Jori Lehtera drew into the Flyers' lineup for the first time on Thursday. Lehtera was a healthy scratch for the Flyers' first six games of the 2017-18 campaign. He skated alongside Valtteri Filppula and Wayne Simmonds and logged 12:06 minutes of ice time. "Lehts did a good job," Flyers coach Dave Hakstol said. "To step in in game No. 7, not having played, I thought Lehts went out and played a real rock solid game. Lehts has been here. Lehts has done the work. You guys don’t see behind the scenes the kind of effort and what that takes as a teammate every day to stay ready."

Jori Lehtera might make his Flyers debut on Thursday. Lehtera, who was acquired from St. Louis over the summer, has been a healthy scratch for six straight games to open the campaign. However, Wayne Simmonds is questionable with a lower-body injury and if he isn't available, then the Flyers might look to Lehtera to help fill the void. "I’m still excited," Lehtera said recently. "Camp wasn’t good. I wouldn’t say terrible, it was OK. I’m kind of still looking to find my spot. When I get my opportunity, I’m going to take my spot. Where it is, I don’t know."

Jori Lehtera will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Nashville Predators. Lehtera was acquired from the Blues this off-season, but he still hasn't suited up in a game for Philadelphia. Samuel Morin and Brandon Manning will also be scratched in this game. None of these three players will have any fantasy value this season.

Jori Lehtera will be scratched from the Flyers' lineup before their meeting against the Anaheim Ducks Saturday night. Lehtera was acquired this offseason by the Flyers in a deal that sent Brayden Schenn to St. Louis. He's coming off a season where he only scored seven times in 64 games. His rebirth in Philadelphia will have to wait for the time being as he'll sit out Saturday's game.

Jori Lehtera could move to wing this upcoming season. Lehtera has been a center for most of his NHL career, but it sounds like he'll get a look on the wing. "I played there in Olympics, World Cup and World Championships, so it’s not weird," Lehtera said. "I don’t think it matters if you have a good centerman it doesn’t matter if you’re a winger. It was a good first start." The 29-year-old is coming off a disappointing season in St. Louis, as he had just seven goals and 15 assists in 64 games.

Jori Lehtera scored a goal and registered an assist in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Islanders on Sunday. It was just Lehtera's first preseason game so obviously we can't read much into it. Still it's encouraging to see him start on a positive note as he seeks to step up in Philadelphia after being dealt by St. Louis. Mike Vecchione netted the Flyers' other goal.
