  • Stars' Kari Lehtonen: Set to start Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/10/17) Lehtonen will get the starting nod for Monday's road showdown against the Rangers, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

    Lehtonen has been a middling No. 2 option for the Stars this season with a 2.71 GAA and .903 save percentage to go with a 3-4-1 record. The 6-foot-4 netminder picked up a victory over a tough Blues team in his last start, though, giving up just two goals on 26 shots.

    Stars' Kari Lehtonen: Makes 24 saves in loss to Blues

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/8/17) Lehtonen saved 24 of 26 shots during Thursday's 3-2 loss to St. Louis.

    With Ben Bishop nursing a back injury, Lehtonen could be in line for a fleeting uptick in value. The veteran Finn owns a .914 save percentage and 2.34 GAA through three appearances since returning from a personal leave, and with the Stars' high-powered offense providing goal support, Lehtonen has the potential to reward. Still, Bishop could return in short order, so it's a situation to monitor.

    Stars' Kari Lehtonen: Starting Thursday in St. Louis

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/6/17) Lehtonen will patrol the crease in Thursday's road game against the Blues, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

    Ben Bishop is day-to-day with a sore back, so Lehtonen will take over as the Stars' starting netminder until Bishop is cleared to return. The 34-year-old netminder hasn't been great in limited action this season, posting a 3-3-1 record while registering a sub-par 2.80 GAA and .900 save percentage in nine appearances. He'll look to get back in the win column Thursday in a tough road matchup with a Blues club that's averaging 3.50 goals per game at home this season, eighth in the NHL.

    Stars' Kari Lehtonen: Gives up two after entering in second

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/6/17) Lehtonen allowed two goals on 17 shots after replacing an ineffective Ben Bishop early in the second period of Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Predators.

    Lehtonen fared only marginally better after Bishop got the hook following three Nashville goals on 15 shots. The Finnish netminder's 2.80 GAA and .900 save percentage are right in line with his performances from the past three campaigns, so he's unlikely to challenge Bishop for the top spot in goal barring a serious slump from the starter.

    Stars' Kari Lehtonen: Gets better of Avalanche

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/4/17) Lehtonen turned aside 25 of 27 shots in a 7-2 win over Colorado on Sunday.

    The Stars provided the veteran netminder plenty of offense in this one, helping him earn just his third victory of the season. Lehtonen had sat out the prior six games in favor of Ben Bishop, which isn't surprising considering the Finn had allowed a combined six goals on 35 shots in starts Nov. 18 and 14. He'll continue to be a distant No. 2 to Bishop going forward, but could prove to be a serviceable spot start depending on the opponent.
