Third-Year Providence Goalie Heads to ECHL

Providence, RI - The Providence Bruins, in their 18th year in the American Hockey League, announced that the National Hockey League's Boston Bruins have reassigned goaltender Kevin Regan to the Reading Royals of the ECHL. With the move, the P-Bruins now have 23 players on their roster, including 14 forwards, seven defensemen and two goaltenders.

Regan, 25, did not appear in Providence's only game this season, though he dressed as a back-up behind net-minder Dany Sabourin. The native of South Boston, Massachusetts, is in his third professional season but is still considered an AHL rookie after going 9-7-2 with a 2.99 goals-against-average and an .896 save percentage in 21 games for Providence last season. Regan also appeared in six ECHL games in 2008-09, compiling a 2-2-0 record and 2.47 GAA for the Alaska Aces, along with a 1-1-0 mark and 2.50 GAA as a member of the Gwinnett Gladiators.

The goalie's first pro experience came at the end of the 2007-08 regular season following a standout senior season for the University of New Hampshire Wildcats. After signing an Amateur Tryout Agreement on April 9, 2008, Regan recorded his only professional shutout in his pro debut three nights later against the Manchester Monarchs.

In his young pro career, Regan has posted a 13-10-2 overall record, one shutout, a 2.75 GAA and a .905 save percentage in 28 games. Regan was taken 277th overall by Boston in round nine of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.

The P-Bruins have a full weekend ahead with three games in three nights beginning Friday at the Dunkin' Donuts Center at 7:05 p.m. against the Hartford Wolf Pack. The evening marks a Magnet Schedule giveaway. On Saturday, Providence travels to Maine to faceoff with the Portland Pirates at 7 p.m. The P-Bruins host the Wolf Pack again on Sunday at 4:05 p.m. for a Family Game, where fans can buy one ticket, hot dog and soda for one low price.
