Robin Lehner did not travel with the team to their game at Lake Tahoe on Saturday due to an upper-body injury. Golden Knights head coach Peter DeBoer said on Thursday "He's getting better day by day, and i expect him back sooner rather than later."
Lehner has missed five games, his last game played was on Feb 7 against the Los Angeles Kings. He was 3-1-1 with a 2.96 GAA and a .890 save % in his five games. Back on Oct 3 2020, Lehner signed a five-year, $25 million contract.
Robin Lehner will patrol the pipes in Game 1 against Chicago on Tuesday.
Lehner will start against his former club in favor of Las Vegas fan favorite Marc-Andre Fleury. The 29-year-old Lehner went 2-0-0 with a 2.89 GAA and .903 save percentage in his two round-robin starts.
Robin Lehner has been traded to the Las Vegas Golden Knights for an unknown return.
WOW! Lehner to the Knights was never on the known radar. He is the most talented goalie on the roster at this point in their careers. It is unknown who will see the playoffs starts at this time but the next couple of months should decide that.
Robin Lehner allowed four goals in the Blackhawks' 8-4 victory over the Flames on Saturday. He saved 38-42 shots against. Lehner improved his record to 16-9-5 with a 2.91 GAA and a .921 SV%.
Lehner again was asked to face a barrage of shots and came out victorious. Things easily could have gone the other way if he was not playing so well. Look for Lehner to either gain more playing time down the stretch or to be dealt to a contender. Either way his value should increase. Lehner ranks 37th in GAA and ninth in SV% that shows just how bad the defense in front of him has been.
Robin Lehner allowed four goals in the Blackhawks’ 5-3 loss to the Oilers on Tuesday. He saved 26-30 shots against. Lehner dropped his record to 15-9-5 with a 2.87 GAA and a .921 SV%.
Lehner has now dropped three straight outings and has allowed four goals in two of the three losses. He needs to get hot or he could be dealt at the trade deadline. His name has been out there in multiple rumors. Depending on his landing spot his value most likely will go up.
