Lehner to get first NHL start Thursday on Long Island

Robin Lehner tends the net for Sweden in the 2011 IIHF World Junior Championships in Buffalo, NY.

According to reports, the most reputable being TEAM 1200's Steve Lloyd, Ottawa Senators goaltending prospect Robin Lehner will make his first NHL start Thursday night against  the New York Islanders.


Robin Lehner stats GP MIN W L GA GAA SA SV SV% SO

2010-11 AHL 12 701 5 6 31 2.65 354 323 0.912 2
2011 World Juniors 3 195 1 1 9 2.77 96 87 0.906 1


Lehner, you might remember, has made two appearances in relief this season, but his first start marks a tacit acknowledgement from Sens brass that the future of this season will be less about 'this season' and more about the future. Which at least gives us something interesting to watch.
