Avalanche's Artturi Lehkonen: Contributes assist

Lehkonen notched an assist, two hits and two PIM in Wednesday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Blues in Game 5. Lehkonen and Mikko Rantanen swapped places in the lineup at even strength, with the former moving up to the top line. It paid off early, with Lehkonen setting up Nathan MacKinnon's opening tally at 3:51 of the first period. The helper was Lehkonen's first in nine playoff outings, but he's been steady with four goals, 18 shots on net, 24 hits, 14 PIM and a plus-6 rating in a top-six role. He'll likely continue to play an important role as an all-situations winger.

Avalanche's Artturi Lehkonen: Tallies twice Saturday

Lehkonen scored twice on five shots, added two hits, blocked two shots and went plus-2 in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Blues in Game 3. Lehkonen's second-period tally on a feed from Nazem Kadri stood as the game-winner. The 26-year-old Lehkonen added an empty-net goal in the third. He doubles his goal and point totals for the playoffs with this performance -- he's up to four tallies in seven contests. The winger's added 14 shots on net, 19 hits, 10 PIM and a plus-4 rating in a second-line role.

Avalanche's Artturi Lehkonen: Buries goal in win

Lehkonen scored a goal on three shots, added two hits and picked up a misconduct penalty in Tuesday's 7-2 win over the Predators in Game 1. Lehkonen ended David Rittich's night at 15:04 of the first period with the Avalanche's fifth goal. At the end of the second, Lehkonen got mixed up with Philip Tomasino, earning both forwards 10-minute misconducts. Lehkonen ended the season with nine points in 14 contests in April while playing in a second-line role. The Finn's prominent role in the lineup should make him a solid scorer, though he's unlikely to outshine the Avalanche's more talented forwards.

Avalanche's Artturi Lehkonen: Leads team in shots

Lehkonen had a team-high five shots on net in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Penguins. Lehkonen had his best game since joining the Avalanche and had a few good scoring chances. He remained on the second line for a third straight game and looks like a player that could stick around in a top-six role until the playoffs, when Gabriel Landeskog (knee) and Nazem Kadri (upper body) are ready to return.

Lehkonen had two shots and two hits over 17:59 of ice time in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Sharks. Lehkonen made his second appearance in a Colorado uniform and opened the game on the second line again. He later took third-period shifts on the top line with Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen. In addition to his even-strength work, Lehkonen skated on both special teams. He's still looking for his first point as a member of the Avalanche, but it should happen sooner rather than later if he remains a member of the productive top six forwards.
