Regin back to Bingo

The Ottawa Senators announced today that centre Peter Regin has been returned to the Binghamton Senators of the AHL. He should be in action tonight when the B-Sens host the Philadelphia Phantoms (farm team of the Philadelphia Flyers).

It's unclear at this moment whether or not Regin will be re-recalled after the All-Star Break, but it will likely depend on the injuries to Shean Donovan and Chris Neil. Whatever the case, however, Regin was certainly capable in his 10 minutes of play, and deserves another shot in the NHL.

The Sens' press release also listed the only four Danish-born players to have suited up in the NHL prior to Regin:
  1. Poul Popiel (Boston Bruins, 1965-66)
  2. Jannik Hansen (Vancouver Canucks, 2007-08)
  3. Frans Nielsen (New York Islanders, 2006-07)
  4. Mikkel Boedker (Phoenix Coyotes, 2008-09).
