Brent Regner (born May 17, 1989) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman playing for the Syracuse Crunch of the American Hockey League (AHL). He is a prospect for the Columbus Blue Jackets of the National Hockey League (NHL). During his major junior career in the Western Hockey League (WHL), he won a Memorial Cup in 2007 with the Vancouver Giants. He set the Giants' single-season record for points by a defenceman in 2008–09.

Playing career

Regner made his major junior debut with the Vancouver Giants of the WHL in 2005–06, appearing in one game. The following season, in 2006–07, he contributed six points in 64 games then added six points in the WHL playoffs en route to a 2007 Memorial Cup championship with the Giants. After improving to 47 points in 2007–08, Regner was drafted 137th overall, in the fifth round of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. Returning to the Giants for a third and final WHL season, he tallied a record-setting 67 points in 2008–09, surpassing teammate Jonathon Blum's record for points by a Giants defenceman set the previous season. (The mark was broken the following season by Kevin Connauton's 72 points.)

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 AHL for his professional rookie season in 2009–10.
