He's the 76th Terrier to reach the NHL and joins Dad, Tom O’Regan, in the first BU father/son NHL duo. And, according to College Hockey Inc., O'Regan and Jake Guentzel of Nebraska-Omaha, who also made his NHL debut last night, are the 22nd and 23rd players who skated in the NCAA last season to make their NHL debut.
