2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
On paper, it looks as though Lehkonen took a step back last season after an impressive rookie campaign. He had 12 goals and nine assists over 66 games in 2017-18, a regression from the 18/10 line he posted in 73 games the previous year. However, the last memory we have is t... read more
On paper, it looks as though Lehkonen took a step back last season after an impressive rookie campaign. He had 12 goals and nine assists over 66 games in 2017-18, a regression from the 18/10 line he posted in 73 games the previous year. However, the last memory we have is that eight of his 21 points and seven of his 12 goals came in the final 15 games. A more meaningful silver lining than his finish is that Lehkonen was second on the team in individual scoring chances and third in high-danger opportunities, per Natural Stat Trick. A 7.3 shooting percentage, less than the league average, suggests the second-year forward was snakebitten. He plays both ends of the ice well, a trait near and dear to the heart of head coach Claude Julien, and that alone should get him top-six minutes and time on the power play. Lehkonen is someone to watch in 2018-19.

  2. Artturi Lehkonen 2017–18 Preseason Outlook
    Lehkonen, a 2013 second-round draft pick, chose to spend the last few seasons in Europe instead of the American Hockey League. That was a wise choice, as he came to North America as a 21-year-old and showed off an advanced hockey IQ -- acquired by facing older competition in Scandinavia. He made a seamless transition to the smaller rinks, using an accurate and quick release to score 18 goals, and he was one of the Canadiens’ top players in the postseason. Both GM Michel Therrien and head coach Claude Julien seemed to trust him as a defensive forward, yet he exceeded expectations by evolving into an important secondary source of offense while playing mostly third-line minutes. With a year under his belt and perhaps some added heft to his frame, Lehkonen could earn a regular spot as a second-line left winger and thus has definite sleeper appeal heading into the 2017-18 campaign.
  3. Artturi Lehkonen 2013–14 Preseason Outlook
    Lehkonen, a second-round draft pick in the 2013 draft, was the rookie of the year for Kalpa in Finland's SM-Liiga in 2012-13. He has high offensive talent, but adding some bulk will help him at the NHL level. The 18-year-old sniper will return to skate for Kalpa this coming season.
