The Golden Knights revealed on Thursday that goalie Robin Lehner will require hip surgery and will likely miss the whole 2022–2023 season. Lehner’s return wasn’t given a specific timetable by Vegas.
Lehner’s season in 2021–22 was similarly cut short by a lower body ailment that necessitated surgery in April. Vegas was competing at the moment for a playoff spot but would ultimately lose, mostly due to Lehner’s unavailability.
Lehner started his NHL career with the Senators and has since played for the Sabres, Islanders, and Blackhawks. Chicago traded him to Vegas in 2020, and he has been there ever since.
Lehner started 44 games for the Golden Knights last season after Marc-Andre Fleury relinquished the starting position. His 23 victories for Vegas rank second in his career behind his 25 victories for the Islanders in 2018–19.
On the depth chart, Laurent Brossoit and Logan Thompson are the next players up with Lehner out. Due to Lehner’s injury, Thompson started the season as the primary starter, but Brossoit has more NHL experience.
