For Regan, Home is Where the Hockey Is
Wilmington, MA -- It is quite common for all young athletes to dream of playing professionally in their respective sports while wearing the proud colors of the hometown team.

For Kevin Regan, his own Black & Gold fantasy is finally within his grasp.

A local boy from South Boston, Regan has launched himself into the spotlight at this year's Bruins Development Camp, catching glimpses of awe from star struck fans at the unlikely fortune of this Boston born skater.

“It’s like a (local) kid being in the Red Sox locker room at Fenway,” said Regan during the Bruins recent Development Camp. “That’s what it is to me.

“I’m a big hockey fan and I was a Bruins guy growing up, so I don’t take it for granted.”

For sure, Regan is no newcomer to the New England sports scene.

The University of New Hampshire phenom just completed his final year of eligibility for the Wildcats, posting school records in saves, save percentage, games played and wins on his way to receiving the Walter Brown Award as the best American born college hockey player in New England.

“I had an awesome four years up there and I wouldn’t give that back for anything,” said the B’s second year camper. “I had a great coaching staff and it’s a great school and a great situation.

“At the same time, they prepared me well and I’m getting older so it’s definitely time to move on and I don’t have any regrets.”

Regan helped lead UNH to a 2008 Hockey East Regular Season title before being ousted in the playoffs (after three overtimes) by the eventual NCAA champion Boston College team, but his performance in that semi-final coupled with his outstanding senior season left everyone in the league admiring the talent, skill and leadership of this young player.

Having come to Wilmington last summer to train with the B’s, Regan is one player who truly understands the importance and positive affect that the week with the team can have on a player’s game.

“For one, it’s a good way to get your summer started,” said the goalie. “You realize what they expect from you conditioning wise, off the ice, and they have a lot of guys from Providence here.

“So, there’s a lot to do to get to that next level.”

One way or another, even if they missed him on the college circuit, this goalie from Southie’s poise and strength in net are features that Bruins fans can eagerly look forward to seeing in the pros.
