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.

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.
