The Sabres have recalled Robin Lehner from his conditioning stint with Rochester (AHL).
Lehner only appeared in one game with the Sabres this season, back on October 8th. He stopped 11 of 12 shots before leaving the game with a high ankle sprain. During his conditioning stint he went 1-2-0 with a 3.36 GAA and .888 SV% in three starts. He will likely start on of the Sabres’ back-to-back games on Friday and Saturday.
Lehner is more than six weeks into a 6-10 week timetable. Many reports suggest that Lehner suffered a setback, but head coach Dan Bylsma disagreed. “I don’t think I would call it a setback," Bylsma said. "He got to the point where he started upping his rehab level and that’s where he had to back off of that a bit.” Lehner is reportedly still wearing a walking boot and will need more time before he returns to the crease.
Lehner is expected to miss 6-10 weeks with a high-ankle sprain.
Lehner suffered the injury in the Sabres’ season opener on Thursday. He will miss at least a month and a half, but could be out for 10 weeks. In the meantime the Sabres will go with Chad Johnson as their starter, but don’t be surprised if they make a trade for another goalie.
Lehner (leg) is expected to miss an extended period of time.
Halfway through his first game with his new team, Lehner suffered a fluky injury that is going to force him to “miss some time” according to Sabres head coach Dan Bylsma. Lehner went behind the net to play the puck and when he returned to the crease and went into the butterfly, he suffered a leg injury. Lehner was unable to put any weight on his leg and was spotted wearing a walking boot on his right foot after the game. Chad Johnson will take over as the Sabres netminder in the meantime.
Lehner will make his Sabres regular season debut on Thursday.
Lerner will make his Buffalo regular season debut after starting four preseason games that yielded modest results—he was 1-2-0 with a 3.32 GAA and .884 SV% in 199 preseason minutes. The 24-year-old comes into 2015-16 with a career 2.88 GAA and .914 SV% and a big task ahead of him. Buffalo ranked 29th in the NHL with a 3.28 team GAA last year. On paper they are a better team, but they need better goaltending and it starts with Lehner.
The Sabres acquired Robin Lehner and David Legwand from the Senators for a 2015 1st round pick (21st overall).
Lehner, 23, fell behind Craig Anderson and Andrew Hammond at the end of 2014-15 and with two years left on his deal, the Senators decided to ship him to Buffalo. With the Sabres, Lehner has a shot to be their everyday starter. He was 9-12-3 with a 3.02 GAA and .905 SV% last year and has posted a 2,88 GAA and .914 SV% in 86 career NHL games.
