Peter Regin’s already disastrous season has gone from bad to worse.

Now, it could be over.

The Senators centre, who crashed into the boards in a collision with Joey Crabb in the third period of the club’s 1-0 win over the Maple Leafs on Saturday, is likely done for the season and could require surgery.

While coach Cory Clouston wouldn’t confirm, it’s believed Regin suffered a shoulder injury. The Senators will have to recall another forward from Binghamton on Tuesday.

“There will be more tests (Tuesday to see about surgery) and there is a definite chance that he might be done for the season,” said Clouston.

It’s been a tough, disappointing season for Regin. After a strong finish to 2009-10, he was expected to be one of the club’s top players this season, but has only three goals and 14 assists in 56 games.

Regin had played better of late, however.

“He was starting to make some strides,” said Clouston.

“His play was starting to improve and that gives us about eight or nine bodies out right now. I know it’s cliche, but it does present an opportunity for a young guy to come up. These are the cards we’re dealt with, we’ve just got to play with them.”

Captain Daniel Alfredsson (back), C Jesse Winchester (knee), along with Ds Chris Campoli and Sergei Gonchar, both out with lower body injuries, skated before the skills competition Monday.

None will be ready to play against Florida Wednesday.

There’s a chance Campoli and Gonchar could play on the weekend, while Clouston hinted Alfredsson could be out longer.

“It might be the end of the week, it might be a lot longer than that,” said Clouston. “We’ll wait and see the next few days how things progress.”
