  • Stars' Kari Lehtonen: Workload set to shrink

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/11/17) The Stars acquired the rights to goaltender Ben Bishop on Tuesday. It's a signal that Lehtonen won't have a starting job next season.

    General manager Jim Nill is signaling that the two-headed beast of Lehtonen and Antti Niemi will not be the plan next season, regardless of whether the team is able to ink Bishop to a deal. There's a strong possibility that Lehtonen is at best a backup next season after finishing 2016-17 with a .902 save percentage over 59 games.

    Stars' Kari Lehtonen: 21 saves gets job done Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/9/17) Lehtonen stopped 21 of 24 shots in Saturday's shootout win over Colorado.

    Lehtonen didn't give a great performance in regulation, but he was strong in overtime and the shootout as Tyler Seguin netted the lone goal of the skills competition. His lackluster season concludes with him giving up 13 goals in his last three outings, dropping his save percentage to .902. The veteran was great at times this year, but ultimately he was too inconsistent to be a viable fantasy option in most leagues.

    Stars' Kari Lehtonen: Starting against Colorado

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/8/17) Lehtonen will be between the pipes at home against the Avalanche on Saturday.

    Lehtonen has been lackluster this season, but the Avalanche are the worst team in the NHL. They are dead last in goals scored and goals allowed per game. If Lehtonen was ever going to be a good bet to have a strong performance, it'd be in this matchup.

    Stars' Kari Lehtonen: Frustrated in relief apperance

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/6/17) Lehtonen was beaten five times on 26 shots in Tuesday's 7-3 home loss to the Predators.

    There's no doubt that Lehtonen's had his share of miserable outings this campaign, but then again, backstopping the league's worst penalty kill would put even the best netminder at a serious disadvantage. Lehtonen slammed his stick against the post after a Craig Smith shot was deflected off teammate John Klingberg and slid into the Dallas net, but the lumber didn't even break -- that's a microcosm of how things have gone for the Stars in 2016-17.

    Stars' Kari Lehtonen: Back to mediocrity in Sunday's loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/2/17) Lehtonen allowed five goals on 24 shots in Sunday's 6-3 loss against the Lightning.

    Lehtonen was rolling right along with a 1.32 GAA, .950 save percentage and a pair of shutouts over his previous six starts, so this was a disappointing showing, to say the least. The Stars face the Coyotes in Dallas on Tuesday, so look for Lehtonen to bounce back if he is tabbed for that favorable matchup.
