April 2013 – With the Senators moving Ben Bishop, Lehner now has an NHL job for good. His AHL/NHL combined SV% this season is over .936. With Craig Anderson’s contract lasting two more years the only question is: when he will take over the crease? Jason Banks
January 2013 - Robin Lehner has been named the CCM/AHL Player of the Week (ending January 27th) after posting a 2-0-0 record with a 0.92 GAA and .975 save percentage. Lehner is ready for NHL primetime and remains the top goaltending prospect available in fantasy hockey. Brendan Ross
January 2013 – Ottawa at first decided they wanted Lehner on the roster after training camp, but since have decided to send him down as they showcase Ben Bishop as the latter would require waivers. Lehner remains one of the top prospects on goalie lists, and is currently representing Binghamton at the AHL All-Star game. He is currently sporting a .948 SV% on the season with a 1.80 GAA. He has been extremely sharp as of late going 8-1 in his last 9 games with a 1.64 GAA and .955 SV%. He is pushing hard and is a must own in keeper leagues. Jason Banks
October 2012 – Ottawa has a very bright future in the crease with this large Swedish tender. Lehner has been strong and reliable at every level he has played, a trend that shows no signs of slowing down. Lehner is goalie that leaves everything he has on the ice, technically sound, and very quick. Sen’s management has done the right thing by letting him develop fully, yet also giving him appropriate opportunities at growth. Lehner was expected to play this full campaign in Binghamton pre-lockout to play legitimate starter minutes. Joining him in the tandem is his top competition within the organization, Ben Bishop. Lehner is still expected to carry the load as Bishop has proven all he need to at the AHL level, this still gives Ottawa a chance to allow their 2 top young goalies play heads up against each other. To start this season, Lehner has been lights out with a sparkling .938 save percentage in six appearances.
Fantasy Outlook: A+
As far as ability and talent, Lehner is on of top fantasy prospects to own, his high end numbers will depend on the team in front of him.
