Lehkonen now has 14 points in 26 games this season, which on the surface is half-decent. Yet Lehkonen is a small-sized winger whose ample ice time has yet to translate into any tangible fantasy-relevant point production. Lehkonen has 57 shots-on-goal this season —fifth most amongst all Montreal Canadiens —but just four goals to show for it —a shooting percentage of just .070. Simply put, there are far more reliable scorers on the waiver wire each week.

Lehkonen is coming off of a 20 point season, and Wednesday nights goal was equal parts hustle and a good bounce. The 22-year-old is looking to make a leap in point production this season, and an opening night goal is a good start.
Lehkonen scored two goals and had an assist during Montreal's 4-1 win versus Florida. He also had five shots on goal in 14:05 minutes of ice time.
