P-Bruins goalie Regan to have hip surgery

PROVIDENCE -- Providence Bruins goaltender and South Boston native Kevin Regan will miss the remainder of the season with a hip injury. He is scheduled to have surgery later this month.

The 25-year-old had a similar procedure on his other hip last spring. A product of the University of New Hampshire, Regan was selected by the Bruins in the ninth round (277th overall) in the 2003 draft.

During practice early this week, Regan told P-Bruins coach Rob Murray that the pain was so bad that he couldn’t finish practice. Regan's contract is up at the end of this season. He is 10-7-2 with a 2.84 goals-against average and a .901 save percentage in 22 career games for Providence.

As a result of Regan’s injury, the P-Bruins have signed former UMass-Lowell goaltender Nevin Hamilton to a professional tryout.
