Golden Knights' Robin Lehner: Won't play this season
Lehner will miss the entirety of the 2022-23 season due to pending hip surgery, the team announced Thursday.
Lehner was already in doubt for the start of training camp after having offseason shoulder surgery, but clearly the netminder is dealing with a more significant injury. With Lehner sidelined, the Knights will have to turn to either career-backup Laurent Brossoit, who is dealing with an undisclosed injury of his own, or up-and-comer Logan Thompson. While not yet official, Lehner will no doubt be placed on long-term injured reserve when the season starts to give Vegas some cap flexibility.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Robin Lehner: At risk of missing training camp
Lehner's (shoulder) timeline to be ready for the start of the 2022-23 season is "tight," Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
Lehner underwent shoulder surgery in May, and it's possible his recovery wipes out his participation in some or all of training camp. The Golden Knights have let him rehab his injury individually, though general manager Kelly McCrimmon anticipates the goalie will return to Vegas soon. His status for the start of the regular season will likely be determined later in the summer.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Robin Lehner: No timetable for return
Lehner will undergo shoulder surgery Wednesday and a timeline for his return is not yet clear, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Lehner missed 18 of the final 24 games of the season while dealing with various injuries. The 30-year-old netminder will have a full offseason to recover but a more specific return timeline won't be available until later. He went 23-17-2 with a .907 save percentage this season....

Golden Knights' Robin Lehner: Set for shoulder surgery
Lehner will undergo shoulder surgery and miss the rest of the season.
It was earlier reported -- and later refuted -- that Lehner would have season-ending knee surgery. As it turns out, the 30-year-old netminder will actually have surgery on his shoulder after he was originally injured Feb. 9 against Calgary. He finishes the season 23-17-2 with a 2.83 GAA and a .907 save percentage. Lehner should be ready for the start of next season's training camp, but more information on his status should be available after the procedure. In his absence, Logan Thompson and Jiri Patera are expected to handle the last three games of the regular season.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Robin Lehner: Expected to suit up Sunday
Coach Pete DeBoer expects Lehner (knee) to dress as the backup Sunday against the Sharks, Ben Gotz of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Logan Thompson will get the starting nod, but Lehner's evidently healthy enough to keep playing. Barring another update, Lehner should be dressed against San Jose, which would refute previous reports that he could miss the remainder of the season.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Robin Lehner: May not be done for season
When asked about a report that stated Lehner is set to undergo season-ending knee surgery, coach Pete DeBoer said "Not to my knowledge. It was a maintenance day today. I expect him at practice tomorrow. I expect him dressed on Sunday," Ben Gotz of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
This is definitely an odd situation, as several credible reporters came out with the news that Lehner would be done for the year only for DeBoer to refute those claims an hour later. For now, fantasy managers can tentatively expect Lehner to be available for Sunday's game against San Jose, but this is definitely a situation worth monitoring.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Robin Lehner: Undergoing season-ending surgery
Lehner is set to undergo season-ending knee surgery, ESPN.com's Emily Kaplan reports.
Lehner tried to battle through his knee injury, but according to Kaplan, his "body finally gave out," hence the decision to undergo season-ending surgery. The Golden Knights, who are still battling for a playoff spot, will now have to turn to Logan Thompson as their No. 1 option in net. Lehner will end the year having gone 23-17-2 while posting a 2.83 GAA and .907 save percentage through 44 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Robin Lehner: Pulled at odd time
Lehner allowed a goal on 13 shots in the first period of Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Capitals.
Lehner was solid in the first period, but Logan Thompson played the rest of the game. Head coach Pete DeBoer described it as a way to shift the momentum in the contest, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports. Perplexing decisions aside, Lehner did not pick up a result in this contest. He remains at 23-17-2 with a 2.83 GAA and a .907 save percentage in 44 contests. Given the Golden Knights' desperation in pursuit of a playoff spot, there's no predicting who might get the start in goal Sunday versus the Sharks.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Robin Lehner: Guarding cage Wednesday
Lehner will guard the home goal Wednesday versus the Capitals, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
Lehner has gone 2-2-1 with a 3.21 GAA and an .889 save percentage in his last five outings. The Golden Knights' playoff chances are getting thin, but head coach Pete DeBoer will ride with his starting netminder despite the recent struggles. The Capitals have racked up 33 goals in their last six games, so their explosive offense could be a challenge for Lehner to contest with.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Robin Lehner: Falls short against Devils
Lehner stopped 25 of 28 shots in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Devils.
Lehner returned from a one-game absence due to a personal matter, but he wasn't able to guide the Golden Knights to a much-needed win. The 30-year-old has gone 2-2-1 with 16 goals allowed in his last five games since returning from a lower-body injury. The Swede is at 23-17-2 with a 2.83 GAA and a .907 save percentage. It's unclear if head coach Pete DeBoer will try to ride with Lehner despite his slump or turn to Logan Thompson for Wednesday's game versus the Capitals.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Robin Lehner: First goalie to exit ice
Lehner was the first goalie to leave the ice at Monday's game-day skate, indicating he'll patrol the crease at home versus the Devils, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
With the Golden Knights needing every point they can get, it shouldn't come as a surprise to see Lehner getting the starting nod. In his last four appearances, the Swedish netminder has been inconsistent, as he posted a 2-1-1 record and 3.23 GAA that includes two outings in which he allowed five goals to find the back of the net....

Golden Knights' Robin Lehner: Practicing Monday
Lehner (personal) was back at practice Monday, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Lehner has traveled back to Vegas without the team to attend to a personal matter but has rejoined practice ahead of Monday's matchup with New Jersey. With the Golden Knights still needing to secure their place in the playoffs, Lehner will likely play the majority of the team's six remaining games, including potentially taking both ends of a back-to-back April 26 and 27 versus Dallas and Chicago, respectively....

Golden Knights' Robin Lehner: Not with team
Lehner has returned to Vegas due to a personal matter and will not play Saturday against Edmonton.
Saturday's game will be the final leg of Vegas' three-game trip to Canada and the team will host the Devils on Monday. It's unclear how long the team expects Lehner to be away but he'll miss at least one game. The 30-year-old netminder has allowed 13 goals in four appearances since returning from a 12-game absence.... See More ... See Less
