Regehr, 32, was acquired by the Kings on April 1, in a trade with the Buffalo Sabres, who will receive two second round picks in the National Hockey League Draft from the Kings, one in 2014 and another in 2015.
In his first chance to meet the local media, the 6-3, 225-pound Canadian (born in Recife, Brazil) talked about his whirlwind past couple of days.
“Buffalo flew to Pittsburgh, that would’ve been April 1,” Regehr explained. “That night, we went out for dinner, and I was hearing from my agent (J.P. Barry) that something might be happening. He mentioned Los Angeles, and there were a couple of other teams we heard rumors about. But he then said it was Los Angeles. We talked a little bit about it, and the fit. I was asked to waive [his no movement clause] after dinner.”
