Pete DeBoer’s gift to the Vegas Golden Knights was a goalie controversy, the team’s first missed playoffs appearance, and an injured goalie who is getting peppered in lawsuits. It has been a no good, very bad Las Vegas vacation for Robin Lehner.

We already told you about the misfortunes (and lack of fortunes) in the Robin Lehner household. If you didn’t hear about it, long story short, he’s broke. He and his wife filed for bankruptcy at the end of last year. He filed for bankruptcy in home country of Sweden after a business deal went awry. He defaulted on his Missouri snake farm loan. A solar tech business went belly up. The bankruptcy filing claim they owe over $27,000,000 to creditors.

One of those creditors, it turns out, has a bone to pick with Panda.

What one of Robin Lehner’s lenders wants a judge to do…

That creditor is Aliya Growth Fund. The company offers pro athletes “alternative financing solutions” when traditional financing isn’t available to them. Well, Robin took a loan with them to the tune of $4,750,000.

Aliya claims he used that debt to pay down other debts from two other creditors.

So what’s the big deal? Many people consolidate debts and roll them into a new debt. Well… the issue is his contract with the Vegas Golden Knights, valued at $5,000,000 a year, was used as “collateral” in the Aliya loan… AND another loan he was attempting to pay down. So, essentially two lenders thought they’d have his contract to lean back on if he defaulted… not knowing the other lender had it too. Which means half the collateral.

To say it’s been a less than ideal run for Lehner in Las Vegas is an understatement. His legal issues are further exasperating that.
