Avalanche Face Long-Term Absence of Key Forward
The Colorado Avalanche are grappling with a significant loss. Insider Elliotte Friedman has reported that forward Artturi Lehkonen is likely to be sidelined long-term.
During a game against the Seattle Kraken, Lehkonen was injured following a heavy hit into the boards by Kraken defenseman Jamie Oleksiak.
Lehkonen was hospitalized, and according to Head Coach Jared Bednar, is expected to miss several weeks due to a neck injury.
In light of this development, Friedman has indicated that the Avalanche might seek to reinforce their offense through a new acquisition, compensating for Lehkonen's absence. Lehkonen has scored 3 goals and amassed 8 points in 12 games this season, contributing to Colorado's 11-5-0 record.
