The Vegas Golden Knights have re-signed goaltender Robin Lehner to a $25 million, five-year contract that carries a $5 million annual salary cap hit. Lehner replaced face of the franchise Marc-Andre Fleury as the Golden Knights’ starter during the expanded NHL playoffs. Coach Peter DeBoer repeatedly said Vegas would use both goaltenders. But he chose Lehner to start 16 of the Golden Knights’ 20 postseason games. Lehner went 9-7 with a 1.99 goals-against average and .917 save percentage as Vegas reached the Western Conference final before losing to the Dallas Stars.
