ImpactIt's an interesting extra audition for Lehner, who lost 2-1 in overtime to the Boston Bruins in his 2013 debut on Friday. He's had 14 NHL appearances over the last three seasons, though he's likely never been more intriguing fantasy-wise. It's too early to nab him, but keep an eye on his progress as Craig Anderson recovers and Ben Bishop watches.

NewsRobin Lehner was a split second too late in fending off the decisive goal in Ottawa's 2-1 overtime loss to the Bruins on Thursday.
ImpactPatrice Bergeron's deflection squeaked through Lehner, who then was tangled up with a Bruin so he pulled his bare hand out of his blocker to grab the puck as it trickled over the line. "They threw a lot of pucks at us ... and unfortunately at the end they got a stick on it and a lucky bounce I think," Lehner said. "I couldn't really recover, so I had to take my hand out and it still got in." "We played a really good road game. It's very hard to win in this building." Even with the loss, Lehner was brilliant, making 44 saves.

Senators recall G Robin Lehner from AHL | 02/22/2013 11:58 AM
NewsOttawa Senators recall G Robin Lehner from AHL Binghamton.
ImpactStarting goalie Craig Anderson sprained his ankle in Thursday's shootout win over the Rangers and will likely miss at least a game or two. Ben Bishop relieved Anderson and allowed two goals on 13 shots in just over 23 minutes of action. It's unclear whether Bishop or Lehner will get the majority of the starts, but we'd bet on Bishop if Anderson is only out for a short period of time. However, all bets are off if Anderson has to sit for an extended stretch.

Renaud Lavoie on Twitter
ImpactUntil this move, the Sens were carrying three goalies with Craig Anderson the starter and Ben Bishop backing him up.

Robin Lehner likely to stay in AHL - for now | 01/07/2013 3:01 PM
NewsRobin Lehner will probably stay in the minors when the Senators kick off the 2012-13 season.
ImpactCraig Anderson is slated to remain as the team's starting goaltender, while Ben Bishop is slotted to be back him up. Bishop has a guaranteed NHL contract, while Lehner can continue to be paid his AHL salary. Ottawa's goalie of the future has been great this season in the minors, while posting a 13-5-1 record with a 1.94 GAA and a .944 save percentage in 38 games with Binghamton. Lehner could get time in the NHL this year if injuries occur or if the team finds itself in a position to trade one of their netminders.
Robin Lehner busy, but up to the task | 01/04/2013 11:00 PM
NewsRobin Lehner was sharp in net with 43 saves in Binghamton's 3-1 victory versus Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Friday night.
