  • Blues' Jori Lehtera: Goal drought continues

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/6/17) Lehtera tallied an assist in Monday's win over the Flyers.

    Those who drafted Lehtera knew they weren't drafting a goal scorer, but not finding twine in the last 10 games is discouraging. The Finland native has clocked 14:40 TOI over those past 10 games, adding only three assists. Although having no presence on the power play, Lehtera makes his minutes count by being on a line with Vladimir Tarasenko (23 goals, 52 games). As long as he's on a line with the Blues' top scorer, the center will be in a position for assists by default.

    Blues' Jori Lehtera: Ends goal drought in Saturday's win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/15/17) Lehtera posted a goal with a plus-1 in Saturday's 4-0 road victory against the Sharks.

    Lehtera snapped an 11-game goalless skid dating back to Dec. 15. After a 44-point rookie campaign in 2014-15, he took a step back with 34 points last season. Now, Lehtera is on pace to see a second straight decrease in season points. He has struggled most of the year and can only be trusted in the deepest of fantasy pools.

    Blues' Jori Lehtera: Tallies in Thursday's win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/16/16) Lehtera scored his fourth goal of the season in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Devils. He finished with two shots on net, one hit and one blocked shot in 12:07 of ice time.

    Lehtera got himself to the front of the net and changed the direction of Robby Fabbri's shot/pass to score his first goal in 10 games. He's barely been noticeable since returning from a one-game scratch, having picked up an assist, four PIM and fired just one shot on goal during the five games leading up to Thursday. Lehtera had the least amount of ice time among the top-nine forwards against the Devils, but a player centering a line with Fabbri and Vladimir Tarasekno offers a possibility every night.

    Blues' Jori Lehtera: Picks up assist Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/10/16) Lehtera had an assist, one hit and a plus-2 rating in 13:16 of ice time in Friday's 4-1 win over New Jersey.

    Lehtera's been back in the lineup for three games after a one-game wake-up call as a healthy scratch. Some players hear the message being sent by the coach and come back with renewed drive, but there's been little sign of Lehtera being driven. Friday's game was his best of the three and the first time he skated on the power play, but a player can fall into points and a positive plus-minus rate while skating on a line with Vladimir Tarasenko and Robby Fabbri. In three games back, Lehtera has yet to direct a shot toward the net and picked up two high-sticking penalties during the first period of Thursday's loss to the Islanders. His line was responsible for two goals Friday, which should be enough to keep the struggling center active Sunday when the Blues play the Wild in Minnesota, but he's not yet at the level where coach Ken Hitchcock wants.

    Blues' Jori Lehtera: Returns Tuesday after one-game scratch

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/7/16) Lehtera had one hit and a minus-2 rating in 13:23 of ice time in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win against Montreal.

    Blues coach Ken Hitchcock had delivered a message the previous game when he made Lehtera a healthy scratch for the first time in his career in St. Louis. The coach talked about the need for Lehtera to have a greater impact. His final numbers don't suggest a positive impact -- zero shots, minus-2 rating, no time on the power play -- but after starting the game on the third line, he was elevated to a top-six role in the second period, skating with familiar wingers like Vladimir Tarasenko, Jaden Schwartz and Robby Fabbri. His usage Tuesday suggests he'll remain in the active lineup when the puck drops Thursday against the Islanders.

  • April 2, 2015: Two-Point Evening For Blues' Lehtera
    Lehtera scored a goal and picked up an empty-net assist Thursday in a 4-1 win over Calgary.Things have been slow for Lehtera of late, as his last multi-point game came March 10, and he'd managed just a goal and an assist in 10 games between then and Thursday. In fact, Lehtera had gone without a shot on goal in three of four games before firing five -- his most since Nov. 11 -- against Jonas Hiller on Thursday.
