Breaking News: Robin Lehner to have surgery and Vegas Golden Knights take Marc-André Fleury off the trade market
Marc-André Fleury is now off the trade market.
At least that is the word from Vegas Golden Knight’s GM Kelly McCrimmon who has stated he intends to keep both goaltenders on the roster and that the team will be cap compliment before next season gets underway in game-play.
Expecting an update on Robin Lehner’s health tonight from @GoldenKnights. Word is Lehner has an injury that may cause him to miss some time.

Of course with the sudden alertness to Robin Lehner’s injury that requires surgery it seems like a no-brainer move aside the fact of how much cap-space the two goaltenders will be taking up and why the team wanted to move Fleury after signing Lehner to a 5 year deal worth a total of $25 million.
Robin Lehner will have shoulder surgery this week, McCrimmon says, calling it “clean-up surgery”

Although McCrimmon has also stated Lehner will be ready for the start of camp training it will need to be seen if the true reason Fleury is off the market currently because of his high cap hit and teams unwillingly to take on such a contract.
It’s never a bad thing to have two great starting goaltenders on the roster especially with more teams looking to try splitting time among their goalies in what may be a very schedule heavy season of back-to-back games for the 2020-21 NHL Season.
