"I've got no plans to talk to another team at this point," Lehner told Newsday's Andrew Gross. "From my understanding, that's not (general manager) Lou (Lamoriello's) intention either. Hopefully, it works out so we can finish what we have started."
Lehner said prior to the draft that he loves his teammates and hopes to re-sign with New York.
The 27-year-old joined the Islanders on a one-year contract last summer, a deal that became one of the season's best signings. Lehner posted a 25-13-5 record along with a .930 save percentage to help the Isles return to the playoffs while only counting for $1.5 million against the cap.
Lehner was a Vezina Trophy finalist thanks to his sterling numbers and took home the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy for best exemplifying perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to the sport.
