It’s not very common for a professional athlete to file for bankruptcy right in the middle of his playing career, but one active athlete has found himself in that unacceptable position.

According to, Las Vegas Golden Knights goaltender Robin Lehner has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy with liabilities of between $10 million and $50 million. According to the report, a major point of contention in the filing is Lehner’s financial obligations in his ownership of an exotic snake farm he purchased back in 2017.
