from Ben Gotz of the Las Vegas Review-Journal,
Golden Knights goaltender Robin Lehner, three days after tweeting about issues with player health and medical treatment, said Tuesday he has had productive calls with the NHL and NHL Players Association about potential changes.
Lehner said he tried other avenues before taking to Twitter on Saturday, but wasn’t seeing results. He said he’s excited after the initial talks and now plans to push for progress behind closed doors.
“All I’m asking is to be a part of that change, that discussion to fix some of the things for us as players,” Lehner said. “I don’t want to see any player suffer in silence anymore.”
