Top Artturi Lehkonen News

  • Avalanche's Artturi Lehkonen: Moves to top line

    Lehkonen scored a power-play goal on one shot and added an assist and a hit in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Wild.

    Lehkonen is riding a six-game point streak, during which he has four goals and three assists. He took up residence on the top line, as Mikko Rantanen (concussion) was unavailable. Lehkonen has history on the first line and should slot seamlessly alongside Nathan MacKinnon and Jonathan Drouin for as long as Rantanen is out. Lehkonen has 16 goals (seven on the power play) and 16 assists through 42 games.

    Lehkonen (illness) is slated to return to action versus Edmonton on Saturday, Jesse Montano of Guerilla Sports reports.

    Lehkonen looks poised to return from a two-game absence due to his illness.

  • Avalanche's Artturi Lehkonen: Won't return Wednesday

    Lehkonen (illness) will miss his second straight game when the Avalanche face Vancouver on Wednesday, Evan Rawal of Colorado Hockey Now reports.

    Lehkonen has 11 goals and 22 points in 30 outings in 2023-24. The 28-year-old might still be an option Saturday versus Edmonton. Once he's healthy enough to play, Lehkonen will probably serve in a top-six capacity and on the first power-play unit. His eventual return will also likely result in Brandon Duhaime's role being diminished.

    Lehkonen scored a power-play goal on his only shot of the game and had an even-strength assist over 20:17 of ice time in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Lightning.

He had one assist over the first six games back but has posted six points (three goals, three assists) over the last two contests. While he has been moved off the top line -- the result of line tweaking amid Colorado's slump -- Lehkonen remains an integral part of the Avalanche's lead power-play unit.
