Lehner (upper-body) returned to practice on Wednesday.

Lehner missed the last three games with an upper-body injury that he suffered last Tuesday, but was back on the ice for practice on Wednesday. Thomas Greiss, who shutout the Blue Jackets on Monday, will likely start Thursday vs. Montreal but Lehner could be back for this weekend’s back-to-back (Sat. @ DET / Sun. @ MIN).

Lehner left Tuesday’s game and did not return.

Lehner was forced to leave Tuesday’s game against the Senators following a collision with Brady Tkachuk and did not return. The Islanders called Christopher Gibson from Bridgeport (AHL) on Wednesday morning, which suggests that Lehner will not travel to Ottawa for Thursday’s game. Look for Thomas Greiss to start tomorrow.

Lehner will start Tuesday vs. the Senators.

Lehner was pulled after allowing three goals on 13 shots in the Islanders 4-1 loss to the Flyers on Sunday. Despite a rough outing, Lehner will face the team that drafted him on Tuesday. He is a must-start against a Senators team that has torn their team apart—they have lost seven of their last eight while being outscored 35-to-16.
