(UPDATE 5:31 PM)- Bruce Garrioch has quoted Asst GM Tim Murray saying that Regin is fine and will be good to go for the main camp.  Our first non-story of the 2011/2012 season!

For the second straight season, the Ottawa Senators have been hit by a preseason injury.  According to a report in the Ottawa Sun, Sens forward Peter Regin injured his ankle in a pick up soccer game.

There was no immediate word on the severity of the injury but he did have to be carried off the field by a couple of teammates.

The second line centre position is one of the most talked about battles heading into training camp for the upcoming season.  If Regin was to miss any significant time, it would certainly open the door for guys like Zibanejad, Da Costa and potentially AHL Star Corey Locke.

Regin has spent much of the offseason rehabbing a shoulder injury he suffered late last season.

Here's hoping the injury isn't severe and Regin is ready to go for training camp.
