SHARE Blackhawks recall Peter Regin to replace injured Sharp

With Patrick Sharp expected to miss at least three or four weeks with an apparent right knee injury, and with Daniel Carcillo still out for at least a few more weeks, the Blackhawks on Thursday recalled Peter Regin from Rockford to give them 12 healthy forwards.

Regin, who played 17 regular-season games and five playoff games with the Blackhawks last season after being acquired from the New York Islanders, was tied for the IceHogs’ team lead with 10 points (four goals, six assists) through 11 games this season. In 239 career NHL games with the Hawks, Islanders and Ottawa Senators, Regin has 23 goals and 43 assists.

With a $650,000 salary, Regin fits under the salary cap without the Hawks having to put Sharp or Carcillo on long-term injury reserve, though that possibility still exists.

Regin is a natural center, but can play wing, also, giving the Hawks some versatility as they try to cope without Sharp, who was injured in Montreal on Tuesday night.
