Golden Knights Lehner Files for Bankruptcy Amidst $50M Debt

In some unfortunate news, reports have surfaced that Vegas Golden Knights goaltender Robin Lehner and his wife have filed for bankruptcy. The filing was due to almost $50 million in debt to dozens of creditors.

Lehner filed in Vegas in late December which stems from a lawsuit from a Wisconsin based company who came after the Golden Knights goaltender for roughly $4 million. There's also several other corporations going hard after Lehner for overdue payments on a business loan.

Lehner and his wife estimated their currently worth $10 million, as their debts also include missed payments for a collection of rare snakes, which were purchased for $1.2 million back in 2017. The Vegas netminder owns a snake/reptile farm in Plato, Missouri.

Vegas signed Lehner back in 2020 to a five-year, $25 million contract. He's currently on the shelve recovering from hip surgery and isn't expected back this season.
