Oleskiak Faces Consequences for Injuring Lehkonen

The recent game between the Colorado Avalanche and the Seattle Kraken was marked by a notable tension, following the injury of Artturi Lehkonen from the Avalanche. This was their first encounter since Lehkonen's injury.

Lehkonen's injury occurred nearly a week earlier when he was pushed into the boards by Jamie Oleksiak of the Kraken, leading to Lehkonen being sidelined for a considerable duration.




MacDermid's Response to Oleksiak



The latest game saw immediate action from Kurtis MacDermid of the Avalanche, who targeted Oleksiak right from the start.


Despite comments from Colorado's coach Jared Bednar suggesting no ill intent from Oleksiak, his players sought to stand up for their injured teammate. Their response culminated not only in a physical confrontation but also in a dominant 5-1 victory.
