The window for teams to negotiate with pending unrestricted free agents is officially open for the 2019 offseason, but New York Islanders netminder Robin Lehner isn't testing the market.

"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.

New York has over $20 million in projected cap space this summer, according to CapFriendly, and also needs to work out a new contract for team captain and pending UFA Anders Lee.
