The Senators announced this afternoon that they have re-signed Peter Regin to a one year one-way contract. Steve Lloyd was the first one with the financial terms...

Peter Regin joins us at 3:40. Has signed a new 1 year, 1 way contract with the #Sens. He made $1m last year, new deal is $800,000.

As lockers were being cleared out last Saturday, Regin made it clear he wanted to stay with the organization:

“Well my contract is done. But I hope we can get something done so I can get a shot at coming back here. I love it here and this is where I want to be, so hopefully we can work something out and I can get another shot at it.”

He also spoke to the real concerns about his health going forward:

“I’m still recovering, but it’s looking good. The surgery went well and the structure inside the shoulder and everything is good, so now I just have to get stronger. ... It was a different injury this time, so it wasn't the same. It was just unlucky it was the same body part...the same side so it looked bad that way. Ya I'm confident, the doctors are confident that everything looks good. So that shouldn't be a problem."

In Murray's year end presser he didn't telegraph what the organization was thinking on Regin, or many players for that matter. All he let on was that he had "decisions" to make on a number of players. The fact that a deal was done not a week later speaks very well to the organization recognizing and retaining value.

I haven't seen any compelling evidence the Senators are dabbling in #fancystats, however MacLean at least is teaching and emphasizing possession. Instead of pounding it up the boards on the break-out, he wants his forwards (often the center) swinging low through the slot to support the defenseman. With a roster largely the same as that under Clouston there was a huge improvement in possession metrics this season.

For a corsi monster like Regin, he has the oppurtunity to become very appreciated by the Paulrus...as long as he can stay healthy. Reducing the number of shots against (29th worst) next season can't fall only on the defense. Having another very capable two-way center will help in that department.
