VEGAS (October 3, 2020) – Vegas Golden Knights General Manager Kelly McCrimmon announced today, October 3, that the team has signed goaltender Robin Lehner to a five-year contract extension worth an average annual value of $5,000,000.

Lehner, 29, started 16 games for the Golden Knights during the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs, posting a 9-7 record with a .917 save percentage and 1.99 goals-against average. He recorded his first career postseason shutout against Vancouver on August 23 and finished the playoffs with a league-high four shutouts. After being acquired by Vegas on February 24, Lehner won each of his three regular-season games, finishing with a 1.67 GAA and a .940 save percentage to go with one shutout. The Gothenburg, Sweden native also started 31 games with the Blackhawks during the 2019-20 season, posting a 16-10-5 record to go with a 3.01 goals-against average and a .918 save percentage.

Lehner has appeared in a total of 301 games and has a record of 116-120-45 to go with a 2.72 GAA and a .918 save percentage in his NHL career with the Blackhawks, Ottawa Senators, Buffalo Sabres and New York Islanders. Following the 2018-19 season, he was awarded the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy, which is awarded annually to the NHL player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to ice hockey and William M. Jennings Trophy, which is to the goaltenders having played a minimum of 25 games for the team with the fewest goals scored against it based on regular-season play, while with the New York Islanders.

Lehner’s contract might qualify as The Bargain of the Year – at least so far. And Jarry’s contract looks like a great deal for the Pens as well. The Panthers front office must be banging their heads against the wall seeing deals like this get made while they’re stuck with Bobrovsky $10M/year albatross

Agreed OTC. Those are both good contracts for the respective teams. Now all Vegas has to do is find a team not on Fleury’s no-trade list that is willing to take his contract. 2 years left at $7mil per for a soon-to-be 36 year old goalie…any Wings’ fans interested for a pick and a prospect?!

I posted this earlier in the “Rumor Time” thread, gb.

————————————

Hmmmm. Would the Knights be willing to give up their first rounder (#29) in exchange for the Wings taking Fleury (and his two-year, $7M/year contract) off their hands?

If the Wings got that pick, maybe they could package it with one or two second rounders to move up into the top 10 (hopefully the top eight). Then they could use their #4 pick on Drysdale and grab Askarov with the other. Right now he’s played three games in the KHL and has a .074 GAA and a .974 SV%.

Come on, Stevie. Make it happen.

————————————

I’m guessing the Wings are one of the 10 teams on Fleury’s no-trade list, but I wonder if he wouldn’t waive it if he got a personal appeal from Stevie Y.  Maybe something along the lines of: “We could really use your leadership here as we transition to a playoff team. And we’ll trade you at the deadline either this year or next if a playoff team asks for you. We’ll let you decide when.”

But, of course, as we all know “trades are hard.”  smile

“But we’re kicking the tires, too.”

When Stevie Y does it, I’m guessing it’s more like one kick then out comes the tire gauge to check the pressure and a coin to check the tread before he asks for the sales receipt to see how long ago they were purchased.  grin

Only if Vegas is the one giving up the pick and prospect to take Fluery.

No way no how should the Wings give up picks or prospects to acquire a goalie. No way Detroit should give up picks or prospects AND take on a significant contract.
