Lehner Dealt To Sabres

News: Robin Lehner was traded from the Senators to the Sabres on Friday along with forward David Legwand in exchange for the No. 21 pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.
Analysis: Robin Lehner started 24 games for the Senators last season, going 9-12-3 with a 3.02 GAA before a concussion ended his season early. Though Lehner remains an intriguing prospect, the presence of Craig Anderson in net and the second-half emergence of Andrew Hammond made him expendable in Ottawa. In Buffalo, Lehner is now the clear frontrunner for top netminding duties, though he'll still have to fend off Chad Johnson for the role. Lehner doesn't exactly fit the bill of an experienced No. 1 goalie the Sabres had wanted, but he nonetheless gives the team a netminder with some intriguing upside. He'll get a slight fantasy boost due to his increased role in Buffalo, but since the Sabres aren't expected to be playoff contenders next year, wins may often prove elusive.

Sens' Lehner Recovered From Concussion

News: Robin Lehner indicated last week that he was no longer feeling the effects of a concussion and should enjoy a relatively normal offseason, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: The offseason should be normal in terms of Robin Lehner's training and preparation for the upcoming season, but his future with the Senators remains on shaky ground. After the re-signing of Andrew Hammond and the addition of college goalie prospect Matt O'Connor, the Senators have a surplus of netminders on the roster, which will almost certainly lead the club to trade one of Lehner or Craig Anderson this summer, according to Garrioch. Seven teams have reportedly already inquired about Anderson and Lehner, though the more youthful (and less expensive) Lehner is believed to be the more attractive goalie in the eyes of potential suitors. Still only 23 years old, Lehner could make for a reasonable long-term solution in the net for a number of teams.

Sens' Lehner Not Over Concussion Yet

News: Senators GM Bryan Murray said Robin Lehner (concussion) is still experiencing headaches, TSN's Brent Wallace reports.
Analysis: Robin Lehner had planned to resume working out on the ice in the near future, but with the headaches still surfacing, doctors told the goalie to shut down his activity for another week. The 23-year-old last played Feb. 16 and will head into the offseason facing a murky future, the health concerns notwithstanding. Andrew Hammond's emergence was the story of the second half and Craig Anderson was inked to a pricey extension in August, which could lead the Senators to explore trading Lehner to another club this summer.

Sens' Lehner Still Has Concussion Symptoms

News: Robin Lehner continues to suffer from concussion symptoms, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: Since Robin Lehner has yet to resume skating since suffering the head injury in a collision with teammate Clarke MacArthur on Feb. 16, the Senators continue to view him as out indefinitely. Despite the lengthy absences of their top two goalies in Lehner and Craig Anderson (hand), the Senators have managed to stay afloat in the race for the final wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference, due largely to the surprisingly sensational play of No. 3 netminder Andrew Hammond. His emergence may prompt the Sens to carry three goalies if and when Lehner returns from IR.

Sens' Lehner Diagnosed With Concussion

News: Coach Dave Cameron announced Friday that Robin Lehner's upper-body injury has been diagnosed as a concussion, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: Cameron confirmed the concussions for both Robin Lehner and forward Clarke MacArthur, who collided with each other during Monday's loss to the Hurricanes. Lehner will remain under the league's concussion protocol until his symptoms begin to subside, but the volatile recovery timetable for the head injury makes it difficult to speculate when he might be cleared to return. Like Lehner, Craig Anderson (hand) also remains listed on injured reserve, leaving Andrew Hammond as the team's primary netminder for the foreseeable future.

Senators Place Lehner On IR

News: Robin Lehner (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Thursday.
Analysis: The transaction will prevent Robin Lehner from returning action for at least Saturday's game against the Panthers, as he won't be eligible for activation until Feb. 24. The Senators haven't provided any indication of a possible return timetable for Lehner, who suffered the injury during a collision with teammate Clarke MacArthur in Monday's loss to the Hurricanes.

