Vegas goalie Lehner declares bankruptcy, citing a $50 million debt.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Robin Lehner, goaltender for the Vegas Golden Knights, and his wife have filed for bankruptcy in Nevada, citing up to $50 million in debts to dozens of creditors.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the couple’s Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing reveals a glimpse into their financial problems, including money owed to no less than 50 people and companies.

They declared bankruptcy on December 30, months after a Wisconsin company sued Lehner for $4 million, alleging the NHL player and his father failed to make any payments on a business loan last year.

In a Nevada business licence filing for Solarcode, a limited liability corporation doing business in multiple states, including Nevada and Arizona, both Lehner and his father, Michael, are listed as principal members.

Solarcode agreed to a four-year repayment plan with Eclipse Service in January 2022, but failed to make the first five payments, prompting the Wisconsin company to sue in U.S. District Court in Milwaukee in late June 2022.

An attorney for Lehner did not immediately respond to an Associated Press request for comment on Monday.

According to the bankruptcy filing, Lehner’s debts also included missed payments for a collection of rare snakes he purchased for $1.2 million in 2017. The snakes are kept at Lehner’s reptile farm in Plato, Missouri.

His and Donya’s assets are estimated to be worth up to $10 million.

Lehner, 31, signed a five-year, $25 million contract with the Knights in 2020, but he missed the entire 2022-23 season due to hip surgery.
