O'Regan was waived by the Golden Knights on Monday, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
Vegas sent 10 players to the waiver wire, as the team pares down its roster ahead of Thursday's season opener versus Anaheim. O'Regan is typically good for a random start or two at the top level each season.
O'Regan signed a one-year contract with the Golden Knights on Sunday.
O'Regan enjoyed a solid season with AHL Hartford last year, as he notched 11 goals and 27 assists through 62 games. The Golden Knights are deep and serious contenders for the upcoming season, so O'Regan likely won't have a role with the big club unless the team gets the injury bug. The 26-year-old is expected to begin the year with AHL San Antonio.
O'Regan agreed to terms on a contract with New York on Monday.
The specifics of O'Regan's deal with the Rangers have yet to be revealed, but it's probably safe to assume he'll be playing on a short-term contract. The 25-year-old forward will likely spend most, if not all, of the upcoming campaign with New York's minor-league affiliate, so there's no reason for fantasy owners to have him on their radars.
O'Regan was reassigned to AHL Rochester on Wednesday.
The Sabres didn't use the promising center in Tuesday's game against the Flyers, but perhaps they should have, as the team ended up with a 5-2 road loss. O'Regan will pick up where he left off with the AHL's Amerks, having posted 18 goals and 34 points over 53 games this season.
O'Regan was called up from AHL Rochester on Tuesday.
Following the trade deadline, the league afforded teams four standard recalls, so O'Regan gets bumped right back up to Buffalo. The 25-year-old has skated in 25 games in his NHL career, racking up just five points. Though he was recalled, it's unclear whether or not the German will suit up in Tuesday's tilt against the Flyers.
O'Regan was returned to AHL Rochester on Monday, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.
As noted by Hamilton, the NHL will afford teams only four standard recalls once the 3 p.m. ET trade deadline passes, meaning the Sabres will have to carefully strategize future call-ups for O'Regan or any other player currently serving the AHL's Amerks. The German-born center has appeared in 25 games at the top level, with his five points benefiting only the Sharks from 2016-18.
O'Regan has been brought up from Rochester of the AHL.
O'Regan has 34 points in 53 games with Rochester, though he was called up due to the Sabres only having 12 active forwards on the roster. O'Regan has yet to play an NHL game this season. He has five points throughout 24 games in his NHL career.
O'Regan, acquired by the Sabres in last season's Evander Kane deal, has four goals and six points through eight games for Rochester of the AHL this season.
O'Regan won the AHL Rookie of the Year award two seasons ago with the San Jose Barracuda, but his fine scoring touch hasn't kicked in during limited auditions in the NHL. He's also getting overshadowed by some of the Sabres' bigger-name prospects in an organization that's full of them. Still, O'Regan has put up 104 points in 120 AHL games and at some point he's going to get some run with the parent club. We'll also mention that he's a former college teammate of Jack Eichel, so perhaps a role on Captain Jack's line is the end game if everything worked out perfectly for O'Regan.
O'Regan hasn't recorded a point through two preseason games.
O'Regan's vying for a bottom-six role with Buffalo, but he's competing against veterans along with strong young talents such as Tage Thompson. The 24-year-old will need to turn things around quickly this preseason to avoid being demoted to AHL Rochester.
O'Regan signed a one-year, two-way contract worth $874,125 with the Sabres on Sunday.
O'Regan was part of the return for a trade of Evander Kane. The 24-year-old played in just two games with the Sabres, recording zero points and a plus-1 rating. He thrived with AHL Rochester instead, lighting the lamp six times and mustering nine helpers. The Sabres added three more forwards -- Vladimir Sobotka, Patrik Berglund and Tage Thompson -- in a trade with St. Louis, so it'll be tough to crack the lineup this year as well.
O'Regan was tendered a qualifying offer from the Sabres on Monday.
