Regehr suffers upper-body injury in win

Robyn Regehr logged a total of 6:27 in Los Angeles’ 6-4 win over St. Louis on Thursday. His final shift ended 4:54 into the second period, according to the game’s play by play log.

“He blocked a shot and played six minutes and did not return,” Darryl Sutter said after the game. “Tried it and did not return after that.”

Regehr was not credited with a blocked shot in the victory – not that that should discount Sutter’s information – though he did compile four hits. In the second intermission, a Kings PR representative emailed reporters to say that he suffered an upper-body injury and was not expected to return.

Based on several observations, there’s the possibility – not certainty – that the injury could be related to Regehr’s hand.

Again, these aren’t confirmations that the injury was a hand injury. More on Regehr’s status will be learned in the coming days.
