Robin Lehner calls for Alain Vigneault’s Firing

Vegas Golden Knights goalie Robin Lehner called for the firing of Philadelphia Flyers head coach Alain Vigneault on Twitter tonight.

The veteran goaltender started a Twitter thread immediately after the Flyers’ 3-1 preseason win against the Capitals Saturday night.

Robin Lehner’s Tweets

Is it common for work places to give out benzodiazepines to employees when they travel and ambien ? Should that not be done by doctors or psychiatrist? Asking for a friend 👀 this doesn’t happen in Vegas to be clear. But I know many other teams. I also been in on teams that do?

#PhiladelphiaFlyers ? Dinosaur coach treating people robots not human. Fire these dinosaurs. Fire #vigneault first story. I got proof.. try to shake your way out of this one ….

And they say ambien is sleeping pill it’s funny that rehab told me that’s why didn’t have rem sleep. 8 years no rem sleep. Great. But yeah just sleeping pills

It’s currently unclear what all of this is about, although I’m sure it will become a big story in the coming days.

Lehner (30) is an active NHL goalie on a different team who has never played under Alain Vigneault. Nolan Patrick is the only former Flyers player on Vegas’ roster.

Robin Lehner recently retweeted NHL agent Allan Walsh, who quoted a tweet giving context about benzodiazepines.

Here’s Robin Lehner’s appearance on the Spittin’ Chiclets podcast Wednesday, he comes on during the 1:19:30 mark:
