Kevin Regan, who spent the past season playing in the Central Hockey League, has signed with the EIHL’s Fife Flyers for the 2013-2014 season, according to British Ice Hockey.
A lifelong Boston Bruins fan, he was drafted by the Bruins in the ninth round (277 overall) of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. After graduating from the University of New Hampshire, he spent the 2008–09 and 2009–10 played two seasons playing in the American Hockey League and the ECHL. He was signed by the Providence Bruins in 2008, where he initially served as a backup to Tuukka Rask. While in the AHL he was hampered by hip injuries, including a torn labrum, that required multiple surgeries. He was briefly called up to Boston in January 2009 but did not see any action.
After two seasons with Italy’s Valpellice, Regan joined the CHL’s Wichita Thunder, posting 13 wins and 10 losses in 27 games. The signing replaces former Edmonton Oilers prospect Bryan Pitton in Fife, who recently joined the CHL’s Allen Americans.
