Richard Regehr (born January 17, 1983) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman currently playing for EC KAC of the Austrian Hockey League (EBEL). Regehr's older brother is former Calgary Flames defenseman Robyn Regehr.

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, joining Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL) club Frankfurt Lions. The following year, he signed with fellow DEL side Eisbären Berlin.

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

Regehr returned to Germany at the conclusion of his contract with Modo, signing a one-year deal with EHC München of the DEL on May 26, 2014.[3] He eventually stayed in München until the conclusion of the 2016–17 season. He had won back-to-back German championships with München in 2016 and 2017 and signed with EC KAC of the Austrian Hockey League in May 2017.[4]
