TVOS at The Hockey Writers: AHL or NHL - What's Best For Sens Prospect Robin Lehner?
The plan heading into the season for Ottawa Senators prospect Robin Lehner was to have the young goaltender see as much action in the American Hockey League as possible this year, giving the first-year professional an opportunity to learn the game at the next level. Unfortunately, with Pascal Leclaire's lingering injuries, Lehner has spent the season travelling between Binghamton and Ottawa, playing with the Binghamton Senators, and sitting on the bench in Ottawa.
As the Senators fall further out of the playoff picture, is it time to see what Lehner can do at the NHL level? Is he a better option than Brian Elliott at this point?
