    Via SenatorsExtra.com: Peter Regin’s stay in a second-tier Swiss hockey league appears to be over. The web site for SC Langenthal says Regin’s stay was a temporary one while the team’s leading scorer from the previous year, Jeff Campbell, recovered from a concussion. Because anytime you have the opportunity to bring a Jeff Campbell (pictured above) back into the fold, you just have to make room. I mean, who wouldn’t want a 5’9” (his hair adds three inches to his height), 170 pounds, Tier II scoring phenom – 20 goals and 57 points in 45 GP – from Hensall, Ontario on their roster? Whatever the cost, I suppose. While the lack of lockout negotiations between the NHL and NHLPA will help ensure that Regin will have time to find another European team to catch on with, for him, it’s the latest in a series of setbacks that have plagued him for the past few years. Having only played in 10 games last season and 65 in the past two seasons, being able to get into games and demonstrate that he can be productive and remain healthy, is of the utmost importance to him because of his contract uncertainty with the Senators. In signing a one-year contract with the Sens this past summer, should the lockout wipe out the entire 2012/13 NHL season, Regin could conceivably enter the offseason as an unrestricted free agent; assuming of course, that the next CBA will not permit current contracts to slide in the event of a lost season. For some time, this blog has long been a proponent of Regin’s, so the possibility of watching him leave the organization with his value at its lowest point isn’t particularly appealing.
