For the season, the 27-year-old winger has thrived in a top-six role, putting up 15 goals, 34 points, 104 shots on net, 58 hits, 30 blocked shots and a plus-7 rating through 43 appearances.

He's up to 33 points, 101 shots on net, 57 hits, 30 blocked shots and a plus-7 rating through 42 outings overall. As long as he's playing alongside Nathan MacKinnon, fantasy managers should have room for Lehkonen on their rosters.

  • Avalanche's Artturi Lehkonen: Strikes first in win

    Lehkonen scored a goal on his lone shot and added two hits over 20:13 of ice time in Monday's 6-3 win over the Red Wings.

    Lehkonen got it all started six minutes into the first period with a wrister from the top of the circles. It was the second straight game with a tally for Lehkonen, who has four points over the last two contests. Playing on an offensively gifted team like Colorado has lifted Lehkonen's offense. The Finnish winger has 39 points (18 goals, 21 assists) over 55 games since being acquired by the Avalanche at the trade deadline last year.

    Lehkonen snapped a three-game mini-slump, helping out on goals by linemates Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen. The 27-year-old Lehkonen remains in a top-line role, which is good news for his scoring potential -- J.T. Compher has since moved down to the second line with MacKinnon returning from an injury Saturday. Lehkonen has nine goals, 16 helpers, 78 shots on net, 44 hits, 26 blocked shots and a plus-1 rating through 33 appearances this season.

  • Avalanche's Artturi Lehkonen: Gathers helper in loss

    Lehkonen recorded an assist, four shots on goal and two hits in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Sabres.

    Lehkonen has a goal and two assists in his last two games after going without a point in his first game back from missing three with an upper-body injury. The winger has been on the top line since he returned -- even with the Avalanche's injury problems, that should be a productive place in the lineup. He's at eight goals, 13 assists, 62 shots on net, 31 hits and a plus-3 rating through 25 appearances.

  • Avalanche's Artturi Lehkonen: Two points in second game back

    Lehkonen scored a shorthanded goal on two shots, added an assist, went plus-2 and logged three hits in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Flyers.

    Lehkonen put the Avalanche ahead in the second period and set up J.T. Compher's game-winning tally in the third. This was Lehkonen's second game back after he missed three with an upper-body injury. The Avalanche's depleted roster has allowed Lehkonen to see top-line minutes recently. The winger is certainly worthy of the role -- he has eight goals, 20 points, 58 shots on net, 29 hits and a plus-4 rating in 24 appearances, and he sees time in all situations.

  • Avalanche's Artturi Lehkonen: Expected back Sunday

    Lehkonen (upper body) will travel to St. Louis for Sunday's afternoon game against the Blues, Adrian Dater of Colorado Hockey Now reports. The puck drops at 3:00 p.m. EST.

    Lehkonen wore a regular jersey during Saturday's optional practice, which suggested he'd return Sunday and Dater confirmed as such. He'll be the second injured Avalanche forward to return to the ice after Valeri Nichushkin suited up Friday. Evan Rodrigues (lower body), who also skated Saturday, is not far behind.