O'Regan saw action in 21 games this past season, though only two of those were with Buffalo after being traded from San Jose back in February. Despite the limited number of showings, O'Regan is still just 24 years old and has time to develop into a more consistent threat at the NHL level, so the organization was willing to tender him. Monday's qualifying offer should keep the 2012 fifth-round pick in Buffalo for his first full season as a Sabre.
O'Regan was reassigned to AHL Rochester on Sunday.
O'Regan suited up for two games in his first stint with the Sabres, posting zero points and a plus-1 rating. With four days in between games, though, it's best that the 24-year-old continues logging game action. His next chance for NHL ice time is Thursday against the Maple Leafs.
O'Regan was recalled from AHL Rochester on Wednesday.
Following his trade from the Sharks on Feb. 26, O'Regan potted two goals in three games with the Amerks. As a hyped prospect, it might be in the best interest of the Sabres -- who certainly won't be making the playoffs -- to develop the German-born center at hockey's highest level. The Boston University product is an intriguing dynasty stash at this juncture, though he'll serve as a healthy scratch Wednesday when the Sabres take on the Flames.
O'Regan will report to AHL Rochester after being traded to the Sabres in a deal for Evander Kane on Monday, Bill Hoppe of the Times Herald reports.
This wasn't a given, considering that O'Regan had been playing for the Sharks on the NHL level and the Sabres certainly don't have as much talent as San Jose. However, at least for now, the 24-year-old will be playing for the AHL's Americans. A touted prospect, perhaps he will earn a call-up before the season ends.
O'Regan was traded along with two draft picks to Buffalo for Evander Kane on Monday, reports The Athletic's Pierre LeBrun.
O'Regan was a fifth-round pick in 2012 and played four years at Boston University, where he served as an assistant captain in his senior year. He's split time between the NHL and AHL this season, and at the time of the trade was AHL San Jose's third-leading scorer with 25 points in 31 games. In 19 games with the Sharks, he notched four assists while averaging 10 minutes per game. The 24-year-old forward is in the final year of his two-year deal and will likely get an audition with the big club, although he's not expected to be a big piece of the future. It's at least worth mentioning, though, that O'Regan spent a good chunk of his BU career with new teammate Jack Eichel.
The Sharks reassigned O'Regan to AHL San Jose on Thursday, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic Bay Area reports.
The Sharks activated Tomas Hertl off injured reserve in a corresponding move, so O'Regan will likely remain in the minors unless the big club is once again in need of reinforcements up front due to injury later this season. The 24-year-old forward has played well with AHL San Jose this campaign, racking up seven goals and 25 points in 30 contests.
O'Regan was recalled from AHL San Jose on Sunday, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic Bay Area reports.
After averaging 9:17 of ice time while suiting up seven straight games, O'Regan was sent down to minors Wednesday. Bringing him back up ahead of Sunday's game against the Sharks signals that Tomas Hertl (shoulder) likely isn't ready to play yet, but there's still a chance O'Regan is used just for depth.
O'Regan was returned to AHL San Jose on Wednesday, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic Bay Area reports.
O'Regan's demotion is likely temporary and can probably be chalked up to a cap-saving, paper-only transaction. The center figures to be back with the Sharks in time for Thursday's matchup versus Vancouver.
O'Regan was recalled Monday from AHL San Jose, per the AHL's official transaction list.
O'Regan will rejoin the big club following the All-Star break, but with the majority of San Jose's forwards healthy, it's unlikely he draws into the lineup immediately. Regardless, the 24-year-old has played well in the minors, totaling 22 points (seven goals, 15 assists) in 28 games, and his two-way game translates well to the NHL.
O'Regan was reassigned to AHL San Jose on Friday, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic Bay Area reports.
With the Sharks and the Barracuda sharing the same arena, the organization certainly takes full advantage of frequently moving players like O'Regan between leagues. It should also be noted, that it's possible the club is just reassigning the center on paper in order to save some cap space. Fantasy owners can likely expect the 23-year-old to get promoted back up to the NHL sooner rather than later.
