In Vegas, they believed in the Swede. It turns out that the team’s star, Robin Lehner, was addicted to alcohol, but now he has received a contract for $ 25 million.
At the end of June 2019, a significant event took place in Las Vegas. At that time, the New York Islanders’ goalkeeper Robin Lehner won the Bill Masterton Trophy, a prize awarded to a player who showed high sportsmanship and loyalty to hockey. For Lehner, this award was special. The fact is that the Swedish goalkeeper defeated alcohol and drug addiction, and recovered from a bipolar personality disorder.
Rehabilitation was difficult for Lehner, but he was able to give up alcohol and drugs. The athlete found consolation in Christianity. It’s great that the goalkeeper openly spoke about his problems, thus becoming a real ambassador for people with similar problems.
Returning to Life
Robin could have finished hockey for a long time, but he not only started a new life but also proved himself to be an excellent player. Besides, the Swede received recognition at home, becoming the player of the year there. It turns out that Lehner, who used to be addicted to alcohol, now has received a contract for $ 25 million.
After the Islanders, Lehner was a part of the Chicago team. However, the Blackhawks traded the goalkeeper to Vegas in the end. In Vegas, the Swedish goalkeeper immediately fit into the team and was liked by the fans. This season Lehner took part in 36 games of the NHL regular championship, in which he won 19 victories. As a result, having impressed the management and coaching staff, Lehner received the long-awaited long-term contract for himself. The 29-year-old goalkeeper signed a five-year, $ 25 million deal.
