Vegas Golden Knights goaltender Robin Lehner has been accused of fraud by a major lender in his ongoing bankruptcy case.
In December, Lehner filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy claiming $5.1 million of assets and $27.3 million in liabilities.
According to Daniel Kaplan of The Athletic, creditor Aliya Growth Fund is requesting Lehner to pay back $4.75 million and is also accusing Lehner and his wife Donya of "making materially false and misleading representations" with their money.
The debt that the Lehner family has is related to a Phoenix-based solar technology company SolarCode LLC, a reptile farm in Plato, Missouri, a 20 percent stake in a reptile and avian zoo in Punta Gorda, Florida, and other personal property, according to the LasVegas Review-Journal.
Lehner is currently out for the season, removing from hip surgery that he had in the offseason. His current salary is that of $5 million over five years. Two years remain on his current contract as the 31-year-old goaltender looks to come back to the NHL next season.
