The Buffalo Sabres have acquired Robin Lehner and David Legwand from the Ottawa Senators in exchange for the 21st overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.
At one time Lehner was seen as the Senators' goaltender of the future, but he hasn't been able to firmly establish himself as the team's starter. After showing promise in his initial NHL stints, he has struggled with a GAA above 3.00 in each of his last two seasons. The 2014-15 campaign was arguably his worse to date as he posted a 3.02 GAA and .905 save percentage in 25 contests. At the same time, he's just 23 years old so it's far too early to assume he won't live up to his potential. He's got a fresh opportunity in Buffalo and it wouldn't be surprising to see him make the most of it. Jun 26 - 10:17 AM

It appears that Ottawa prefers to ship out young netminder Robin Lehner as opposed veteran goalie Craig Anderson.

With Calgary, Dallas, San Jose, and St. Louis with varying degrees of interest in 23 year old netminder Robin Lehner, it's Buffalo and Edmonton who appear hottest on the trail. The Senators however seem intent on moving one of their depreciating contracts, David Legwand (one year, $3M) or Colin Greening (two years, $2.65M per) along with him. There isn't a consensus yet on what the Senators want in return, but with Andrew Hammond, Matt O'Connor and Chris Driedger also in the fold, they can afford to be creative and selective.

Ottawa is expected to ramp up their efforts to trade a goaltender this week.

With the NHL Draft approaching, it's a good time for the Senators to try to deal Robin Lehner or Craig Anderson. TSN's Bob McKenzie reports that the club is talking with teams about both netminders, but Lehner is believed to be the more likely of the two to be dealt.

The Senators are said to be looking to acquire a top-six forward for one of their surplus goalies.

The rumor on the street is that the Sens have at least one firm offer for Robin Lehner that involves a forward who could play on one of Ottawa's top two lines. The Senators are also said to be interested in acquiring another first-round pick in this June's entry draft. Stay tuned as GM Bryan Murray has stated he wants to complete a deal before the draft.

According to ESPN hockey analyst Pierre Lebrun, the Ottawa Senators have received several firm trade offers for Robin Lehner.

Lehner missed the second half of the season because of a concussion. As scary as concussions are today, Lehner is still young and he has a high enough ceiling that team’s will certainly try to lure him out of Ottawa. With Craig Anderson and Andrew Hammond between the pipes in Ottawa, they could afford to let go of Lehner for the right price. The Edmonton Oilers and San Jose Sharks are believed to be two of the teams chasing after Lehner.

Robin Lehner, who suffered a concussion back on Feb. 16, has received clearance.

Senators GM Bryan Murray told the Ottawa Sun that he has had seven teams call with interest in his goaltenders and most of it has been for Lehner. The 23-year-old netminder was apparently over his concussion problem when he returned to Sweden for the off-season. Ottawa looks like they will look to move Lehner over the summer.
Jun 4 - 11:25 AM

Robin Lehner remains the most likely Ottawa goalie to be traded this off-season.

With the signing of Andrew Hammond, the Senators now have three NHL goalies on their roster, which is not ideal. There is a trade market for netminders with Edmonton and Buffalo perhaps having the greatest need. So don't be surprised if the Senators opt to keep 31-year-old Craig Anderson as their starter and Hammond as his backup next season. Anderson, although the best goalie of the lot, is a veteran and may not get the return the Sens will need. That makes Lehner the more marketable (despite a recent concussion) of the Ottawa backstops and the most likely to be moved. Stay tuned.

By adding Matt O'Connor to their mix, the Ottawa Senators have a lot of goalies to deal with (and possibly trade).

Senators GM Bryan Murray looked at it from an optimistic standpoint: this gives the team a lot of "options" heading into the offseason.
May 9 - 3:01 PM

Robin Lehner is still experiencing symptoms after suffering a concussion on Feb. 16.

He was hurt when teammate Clarke MacArthur collided with him and hasn't made much progress. Lehner can't ride a stationary bike with experiencing headaches, so he's been told to shut it down for now.
Apr 29 - 11:25 AM

There hasn't been much news on the progress of Robin Lehner since he suffered a concussion on Feb. 16 against Carolina.

However, he isn't close to returning and is still dealing with concussion symptoms. Ottawa has received excellent goaltending from third-stringer Andrew Hammond to stay in the playoff race.
Mar 18 - 11:06 AM

Robin Lehner has been diagnosed with a concussion.

He might be able to accompany the team to California for their road trip next week.
Feb 20 - 3:24 PM

Robin Lehner was placed on injured reserve on Thursday, meaning he'll miss at least one more game, Saturday's tilt with Florida.

Andrew Hammond is expected to make his second career start. Lehner hasn't quite had the season that was expected of him. He's gone 9-12-3 with 74 goals against in 25 games this season, a far cry from someone expected to push for the starter's gig back in October.
Feb 19 - 11:08 PM

Robin Lehner (upper body) is unlikely to be available on Wednesday.

Lehner was accidentally ran into by teammate Clarke MacArthur during Monday's game. The Senators are already missing Craig Anderson (hand), so they might find themselves in a position where Andrew Hammond is their de facto number one goaltender.
Feb 17 - 1:50 PM

The status of Robin Lehner remains uncertain, but Ottawa may recall a goaltender from the minors in the meantime.

"I haven't got a report yet, but we're going to have to call up somebody for sure," said coach Dave Cameron. "You have to dress two goalies." Andrew Hammond, who filled in against Carolina after Lehner got hurt Monday night, is in charge of Ottawa's crease for now. Lehner suffered what could be a head injury versus the Hurricanes.
Feb 17 - 10:16 AM

Goaltender Robin Lehner and forward Clarke MacArthur of the Senators were injured in a goalmouth collision during a 6-3 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes in Ottawa Monday night.

Lehner and MacArthur did not return to the game. MacArthur skated into Lehner while attempting to break up a 3-on-1 by Carolina. Jay McClement wound with a goal, giving the Canes a 4-3 Carolina lead with 52 seconds left in the second period. It was Carolina's game-winning goal. MacArthur’s head collided with Lehner’s chest. Both players were motionless on the ice for several seconds. Both eventually got up and left the ice, though they did not return to the game. There was no immediate update given by the Sens on the players' conditions. Lehner was replaced by Andrew Hammond. Lehner allowed four goals on 31 shots; Hammond, two goals on five shots. Lehner is now 9-12-3 on the season, with a goals-against average of 3.02 and a save percentage of .905. Hammond's GAA after one appearance is 5.71.
