Lehkonen was promoted to the top line for Wednesday's practice, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.

Head coach Claude Julien shook up his lines, something he hopes will jump-start a dormant offense when the Habs host the Maple Leafs on Saturday. Lehkonen joins the top trio, which has been Montreal's most productive unit over the last two seasons. Julien tried out Lehkonen with Max Pacioretty and Jonathan Drouin, among other line changes, during the third period of Tuesday's 3-1 loss to Chicago.
