A couple of weeks ago the Senators made a small move, resigning Peter Regin to a contract worth a little bit less than what he had previously been making. It is a one-way contract and if he gets himself healthy this summer, he should be in the lineup come October.
Where does he fit? With Jakob Silfverberg, Mark Stone and Mika Zibanejad all pushing for roster spots, not to mention the full roster the Sens had in the playoffs, is there a spot for Regin to play?
Regin should be in the prime of his career. He just turned 27 years old and has been in the league a couple of seasons now. He is a puck possession player with some defensive ability and decent playmaking ability. Outside of one hot streak a couple years ago in the playoffs, he has never put up big numbers at the NHL level. So where does he go?
