The Panthers waived Regner on Saturday, Harvey Fialkov of the Miami Herald reports. Regner will report to AHL Springfield in the likely event that he clears waivers. The 27 years old defenseman lacks experience at hockey's highest level, so keeping him in the minors where he'll presumably pick up substantial playing time is the best course of action.
Regner has been sent down to AHL Portland. Regner trades places with defensive prospect Michael Matheson, the team's first-round pick from 2012, ahead of Saturday's home game against the Jets. Regner has made his way into seven games at the NHL level this campaign but failed to land on the scoresheet and only mustered four PIM. He's an option for a future call-up if the Panthers need a change of pace.
Regner was recalled by the Panthers on Friday, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. Regner will likely provide insurance along the blue line for the Panthers, with the news that Steve Kampfer had ice on his knee Friday. If Kampfer were unavailable for Saturday's contest against the Penguins, Regner would presumably draw into the lineup in his place. However, it's quite possible the 26-year-old defenseman's stint with the parent club won't last long.
Brent Regner signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Panthers on Wednesday.
The Blue Jackets have not made a qualifying offer to Brent Regner, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
