Canadiens' Artturi Lehkonen: Tickles twine again
Lehkonen had a goal on three shots along with four hits, a blocked shot and two PIM in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Penguins.
Lehkonen was in the penalty box when Pittsburgh tied the game at one goal apiece, but the hot winger atoned for his mistake later. Positioned in front of Casey DeSmith, Lehkonen was in the right place for a carom and banged home the Canadiens' second goal; his third goal in four games. He was rewarded for his recent offense by head coach Dominique Ducharme, who put him on a line with burgeoning stars Nick Suzuki and Cole Caufield. Lehkonen had one point over the first 13 games, but he's on a roll with nine points in the last 10 contests.... See More ... See Less
Canadiens' Artturi Lehkonen: Has second straight two-pointer
Lehkonen had a goal on four shots and an assist in Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the Capitals.
Lehkonen and linemate Jake Evans each had two points, the second straight game with multiple points for Lehkonen. He inadvertently set up Evans' first-period marker when a clearing attempt was redirected off his skate. The 26-year-old Finnish forward finished off the game's scoring when Brendan Gallagher hit him in stride late in the third period. Lehkonen had not scored over the first 19 games but got the monkey off his back with two markers over the last two contests.... See More ... See Less
Canadiens' Artturi Lehkonen: Lights first lamp in win
Lehkonen had a goal on three shots and an assist in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Predators. He added one hit and two penalty minutes over 16:16 of ice time.
Lehkonen started a rare Montreal scoring binge, doggedly working at the puck in front of Juuse Saros for his first goal of the season 2:41 into the contest. He later helped out on the first of Ryan Poehling's two goals. Lehkonen has been hot of late, with a pair of two-point games and six points over the last seven, which is partially the reason why he's been promoted from the fourth line to the third. Lehkonen's TOI has increased from 13:10 per game over the first 16 games to 16:42 over the last four.... See More ... See Less
Canadiens' Artturi Lehkonen: Heating up
Lehkonen recorded an assist and logged two hits in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Bruins.
Lehkonen racked up four assists in the last four games after starting the season incredibly cold. The 26-year-old winger has five helpers, 21 hits, 22 shots on net and an even plus-minus rating in 17 contests overall. He saw a season-high 18:41 of ice time Sunday and could be in line for more minutes if he continues to be productive.... See More ... See Less
Canadiens' Artturi Lehkonen: Slings assist from knees
Lehkonen had an assist, two hits and one blocked shot over 13:21 of ice time in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to Detroit.
Lehkonen picked up his third apple in the last three games early in the third period. He raced hard for a puck behind the Red Wings' goal line and slipped hard into the boards. By the time Lehkonen gathered himself, the puck came back to him, and from his knees he slung a backhand pass to a wide open Chris Wideman, who evened the score at two goals apiece. Lehkonen has four assists, 22 shots on goal, 19 hits and eight PIM over 16 games.... See More ... See Less
Canadiens' Artturi Lehkonen: Two helpers in loss
Lehkonen collected two assists in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Kings.
He chipped in on Ben Chiarot's goal in the first period and Jake Evans' tying tally in the third that forced OT. Lehkonen came into Tuesday with only one point, an assist, through 13 games to begin the season, and the 26-year-old's bottom-six role won't give him many opportunities to pick up the pace....

Canadiens' Artturi Lehkonen: Records first point
Lehkonen had an assist, one shot on goal, one hit and one blocked shot over 12:39 of ice time in Sunday's 4-2 loss to Anaheim.
Lehkonen and two other members of the Canadiens picked up their first points of the season late in the second period. Jeff Petry's blast from the point was stopped by the Ducks' John Gibson, before Lehkonen and then Jake Evans batted away at the bouncing puck. He played mostly on the fourth line but could move up due to injuries and a suspension when the Habs host the Red Wings on Tuesday. Already missing Paul Byron (hip), Montreal was without Mathieu Perreault (eye) and Brendan Gallagher (undisclosed) on Sunday. Throw in a two-game suspension for Cedric Paquette and it looks like Lehkonen could see a bump in responsibility this week.... See More ... See Less

Lehkonen had two shots on goal and seven hits in Monday's 5-1 loss to Tampa Bay in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals.
Lehkonen, the hero in Montreal's series-clinching win over Vegas, was part of a physical first period in which both teams combined for 45 hits. Since the beginning of the Vegas series, Lehkonen has registered 31 hits over seven games. Normally a bottom-half grinder, Lehkonen skated on the top line with Phillip Danault and Brendan Gallagher.... See More ... See Less

Lehkonen scored a goal on a team-high seven shots and added four hits in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Jets in Game 3.
Lehkonen put the Canadiens ahead 2-0 with his tally at 9:24 of the second period. The Finn has points in each of the last two games since he returned from an undisclosed injury, which accounts for all of his playoff offense. He's added nine shots on net, 16 hits and a minus-1 rating in five games. The 25-year-old has filled in for Jake Evans (concussion) on the top line -- that assignment has given him a bit of a scoring boost, albeit in a limited sample size.... See More ... See Less
Canadiens' Artturi Lehkonen: Earns assist in return
Lehkonen provided a shorthanded assist and two blocked shots in Friday's 1-0 win over the Jets in Game 2.
Lehkonen missed the last five games due to the mystery injury. His secondary helper on Tyler Toffoli's second-period goal was Lehkonen's first point in four postseason outings. The Finn worked in a top-line role, filling the void left by Jake Evans (concussion). In such an advanced role, Lehkonen could be worth a look in DFS for Sunday's Game 3.... See More ... See Less
Canadiens' Artturi Lehkonen: Available Friday
Lehkonen (undisclosed) is an option heading into Friday's matchup with the Jets, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.
With Jake Evans (concussion) out indefinitely, Lehkonen could slot into the lineup in his stead for Game 2 on Friday. If the winger does play, it would end a five-game stint on the shelf due to his undisclosed injury. If not Lehkonen, Michael Frolik could also be in contention to replace Evans in the lineup against Winnipeg.... See More ... See Less

Canadiens' Artturi Lehkonen: Expected to miss Monday's contest
Lehkonen (undisclosed) is set to miss out against the Leafs for Game 7 on Monday, John Lu of TSN.ca reports.
Through the first three playoff contests, Lehkonen failed to register a point and only put one shot on net, though he did dish out 11 hits while averaging 11:32 of ice time. Even once cleared to play, the 25-year-old winger is unlikely to break into the top six, which will limit him to mid-range fantasy value at best.... See More ... See Less
Canadiens' Artturi Lehkonen: Still sidelined
Lehkonen (undisclosed) isn't expected to be available for Saturday's Game 6 against the Maple Leafs, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports.
Lehkonen will need the Canadiens to prevail in Game 6 in order to have a shot at returning this season for a series-defining Game 7 on Monday. The 25-year-old winger went scoreless through the first three games of the series before going down with an undisclosed injury.... See More ... See Less
Canadiens' Artturi Lehkonen: Ruled out Thursday
Lehkonen (undisclosed) won't travel for Thursday's Game 5 clash in Toronto, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Prior to getting hurt, Lehkonen was stuck in a four-game pointless streak and has managed a meager three shots over that stretch, though he did dish out 11 hits while averaging 12:37 of ice time. With the winger on the shelf, youngster Cole Caufield figures to maintain his place in the top six and logging significant minutes on the power play.... See More ... See Less
