Jori Lehtera believes that a fresh start in Philadelphia will be good for his career.
Lehtera was traded from St. Louis to Philadelphia as part of the deal that sent Brayden Schenn to the Blues on draft day. Lehtera struggled last season, as he just 22 points in 64 games in his final year in St. Louis. But the veteran believes switching teams will do him some good. "I have no idea why (the Blues traded me), but I think it’s better for me that I got traded, so I don’t really care why," said Lehtera. "That’s the business part of hockey. It’s always tough to leave when you know all of the guys and the city. But hockey-wise, it’s going to be good for me. I didn’t play well at the end, but I think a new start will be really good for me." The change might help make him more productive, but don't expect him to be relevant in standard fantasy leagues.
