Playing career

Selected 19th overall in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft by the Colorado Avalanche, Regehr was traded to the Calgary Flames with René Corbet, Wade Belak and a draft pick for Chris Dingman and Theoren Fleury before he even played a game with the Avalanche.

Regehr's strong performance in the 2003–04 NHL season and in the playoffs netted the young defender international play with Team Canada, where he was part of the team which won the 2004 World Cup of Hockey. He was also selected for Team Canada at the 2006 Winter Olympics. He is currently one of the Flames' three alternate captains, known for his physical presence on the ice and his strong work ethic in the defensive zone.

Personal life

Regehr was born in Brazil to Canadian Mennonite missionaries. They later spent time in Indonesia and then returned to Canada where he grew up in Rosthern, Saskatchewan. His brother Richie also played briefly for the Calgary Flames. Robyn is the only current player in the NHL who was born in Brazil.

In 1999, Regehr had to overcome personal tragedy in a deadly automobile accident. On July 4, near his hometown of Rosthern, another car hit Regehr's Chevy Nova head-on. Two people in the other car died, and both of Regehr's tibias were fractured. Regehr put himself through a strict rehabilitation program and ended up playing 58 games in the 1999–2000 season.
