Vegas Golden Knights goaltender Robin Lehner on Tuesday said he's encouraged by his talks with the NHL and NHLPA after accusing teams of giving players pain medication without prescriptions in a controversial Twitter thread Saturday.

Lehner intended to bring attention to the stalemate between the Buffalo Sabres and Lehner's former teammate Jack Eichel over his options for neck surgery. But his accusations that teams are pushing benzodiazepines and Ambien to players without prescriptions garnered the most attention, including from the NHL.
