Nørregaard is son of former Danish footballer Klaus Nørregaard. In November 2018, he was appointed manager for the under-19 team of FC Copenhagen. In October 2020, he was appointed caretaker manager of the club.
Nørregaard started his career in Kjøbenhavns Boldklub (KB) and was in 1999 promoted to the first team, F.C. Copenhagen (FCK). He played for FCK until 2005 most famous for his 91st-minute goal against the archrivals Brøndby IF at Brøndby Stadium in the so-called "championship final" in 2003. Since then, fans of F.C. Copenhagen have dubbed Brøndby stadium, "Hjalte Park." The same year he was awarded as "cup fighter" after the win in the Danish Cup. He got a total of 120 matches, 17 goals and 3 Danish championships in 2001, 2003 and 2004, before moving to Dutch SC Heerenveen.
The stay at Heerenveen was no success, as coach Gertjan Verbeek thought he was a supporting striker. After only one year in Heerenveen, he moved back to FCK for competing in their UEFA Champions League 2006-07 campaign.
Nørregaard was called up for the January 2007 league national team, which played 3 unofficial national team games in the United States, El Salvador and Honduras in January 2007, by national team manager Morten Olsen. He played in all three games of the tour, including a 3–1 loss to the United States national team and a 1–0 loss to El Salvador.
In September 2008, after some strong league performances he was called up for the Danish national team, for the second time, for the matches against Hungary and Portugal to help Denmark in their 2010 FIFA World Cup qualification campaign. However, in the match against Hungary, he wasn't even picked for substitution.
On 4 January 2011, Nørregaard signed a deal with the Danish football club AGF. The contract is for three and a half years.
