Jori Lehtera: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Lehtera suffered a knee injury and was limited to 25 games for Sibir Novosibirsk of the Russian KHL. He was having a productive season before the knee injury and never was right afterward. The Blues would like to see a more complete game from Lehtera, but at this point, he's not in the team's plans.
Lehtera has been burning up the Finnish League (SM-liiga) for the past three seasons and is expected to play in the KHL for Lokomotiv in 2010-11. The Blues signed him to an entry-level contract this summer, in order to retain his NHL rights. He's a gifted puck-handler and passer, combined with a deadly scoring touch -- something the Blues need right now. He's not much in the two-way game and needs to improve his physical play.
