Your Say: Robin Lehner
We've given out our grades. Now it's your turn!
We've finished our player grades for the 2014-15 season, but that was just 9 people talking about what they think--and it was a lot of information to talk about. Now it's time for our readers to cast their votes. And with that in mind, we present our Your Say series!
A hot start was the only bright spot in an otherwise difficult year for Lehner. He played quite well in October and November, covering for Ottawa's porous defense, but struggled mightily during December and January. When Craig Anderson was injured in the final game before the All-Star break, Lehner was handed the starter's job. In his month in relief he alternated strong performances (.946, .931, .972, .926 SV %) with extremely poor outings (sub .900 SV %). His season ended on February 15, when Clarke MacArthur crashed into Lehner trying to make a defensive play in a blowout loss against Carolina. Both players suffered concussions on the play but while MacArthur was able to return before the end of the season, Lehner did not play again. With trade rumours swirling before Anderson's injury and the emergence of Andrew Hammond during the streak, Lehner's future with the team remains cloudy.
