The Buffalo Sabres have confirmed that they won't present Robin Lehner with a qualifying offer.
Such an offer had to be $4 million and the Sabres likely felt that would be too high. As a result, Lehner can now test the UFA market on July 1. He had a 3.01 GAA and .908 save percentage in 53 games last season, but he's also had some strong campaigns as well. It wouldn't be surprising if another team has interest in him at least as a backup. Jun 22 - 12:49 PM

The Buffalo Sabres are reportedly not expected to present Robin Lehner with a qualifying offer.

If that happens then Lehner will become an unrestricted free agent. TSN's Bob McKenzie added that Buffalo is likely to look elsewhere for a goalie to partner with Linus Ullmark. Lehner's qualifying offer would have been $4 million. He struggled last season with a 3.01 GAA and .908 save percentage in 53 games.

Robin Lehner (lower body) will not require surgery.

"He'll be healthy for next year, which is a great thing," Sabres GM Jason Botterill said Wednesday. Lehner will become a restricted free agent this off-season and he will need a $4 million qualifying offer from Buffalo or else he can become an unrestricted free agent. It's unclear at this time if the team plans to bring him back.

Lehner allowed three goals on 20 shots through two periods, but he didn't come out to start the third frame. After the game, Sabres head coach Phil Housley didn't have an update on his starting netminder's status. Lehner picked up a no-decision on Thursday night. Chad Johnson, who gave up three goals on 12 shots in the third period, was saddled with the loss.

Robin Lehner (undisclosed) said he's feeling better.

It doesn't sound like Lehner is ready to return yet though. As previously noted, he should be regarded as day-to-day. He last played on March 15.
Mar 21 - 11:41 AM

Robin Lehner (maintenance) is listed as day-to-day.

Lehner didn't skate Monday after he was scratched Saturday afternoon against Chicago and an undisclosed issue appears to be the reason behind that. Buffalo was already carrying three goaltenders with Linus Ullmark on the roster.
Mar 19 - 4:09 PM

Robin Lehner will be a healthy scratch for this afternoon's game against the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Sabres have decided to have Linus Ullmark backup Chad Johnson. It's an interesting decision but they probably just want Lehner to get a breather in without having to worry about going into the game. Josh Gorges, Casey Nelson and Jacob Josefson will also be a healthy scratch.
Mar 17 - 12:46 PM

Robin Lehner kicked out 34 of 38 shots in a 5-2 loss to Toronto Thursday night.

Lehner has now dropped four of his last five starts. That's not too surprising given that he's allowed 16 goals over that span.

Robin Lehner will be in the crease Thursday against Toronto.

Chad Johnson was in goal for Buffalo's 5-3 win over the Maple Leafs on Mar. 5, but Lehner has played well in his last two outings and will get a third straight start. He is coming off a 2-1 shootout loss to Vegas on Saturday night, which dropped his record to 14-24-9 on the season with a 2.91 goals-against average and .911 save percentage.
