games but does have 18 penalty minutes. He has not picked up a point since October 26, a span of 12 games, so his benching cannot be seen as a surprise.

New York Newsday
ImpactRegin has five points in 12 games this season. That's not a bad start for him, but he's averaging just 12:46 minutes per game and we don't think he'll end up having much fantasy value in standard leagues.

NewsPeter Regin is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer and he may be permitted to test the waters.
Impact"It's disappointing," he said referring to his 2013 performance. "I love it here. (If I'm not back), it wouldn't be because I don't like the team or the city." Regin played in only 10 games in 2011-12, and 55 the year before. He was limited to 27 contests during the lockout-shortened campaign and he collected just three assists.

NewsPeter Regin is the only Senators forward on the active roster without a point.

NewsPeter Regin feels ready to rebound from two left shoulder surgeries in the past two seasons.
Impact"I'm past that, I have no pain, I have the same strength," Regin said. "I've been skating for five months. Playing in Switzerland gave me some confidence that I know I can play. Even though it's a different style of hockey on the big rinks, you still bump into each other. I knew I could handle that, from taking the bumps and hits over there." He played just 10 games last season. At training camp he has been skating on the third line with Zack Smith and Chris Neil.
