Shockwave in Colorado: The worst news is confirmed for Artturi Lehkonen

BY MARCO    MARCH 14, 2023  (11:16)
In the final minutes of his media availability, Colorado Avalanche head coach Jared Bednar proceeded to announce the verdict on forward Artturi Lehkonen, and it was the worst possible scenario.

"Bednar on Lehkonen:

"It will be four to six weeks. Maybe more. It's a huge loss."

So Lehkonen's season is obviously over, as there are only three weeks left in the Avalanche's season. He could return for the playoffs, but that's if Colorado goes all the way and were to make it to the conference finals.


Remember that Lehkonen left last night's game against the Montreal Canadiens with a finger injury and never returned.

We then learned that his finger is fractured and that he was sent directly to Colorado for surgery.

Lehkonen, 27, ends his first full season in Colorado with 20 goals and 29 assists (49 points) in 62 games. A 65 point / 82 game pace.
