  • Sabres' Robin Lehner: Notches just five wins in first year as starter

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/10/16) Lehner, who battled an ankle injury two separate times this season, finishes the season with five wins in 21 appearances with a 2.47 goals-against average and .924 save percentage.

    After appearing in 36 and 25 games in each of his final two seasons with Ottawa, Lehner was supposed to break out with Buffalo after being anointed the team's starter. However, his season was derailed after a high ankle sprain suffered in the season opener, which kept him off the ice for weeks, and only to aggravate the ankle again upon his return. While his lack of wins is concerning, the Sabres weren't a playoff contender this season, and it's very encouraging that he sports very encouraging peripheral numbers. Though backup Chad Johnson had a very good season filling in, Lehner is expected to be the team's No. 1 goalie next season, though he will face increasing competition over the next few years with young goalies Linus Ullmark, Jason Kasdorf and Cal Petersen in the pipeline.

    Sabres' Robin Lehner: Makes just 21 appearances as starting goalie

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/16/16) Lehner (ankle) finishes the season with a 5-9-5 record with a 2.47 goals-against average and .924 save percentage.

    Despite posting good numbers, Lehner saw limited action and had a few bad games scattered throughout. His first season as a starter was cut short with ankle injuries on two separate occasions. Despite the setbacks, the Sabres still view Lehner as their No. 1 goalie and have him penciled in as such next season. The biggest challenge facing Lehner will be health, and if he manages to stay away from the infirmary could see 50-60 appearances next season. He's a moderate-upside goalie who isn't in real danger of losing his job.

    Sabres' Robin Lehner: Undergoes season-ending surgery

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/30/16) Lehner (ankle) will miss the rest of the 2015-16 season after undergoing surgery Wednesday.

    Though the Sabres are already eliminated from playoff contention and won't feel the effects of this loss, Lehner's fantasy owners will be hurting after the 24-year-old goaltender's strong performances this season. Lehner was acquired to be the team's bonafide number-one goaltender, and he has been just that. Though he was limited to just 21 games due to injury, Lehner posted a 2.47 GAA and a .924 save percentage while playing for one of the league's weakest teams.

    Sabres' Robin Lehner: To be evaluated Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/26/16) Lehner (ankle) has not returned to the ice and will be evaluated Saturday, reports The Buffalo News.

    Lehner aggravated his ankle earlier in March after suffering a high ankle sprain in the first game of the season. He's appeared in just 21 games in his first year as a starter, and although his appearances have been infrequent he's posted solid numbers with a 2.47 goals-against average and .924 save percentage. Chad Johnson continues to get the majority of the starts in his absence.

    Sabres' Robin Lehner: Still sidelined

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/24/16) Lehner (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Paul Hamilton of WGR 550 reports.

    At this stage, Lehner's chances of being available for Saturday's home game against the Jets remain cloudy, though a return to the ice Friday, in some capacity, could brighten the goalie's outlook on that front.

    Lehner surrendered four goals before being pulled in the second period of Monday's 6-3 loss to the Hurricanes.Lehner temporarily returned to the win column against the Oilers on Saturday, but it's been an otherwise rough stretch for the netminder as he's been on the losing side in 10 of his last 13 starts. With starting goalie Craig Anderson (hand) nearing a return, Lehner's run as the top goalie in Ottawa will soon come to an end.
