RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016-17

Subscribe now to see our 2016-17 outlook.

2015-16

Lehner got what he wanted -- a starterís gig -- with his move to western New York. But for as much as the team in front of him projects to improve in 2015-16, thereís no Erik Karlsson or Marc Methot in front of him any longer. This may be the epitome of -- at least for this year -- the old adage of "be careful what you wish for." Lehner is talented, but heís coming off a concussion that limited his playing time in 2014-15. And despite decent career numbers (2.88 GAA, .914 save percentage), his most recent (and busiest) two seasons have been less than impressive. His GAA in the last two seasons as a full-time backup hasnít gone below 3.02. And his save percentage last season was .905. Buffalo general manager Tim Murray knows Lehner from his days in the Ottawa system, so the goalie will be given lots of rope. But donít stake your teamís success on his back -- he may only get 50 starts and will be hard-pressed to win 20. He's a more attractive entity in dynasty or keeper formats.

2014-15

Lehner just inked a three-year extension with the Senators, and at age 23, is widely considered the Senators goaltender of the future. He suited up for 36 games since starter Craig Anderson struggled, but was unable to secure the starting job due to some disappointing performances of his own. He finished the year with a 12-15-6 record, a 3.06 GAA, and a .913 save percentage. Look for him to get a good number of starts again in 2014-15 as the Senators rebuild, and if he gets another chance to grab the starting job for himself, he could suddenly find himself as a regular NHL starter.

2013-14

Lehner inspired enough confidence in GM Bryan Murray last season that he was willing to trade away backup Ben Bishop to the Lightning in exchange for Cory Conacher. Lehner played 12 games last season while starter Craig Anderson was injured and after Bishop was traded, and he recorded a stellar .938 save percentage and a 2.20 GAA. He'll be the full-time backup in 2013-14, and should get a decent number of starts, especially if Anderson gets hurt again. He's still just 22 years old, and is widely considered the Sens goalie of the future.

2012-13

The 2011-12 season for Robin Lehner could be considered a wake-up call of sorts as the gifted goaltender was told in no uncertain terms that he had to shape up and mature as a professional hockey player. Sens management spoke loud and clear when they traded for Ben Bishop near the end of the season to help replace the then-injured Craig Anderson in goal. With Bishop's one-way contract, Lehner will have to prove that he's heads and tails above Bishop if he hopes to win the backup spot out of training camp. Lehner showed flashes of brilliance when he was brought up as he posted a 3-2 record with a .935 save percentage and a 2.01 goals-against average in five appearances. His AHL season was inconsistent at best, as he only posted a 13-22-1 record with a .907 SV% and a 3.26 GAA in 40 appearances. With all of that being said, Lehner came to Ottawa's development camp in late June this off-season in tremendous shape and a much more mature and professional attitude which was remarcked upon by several of Ottawa's managment staff, including assistant GM Tim Murray. With his athleticism and size, not to mention his ultra-competitive attitude, Lehner is still one of the best goaltending prospects in the league and at only 21 years of age, he's a fantastic keeper league prospect.

2011-12

After a year of ups and downs in 2010-11, Lehner cemented himself as Ottawa's goalie of the future by not only winning the Calder Cup Championship with Binghamton, but also taking away the Jack A. Butterfield trophy as the AHL playoff MVP. Only 19 years old at the time, Lehner posted a 14-4 record with a 2.10 GAA and an outsanding .939 SV%. He'll spend the 2011-12 season as Binghamton's No. 1 goaltender, but could see time with Ottawa if Craig Anderson goes down with an injury. Ottawa's management has already said that if Anderson does miss time, Lehner will be called up and be the No. 1 in Ottawa until Anderson returns. The youngster still needs to work on his consistency and rebound control, but has shown remarkable progress in both of those areas. Expect Lehner to crack the big club for good in 2012-13, likely as the understudy to Anderson.

2010-11

The 19-year-old Lehner will start the season playing for Ottawaís AHL affiliate in Binghamton where heíll likely share the starterís duties with veteran Mike Brodeur. The 2009, 2nd round pick came over to North America last year and helped lead a subpar Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds team into the OHL playoffs. He has excellent mobility for a big manóheís 6í4Ēóbut the thing that Ottawa really loves about him is his mental game and his confidence. Lehner is the type of goalie who can recover quickly from a bad goal or a bad game before putting on a big winning streak. While Lehner himself has informed GM Bryan Murray heíll compete for a starting role on the big club (again, his confidence is off the charts), donít expect him to make a real contribution until 2011-12 at the earliest.

2009-10

Lehner had an excellent rookie camp this year, winning both of his games while allowing only two goals. He'll suit up for the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the OHL this year and should see plenty of rubber as the Soo Greyhounds are one of the weaker teams. Lehner has turned some heads in the pre-season camps and should be on your radar in keeper leagues. He's two or three years away from battling for a spot with the big club, but he's made an excellent first impression on Ottawa's management.
