Impressions on his play this year
: There's not too much to say about O'Regan's one-game call-up for Buffalo as he did nothing worth noting. The 5'10" 180 lb. forward came over in the Evander Kane trade to the San Jose Sharks and has ties to Buffalo Sabres captain Jack Eichel and forward Evan Rodrigues as fellow Boston University alum. That Terriers line of Eichel, Rodrigues and O'Regan combined for 182 points in 2014-15 and led them to the NCAA championship game.
O'Regan has played well in Rochester since the trade with 26 goals and 37 assists in 88 games so it wouldn't be a bad idea for the Sabres organization to keep him in the fold in that role. O'Regan is Group-6 free agent meaning he's a player at least 25 yrs. old who has completed three or more professional seasons and played in less than 80 NHL games. He's free to sign with any team.
Questions moving forward
: Would he be interested in another one-year/two-way contract? Would the Sabres be interested in that?
