LAS VEGAS. Vegas Golden Knights goaltender Robin Lehner and his wife have filed for bankruptcy in Nevada, citing debts of up to $50 million to dozens of creditors.
The Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing shows the couple’s financial problems, including debts owed to no fewer than 50 people and companies, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
They filed for bankruptcy on Dec. 30, months after a Wisconsin company sued Lehner for $4 million, alleging the NHL player and his father defaulted on a business loan last year.
Both Lehner and his father, Michael, are listed as principal members of the Nevada business license for Solarcode, a limited liability corporation that does business in multiple states, including Nevada and Arizona.
Solarcode agreed to a four-year repayment plan with Eclipse Service in January 2022, but missed its first five payments, prompting the Wisconsin company to sue in U.S. District Court in Milwaukee in late June 2022.
Lehner’s attorney did not immediately respond to The Associated Press’ request for comment Monday.
Lehner’s debts also include missed payments on a collection of rare snakes acquired in bankruptcy in 2017 for $1.2 million. Lehner keeps the snakes at his reptile farm in Plato, Missouri.
He and his wife, Donya, are estimated to be worth up to $10 million.
Lehner, 31, signed a five-year, $25 million contract with the Knights in 2020, but the Swede spent the 2022-23 season recovering from hip surgery.
