Robin Lehner will undergo shoulder surgery and he will miss the remainder of the 2021-22 season. Lehner tried to battle through the injury, which he sustained February 9, and the team was hopeful that rest and rehab would allow him to complete the season. He had been absent from practices for maintenance purposes last week amid reports that he was going to have season-ending surgery. Lehner was in the lineup as the backup netminder on Sunday, but now Jiri Petera will rejoin the team to serve as Logan Thompson's understudy.