Sens' Lehner Out Wednesday

News: Robin Lehner (undisclosed) wasn't present for Wednesday's morning session and won't be available for the game later in the evening against the Canadiens, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: As anticipated, the Senators will go with Andrew Hammond as their starting goalie for the match, with ECHL call-up Chris Driedger backing him up. It's uncertain at this time if Robin Lehner's injury will keep him out for the Sens' contest over the weekend against the Panthers.

Sens' Lehner Likely Out Wednesday

News: Robin Lehner (unspecified injury) likely won't be available for Wednesday's game against the Canadiens, NHL.com reports.
Analysis: With Robin Lehner's injury issue slated to be evaluated Tuesday, it looks like Andrew Hammond is in line to get his first NHL start against the Canadiens on Wednesday.

Sens' Lehner Injured In Loss

News: Robin Lehner, who yielded four goals on 31 shots in Monday's loss to the Hurricanes, was forced to leave the contest after the second period due to a collision with teammate Clarke MacArthur, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: Robin Lehner seemed to escape the worst of the collision, as he was able to walk off the ice under his own power. Given his poor play over the first 40 minutes, it's possible he would have been pulled for the final period regardless of his health, but he'll be listed as day-to-day for now. The Senators are already patiently awaiting the return of Craig Anderson (hand) from injured reserve, so if Lehner's ailment forces him out of Wednesday's game against the Canadiens, Andrew Hammond would likely make his first start of the season. The Senators would also have to recall Chris Driedger from ECHL Evansville to serve as Hammond's backup in that scenario.

Sens' Lehner Yanked In Loss

News: Robin Lehner surrendered four goals before being pulled in the second period of Monday's 6-3 loss to the Hurricanes.
Analysis: Robin 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.

Sens Stick With Lehner

News: Robin Lehner will start Monday's game against the Hurricanes.
Analysis: The start will be the ninth consecutive turn for Robin Lehner, who has won two out of his last three outings, including Saturday's 7-2 decision over the Oilers.

Sens' Lehner Cruises To Victory

News: Robin Lehner cruised to victory Saturday, turning aside 25 of 27 shots in a 7-2 blowout of the Oilers.
Analysis: That's just Robin Lehner's third win in his last eight starts, with the other two -- unsurprisingly -- coming against similarly inferior opponents in the Sabres and Coyotes. His run of starting opportunities is likely to soon dry up, however, with Craig Anderson (hand) seemingly near a return after being out since Jan. 21, so owners of either netminder will want to respond accordingly.

Lehner, Sens Take Shootout Loss To Pittsburgh

News: Robin Lehner allowed four goals on 29 shots and took a shootout loss Thursday against the Penguins.
Analysis: He'd delivered a strong outing against Buffalo in his last turn, but the Penguins are not the Sabres. Robin Lehner's now taken losses in nine of his last 11 starts.

Senators' Lehner To Start Saturday

News: Robin Lehner will start Saturday's game against the Oilers, nhl.com's Chris Stevenson reports.
Analysis: Robin Lehner has a nice opportunity to improve his ugly 8-11-3 record, as the Oilers recently went a full three months without winning any road games in regulation. Of course, Edmonton has fared much better over the past few weeks, netting 12 points from the last 11 games. The Senators, meanwhile, have just 15 points since the calendar changed to 2015. Saturday will mark Lehner's eighth consecutive start, but Craig Anderson (hand) seems to be nearing a return.

Sens Stick With Lehner On Thursday

News: Robin Lehner will start Thursday's game against the Penguins.
Analysis: Though Craig Anderson could be back in the Sens' net before long, Robin Lehner will have a chance Thursday (at home) to follow up on Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Sabres. He'll face a Pittsburgh squad playing the second leg of back-to-back games; the Penguins take on the Red Wings on Wednesday.

Sens' Lehner Saves 35, Ends Losing Skid

News: Robin Lehner ended his three-game losing streak Tuesday, stopping 35 of 36 in a 2-1 victory over Buffalo.
Analysis: His teammates didn't offer as much offensive support as you'd like to see against the lowly Sabres, but it was enough. Despite having a hard time finding his way into the win column overall, Robin Lehner has turned in strong work recently, having averaged just two goals allowed per game over his last five starts. Craig Anderson could be back in a game or two, though, at which point Lehner will return to his backup role.

Sens' Lehner To Start Tuesday

News: Robin Lehner will start in goal Tuesday against the Sabres, Steve Lloyd of TSN reports.
Analysis: Robin Lehner will receive another start with Craig Anderson (hand) still not ready to go. The netminder is currently on a three=game losing streak, but hasn't been all that bad, allowing no more than three goals in any of the games. He will look to snap he skid Monday against a Sabres squad averaging a league-worst 1.78 goals per game.

Sens' Lehner: 29 Saves In Frustrating Loss

News: Robin Lehner made 29 saves in Ottawa's 4-1 loss to Columbia. He allowed three goals.
Analysis: He was visibly angry at the end of the game, smashing his composite goalie stick in frustration. The game was a lot closer than the score indicated -- it was knotted at zeros until the 4:13 mark of the third. He has just a single win in his last nine starts.

Lehner To Backstop Sens On Saturday

News: Robin Lehner will be in the crease for Saturday's game against the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: Craig Anderson's (hand) return is on the horizon after he was able to face shots the last couple of days, but he hasn't sufficiently healed enough to play Saturday. As a result, Robin Lehner will garner a fifth straight start. He's held the opposition to two goals in each of the past three games, but the Senators' offensive disappearing act has allowed him to pick up only one win.

Sens' Lehner Stops 27 In Loss

News: Robin Lehner delivered a strong outing Thursday against Washington, saving 27 of 29, but ended up with his seventh loss in eight starts.
Analysis: Tough luck again for Robin Lehner, who's given up just two goals in three straight games, and yet has won only one of those three. The Swedish goalie got a 1-0 lead in the second period, proceeded to give up two goals in the next 2:02, and otherwise was perfect. He's started four straight in place of Craig Anderson (hand), but it sounds like Anderson is getting closer to returning. Check back to see whether Lehner starts again Saturday against Columbus.

Sens' Lehner To Start Thursday

News: Robin Lehner will be in the cage for Thursday's game against the Capitals, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: The Senators are still considering regular netminder Craig Anderson day-to-day with a hand injury, so Robin Lehner will earn his fourth straight start. He's been a bit inconsistent over his prior three turns, winning one game while posting sub-.900 save percentages in his two losses. Those in daily leagues are better off scanning other goalie options for Thursday's slate.

Lehner, Sens Edged By Devils

News: Robin Lehner saved 17 of 19 in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to New Jersey.
Analysis: Not the shiniest stat line for Robin Lehner, but you can't really fault the guy after he gave up just two goals. He's looked a lot better over the last couple games after a stretch in which he'd surrendered four or more goals five times in six starts.

Sens Turn To Lehner On Tuesday

News: Robin Lehner will receive the start in net Tuesday against the Devils.
Analysis: Robin Lehner posted a strong outing Saturday against the Coyotes, stopping 35 of the 37 shots he faced en route to his seventh victory of the season. Until Craig Anderson returns from his hand injury, expect Lehner to continue to receive the lion's share of starts in net.

Offense Lifts Sens' Lehner To Victory

News: Robin Lehner stopped 35 of 37 shots to claim a victory over the Coyotes on Saturday.
Analysis: Though the final score indicated a blowout, Robin Lehner found himself behind early, as a defensive misplay by teammate Marc Methot allowed the Coyotes' Zbynek Michalek to find the net 40 seconds into the contest. Lehner would build a brick wall around the crease thereafter, with his offense providing plenty of insurance to lead the goalie to his first win since Dec. 13. Lehner has started the Sens' last two games with Craig Anderson (hand) on injured reserve, but Anderson could be ready to go for the team's next game Tuesday in New Jersey after he was able to resume practicing Saturday morning.

Sens' Lehner To Start Saturday Against Coyotes

News: Robin Lehner will start Saturday's game against the Coyotes, Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: With Craig Anderson (hand) placed on injured reserve Thursday, Robin Lehner will make a second consecutive start. Anderson's stint on IR can be backdated to Jan. 21, which means he could return for Tuesday's game in New Jersey. The hand injury is not thought to be overly serious.
