History

2004-05: As a freshman at the University of New Hampshire, Regan was slated to back up junior Jeff Pietrasiak, but earned increased playing time as the season progressed. He was named Hockey East Rookie of the Month in February 2005 and was named Hockey East Rookie of the Week on five different occasions. He was also selected for the Hockey East All-Rookie Team and the Hockey East All-Academic team.

2005-06: Sharing net duty with senior Jeff Pietrasiak, Regan improved overall statistically for a solid, though not spectacular season. He earned his first career shutout in November 2005 and was named Hockey East Defensive Player of the Week on two occasions. He also excelled academically and for the second season straight was selected for the Hockey East All-Academic Team.

2006-07: As a junior, Regan took over the reigns as the Wildcats’ starting goaltender and earned career highs in nearly every goaltending category.  He finished third in the division with a 2.06 GAA and led all Hockey East goaltenders with a .935 save percentage. Regan won numerous player of the week honors and had the highest winning percentage among all Hockey East goaltenders. He was a finalist for the Walter Brown Award and earned a spot on Hockey East’s All-Academic Team for the third consecutive season.

2007-08: Regan capped off an impressive college career at the University of New Hampshire with another outstanding season, one that left his name all over the school’s record books. The personal awards continue to pile up, including the Walter Brown Award and Hockey East player of the year, as well as becoming one of the top ten finalists for the Hobey Baker Award.

Signed an entry level contract with the Bruins.

In 21 games with Providence (AHL), he posted a 9-7-2 record with a 2.99 goals against average and a .896 save percentage, not his best numbers to date. He also appeared in two games with Gwinnett (ECHL), splitting them 1-1, and another four games with Alaska (ECHL), also splitting those games 2-2; he had good numbers in his ECHL stretch.

Talent Analysis

An average sized netminder, the native of South Boston has succeeded in large part thanks to great mental toughness. He is fiercely competitive and a dedicated, hard worker. An athletic goaltender that relies on his reflexes, Regan is technically sound and rarely caught out of position. He appears confident in the net and has good awareness. Regan is also advanced both in his ability to play the puck and control rebounds

Future

A hard-working player with all of the intangibles.
