No Regehr update from Sutter

Robyn Regehr’s final shift came midway through the first period. After he was on the receiving end of a Teemu Selanne hit with 10:34 remaining in the period, he did not draw into the play by play log over the remainder of the game.

After the team’s public relations staff responded to an inquiry by saying that he was injured during the first period and was not expected to return, Darryl Sutter was asked if he could provide an update on the defenseman who logged only 3:32 of ice time.

“No, other than he left the bench in the second period and did not return,” Sutter replied.

More information will be revealed in the coming days, though with both Regehr and Mitchell battling injuries, defenseman Jeff Schultz could draw into the lineup if needed for Monday’s Game 2. Schultz has not played with the Kings since the preseason but was recalled earlier in the week and posted 13 points (2-11=13) and a plus-10 rating in 67 games with AHL-Manchester. The 28-year-old’s best season came in 2009-10 when he posted 23 points (3-20=23) and a plus-50 rating in 73 games with the Washington Capitals.
