News: Regehr announced his retirement following Saturday's 4-1 win in the season finale against the Sharks, Elliott Teaford of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Impact: Regehr will turn 35 on April 19 and just finished off an injury-plagued campaign, which apparently was enough to convince him to hang up his skates. He tallied three goals and 13 points in 67 games in 2014-15, with most of his value to the Kings lying in his shot-blocking abilities rather than his offensive output. With Regehr out of the picture, youngster Brayden McNabb should have the opportunity to take on greater minutes with the Kings next season.

News: Regehr said he intends to retire after a 15-year NHL career. The defenseman made the announcement in the dressing room Saturday after the defending Stanley Cup champions' season ended with a 4-1 victory over the San Jose Sharks.
Impact: Regehr, who turns 35 next week, spent his first 11 seasons with the Calgary Flames before joining the Kings for the past 2 1/2 years and playing a major role in their standout defense. Regehr won a Stanley Cup ring with the Kings last summer despite appearing in only the first eight playoff games, missing time with a knee injury. He had three goals and 10 assists in 67 games this season. Regehr played for Canada at the 2006 Olympics and two world championships.
