Since sustaining a knee injury in Game 1 of the Kings' second-round series with the Anaheim Ducks, the veteran rearguard has been on the mend, working towards reaching appropriate fitness. 

Remarkably healthy through 21 grueling postseason games, the Kings now boast formidable insurance at the back end.

Kings' coach Sutter says Regehr will 'probably play' Game 2 vs. Rangers

by Jun 6, 2:22 PM

Los Angeles Kings head coach Darryl Sutter updated the status of injured defenseman Robyn Regehr on Friday.

Regehr, who missed the last 14 games with a knee injury suffered in Game 1 of the second round, seems likely to return to the lineup on Saturday for Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final.

Regehr's return creates a logjam on the blue line for Los Angeles. Matt Greene appeared to struggle with New York's speed in Game 1 and could be the prime candidate to watch from the press box with Regehr on the ice.

Kings' Regehr ready to play Game 1 of Stanley Cup Final if called upon

by Jun 4, 1:05 PM

Los Angeles Kings defenseman Robyn Regehr skated with the team in advance of Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday, and could play provided he's officially cleared and coach Darryl Sutter chooses to reinsert him into the lineup after a month-long absence.

"I think it's going to be a coach's decision," Regehr told Katie Strang of ESPN.com. "I think that I've been working hard at getting back to feeling like I can be ready to roll. At this point it's whatever Darryl would like me to be. If he feels he would like me in the lineup I feel like I'm ready to go. If he wants to stay with the same lineup that was successful in Game 7 against Chicago I totally understand that, too."

Regehr, who injured his knee in Game 1 of the Kings' second-round series with the Anaheim Ducks, registered three goals and 11 assists while averaging just under 19 minutes per game in the regular season. His ice time fell to 17:12 in eight playoff games, wherein he recorded two assists.

Kings' Regehr on being injured: 'You're a little bit of a hobbit sometimes'

by May 30, 4:41 PM

The Los Angeles Kings have been without veteran defenseman Robyn Regehr since May 3rd when he sustained a knee injury.

Regehr told Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider that being injured is a tough process to go through. 

It’s difficult when you’re injured because you’re on a different schedule and program than a lot of the normal guys, the playing guys, so you kind of feel you’re a little bit of a hobbit sometimes, so it’s nice to be back around the guys.

Although he has been skating and spending some more time with the team, he won't be in the lineup any time soon. "Not ready yet," he said, "still got some work to do."

He practiced with the team participating in line rushes and told Rosen, "[It] feels good, it's a lot better than doing them by yourself."

Regehr has been cleared for contact by the Kings but won't draw into the lineup for Game 6 against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Kings' Regehr skating, remains without timetable for return

by May 26, 4:57 PM

Los Angeles Kings defenseman Robyn Regehr skated with teammates for the second straight day, but his recovery from a knee injury remains without a date to strive toward.

Regehr spoke with reporters following the Kings' final preparations for Game 4 of the Western Conference final.

"I can't put a timeline on it because it just depends if things keep going along well, then we can kind of gauge that," Regehr said, via Curtis Zupke of NHL.com. "I've been making steps forward this whole time, so far, I'm really hoping to avoid any sort of regression."

On the ice for 87 games this season, the 34-year-old bottom-pairing back-peddler was a mainstay in Los Angeles' lineup before being injured in Game 1 of the Kings' second-round series with Anaheim.
