While the rest of his Vegas Golden Knights teammates are in the Stanley Cup Final, injured goaltender Robin Lehner is facing yet another difficult legal circumstance. 

As you may remember, Lehner sat for the entire 2022-23 season after he underwent hip surgery. His varying health status combined with his inconsistent play in net since coming to Sin City have many questioning why the team acquired him at the 2020 NHL Trade Deadline despite having the beloved veteran Marc-Andre Fleury in net.

Not only did Lehner declare bankruptcy, but it was also soon revealed that he was facing fraud claims from Aliya Growth Fund, a creditor in his bankruptcy case. And now, there's even more legal issues. 

Lehner is now being accused of fraud by businessman Michael Borden, who recently filed a complaint in U.S. Bankruptcy court over a $4 million debt. He says that he loaned Lehner $3.5 million to invest in a company known as SolarCode, but wasn't given proper information indicating that the company wasn't profitable. 

According to the complaint, Lehner "made a series of misrepresentations regarding the state of the technologies, that SolarCode technologies were operational complete and functional, that SolarCode technologies were complete and certified by Black & Veatch, that the royalties being paid and payable by SolarCode were being processed."

Borden also alleged that Lehner took out another $500,000 loan for personal use until his salary started for the new hockey season, and that the loan would be paid back within two months. However, he says that he wasn't informed of Lehner's millions in outstanding debt, and never would have given him the loan had he known.
