Peter Regin’s time with SC Langenthal has come to an end.
According to the club website, Regin is done playing for the Swiss National League B side after scoring five points in four games.
His departure coincides with the return of Jeff Campbell, the team’s leading scorer from a year ago that missed the last two weeks to injury.
Regin signed on with Langenthal after a tough 2011-12 campaign that saw him miss 72 games with a shoulder injury.
Despite the down year, Ottawa re-signed the Danish forward to a one-year, $800,000 deal this past offseason.
If his brief time in Switzerland was any indication, Regin looked to regain some of the form posted in 2009-10, when he appeared in 75 games for the Sens and posted 13G-16A-29PTS, leading the team in playoff goalscoring.
Finally, here’s the delightful Google translate of his departure from Langenthal:
The Danish international and NHL player Peter Regin on Wednesday to fly back to Ottawa. Regin, who flew in the short term as Campbell’s replacement had to Switzerland, in the four games, scored five points and easily inserted into the team from the start. Regin was with his performances bring a certain flair to Langenthal NHL and was short with his appearances enriching.
The SC Langenthal thanks Peter Regin for the spontaneous, non-obvious and wishes him for yet another, uncertain course of the season in the NHL all the best and much success.
I can only hope that, when my time at PHT comes to an end, the tenure will also be described as both spontaneous and non-obvious.
