  • Stars' Kari Lehtonen: Struggles in relief
    By RotoWire Staff

    Lehtonen allowed two goals on 21 shots in relief for Ben Bishop during a 6-0 loss to the Canucks on Sunday. After an awful start for the Stars, things only got worse, as Lehtonen couldn't really contain the Canucks either, and the Stars ended their five-game winning streak in shocking fashion. Lehtonen didn't get the loss, so his five-game winning streak is still intact, but this performance did end his five-game streak of posting at least a .919 save percentage.

  • Lehtonen stopped 34 of 37 shots Friday in a 4-3 shootout win over Pittsburgh. Lehtonen doesn't get many opportunities, but when he's gotten them lately, he's stepped up. Not only has he won his past five starts, but he's held every opponent to three goals or less while maintaining a save percentage of .919 or higher in each outing. When Ben Bishop needs a night off, Lehtonen makes perfect sense as a fill-in option in any situation. He'll get most of his value in daily leagues.

  • Stars' Kari Lehtonen: Tough opponent on tap
    By RotoWire Staff

    Lehtonen will be sent between the pipes for Friday's home start against the Penguins, Mike Heika of The Dallas Morning News reports. The Stars opted to go with traditional starter Ben Bishop against the Blackhawks on Thursday night, which proved to be a fruitful decision as Bishop skated away with his 23rd win of the season. Lehtonen, on the other hand, looks much more comfortable in a condensed role. His rate stats (2.22 GAA and .919 save percentage) are his strongest in several years, and he's undefeated through four appearances in 2018. With all that said, there should be some apprehension among daily players in streaming Lehtonen against Pittsburgh, a team that is 7-3-0 over the past 10 games.

  • Lehtonen stopped 30 of 31 shots in Saturday's win over the Wild. The Stars scored six goals to support their netminder, but Lehtonen still made some key saves to pick up his fourth consecutive victory. The Dallas goaltender has turned his season around with an impressive stretch in which he's gone 7-2-0 in his last nine starts, posting a .934 save percentage in the process. He's been known for being inconsistent, but with Ben Bishop on the shelf right now after he was hit by a puck on the bench Thursday, Lehtonen currently makes for an attractive fantasy option in the cage.

  • Stars' Kari Lehtonen: Tending twine Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Lehtonen will guard the cage against the Wild on Saturday, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports. Lehtonen will make consecutive starts for the first time since mid-December after Ben Bishop was hit in the face with a puck while sitting on the bench Thursday. With their No. 1 temporarily sidelined, the 33-year-old Lehtonen will take over starting duties for the time being with a call-up coming from AHL Texas to serve as the backup.
