===Vancouver Giants===
 
After completing two years of midget hockey with the Fort Saskatchewan Rangers, Regner debuted at the [[junior ice hockey|junior]] level in the 2005–06 season.

Despite the loss, the Giants went on to the [[2007 Memorial Cup]], qualifying as the pre-determined tournament host team. In the national tournament, Vancouver and Medicine Hat met again in the final, with the Giants winning 3–1.

In the subsequent off-season, Regner was signed by the [[Columbus Blue Jackets]] to an entry-level contract on July 2, 2009. He was assigned to their minor league affiliate, the [[Syracuse Crunch]] of the [[American Hockey League|AHL]] for his professional rookie season in [[2009–10 AHL season|2009–10]].
Playing in his second full WHL season, Regner improved to 47 points in 72 games.
