Richard Regehr (born January 17, 1983) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman currently playing for Modo Hockey of the Swedish Hockey League (SHL).

Early life[edit]

Regehr was born in Bandung, Indonesia to Canadian Mennonite missionaries. They later returned to Canada where he grew up in Rosthern, Saskatchewan.

Playing career[edit]

Regehr was signed as a free agent on July 6, 2004 as an undrafted player by the Calgary Flames, the team where his brother Robyn was playing. During the 2004–05 NHL lockout Richie Regehr played for the Lowell Lock Monsters, who were the American Hockey League affiliate of the Flames. In the 2005–06 season, he was sent to the Flames' new farm team, Omaha Ak-Sar-Ben Knights. After injuries to defencemen Rhett Warrener and Roman Hamrlík late in 2005, Regehr was called up to the Flames.

In his first National Hockey League game on December 29, 2005, he dressed with his brother Robyn and scored an assist on the game-winning goal.[1] After only 3 games the Flames sent him back down to the Ak-Sar-Ben Knights, but on January 7 he was once again recalled. Regehr was recalled by Calgary again on February 2, 2006.

Regehr replaced Knights teammate Mark Giordano (who was recalled to the Calgary Flames) at the 2006 Canadian AHL All-Star team. He registered a goal and an assist in the All-Star game.

In the 2007–08 season he moved to Germany began play for the Deutsche Eishockey Liga club Frankfurt Lions. The following year, he signed with Eisbären Berlin.

After four impressive seasons with Berlin, Regehr left to sign a two-year contract in the Swedish Elitserien with Modo Hockey on April 25, 2012.[2]
