Golden Knights Injury Update

BREAKING: Robin Lehner To Miss Entire 2022-23 Season



Robin Lehner, Vegas Golden Knights

Vegas Golden Knights starting goaltender Robin Lehner will miss the entire 2022-23 season as he will require hip surgery. The announcement was made by the Golden Knights via Twitter on Thursday morning.

A timeline for Lehner’s recovery, as well as a date for his surgery, will be determined at a later date.

Lehner is entering his fourth year with the Golden Knights. He struggled in 2021-22 after taking over the starting role from Marc-Andre Fleury full-time. Last season he posted a .907 save percentage and a 2.83 goals against average in 44 games played.

He has three seasons remaining on his contract with the VGK, which pays him $5 million per season. Lehner will most certainly be placed on LTIR by the VGK. The Golden Knights can use this cap space to re-sign Nicolas Hague and Jake Leschyshyn, who remain unsigned restricted free agents.

All the best to Lehner as he goes through a challenging time in his hockey career.

The Golden Knights have Laurent Brossoit, Logan Thompson, and Michael Hutchinson as other goaltenders on the team.
