Jori Lehtera did not like the way the 2016-17 season went for him. "It was a bad season for myself," Lehtera said. "I thought everything is going to come, I don't have to work through this. But ... it didn't. So it's just I have to go back to the work-basis and have a great summer workout-wise, come here and show everybody again I can play much better hockey." He accounted for just seven goals and 22 points in 64 games. Lehtera will likely be exposed in the expansion draft, but that doesn't mean that Vegas will be interested.

Jori Lehtera logged just 7:00 of ice time in Game 4 against Nashville. He picked up an assist on the Blues' lone goal of the match in a 2-1 loss to the Predators. Kyle Brodziak was made a healthy scratch, so Lehtera filled in as the fourth-line center. Lehtera has one goal and three assists in six playoff appearances.

Jori Lehtera may have been a healthy scratch in three of his team's first five playoff games, but he came through in a big way on Friday night. The Blues were trailing 2-1 in the third period when Lehtera scored the game-tying goal. Teammate Vladimir Tarasenko eventually scored the winning goal to tie the series at one. "What it came down to basically was that we know what (Lehtera) is capable of and that we believe in him," head coach Mike Yeo said. "We didn’t feel it was quite there to that level. And we were happy to give him a chance to respond. Very happy for him. It shows up on the score sheet, but his competitive level right now is very high." Since being scratched in Games 2, 3 and 4 of the Blues' first-round series against Minnesota, Lehtera has picked up three points in three games.

Jori Lehtera found the back of the net in Friday's 3-2 win over the Nashville Predators. The Blues found themselves down 2-1 in the third period, but Lehtera scored a huge goal at the 7:39 mark to tie the game. Less than nine minutes after Lehtera made it 2-2, teammate Vladimir Tarasenko scored his second of the game to give St. Louis the lead and they never looked back. Since being a healthy scratch in Games 2, 3 and 4 of St. Louis' first-round series against Minnesota, Lehtera has responded by picking up three points in his last three games. The best-of-seven series is now tied 1-1. Game 3 will be played in Nashville on Sunday.
