Vegas Golden Knights goaltender Robin Lehner has returned to Las Vegas due to a health issue with one of his family members, the team announced.

Vegas, which is currently on the road, is scheduled to play the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday.

It’s not known when Lehner could rejoin the team. The Golden Knights added that they’re looking forward to him returning “as soon as possible.”

Vegas is in a tight playoff race with seven games remaining on its schedule. The club is one point behind the Los Angeles Kings for third place in the Pacific Division.

Lehner, 30, has a 23-16-2 record this season with a .907 save percentage and 2.82 goals-against average.
