Golden Knights’ Lehner denies reports of new deal


Vegas Golden Knights Goalie Robin Lehner says he hasn’t accepted a new contract with his team.”That’s not true,” Lehner told reporters during Team Zoom’s Friday call about various reports that he had a five-year pact with Vegas. “Again, I’ve been on a lot of teams lately and you’ve got discussions and a bit of where you’re at and what you want to do. Nothing has been finalized. We are here.

“It’s kinda boring – we’re here at the conference finals and people say things that they don’t know and just add to that, this stuff that’s going on here, you know. If it had been finalized, it would be I was finalized, but it is not. I’m here to win a Cup, not to discuss this. ”

Lehner, who will become an unrestricted free agent on Oct. 9, played 14 playoff games for the Golden Knights, compared to just four for the incumbent. Marc-André Fleury. A controversy between goalkeepers ensued when Allan Walsh, Fleury’s agent, tweeted a photo of his client with a sword on his back. The sword bore the word “DeBoer,” referring to Golden Knights head coach Peter DeBoer.

Lehner was acquired by the team during the trade deadline. Vegas trails the Dallas Stars 2-1 in the Western Conference Finals.
