Sabres’ Lehner to honor Officer Lehner with jersey

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Buffalo Sabres goalie Robin Lehner will be honoring Officer Craig Lehner on Friday.

He will be wearing a jersey that says “C. Lehner” during warmups. Normally, Lehner wears the number 40 on his jersey, but this jersey features the number 43 for Officer Lehner’s radio call sign — K-9 43.

Here is a Sabres Twitter photo of Lehner holding the jersey:

The Sabres will play the Florida Panthers at the KeyBank Center at 7 p.m. It is their Military Appreciation game.
