Golden Knights Goaltender To Miss Entire 2022-23 Season

It's been quite the offseason for Vegas Golden Knights goaltender Robin Lehner. First he underwent shoulder surgery in May, now hip surgery will wipe out his entire season.

The 31-year-old goalie went 23–17–2 last season in 44 games, with a .907 save percentage. The 12-year vet is a two-time winner of the Jennings Trophy, and a Top 6 finisher for the Vezina four times. He holds a career mark of 152–141–49, with a .917 save percentage and 17 shutouts. He's going into the 3rd year of a 5-year, $5M AAV contract.

To make matters worse for Vegas, Lehner's backup,  Laurent Brossoit, is also recovering from an offseason medical procedure to his hip. His status for training camp is currently unknown.

At this point, then, the Golden Knights are potentially looking at a goaltending tandem of Logan Thompson and Michael Hutchinson to start the year. Expect some potential moves on this front.
