The Chicago Blackhawks have traded Robin Lehner to the Vegas Golden Knights. This leaves Corey Crawford as the main guy for the rest of the season.
The Chicago Blackhawks have had an up and down year. It has been more down than up since the All-Star break so they went into full sell mode this Trade Deadline. First, they sent Erik Gustafsson to the Calgary Flames. Now, they have traded Robin Lehner to the Vegas Golden Knights. In the trade, they acquired goaltender Malcolm Subban, a prospect and a pick.
Lehner is now going to go to a stacked Vegas Golden Knights team. They play a solid defensive game from their forwards to their defense so he should absolutely thrive in that system. For the rest of the regular season, he is going to share the net with Marc-Andre Fleury. Fleury probably gets the nod for the playoffs but they probably won’t hesitate to go to Lehner if Fleury struggles at any point. This is a loaded team that is ready to challenge for the Stanley Cup.
