Insight: He stopped 43-of-46 shots on goal, and is now 3-0-2 with a 2.92 GAA and a .913 save percentage. Owners should continue to start Lehtonen with confidence.
 
10/18/2014 1:57:00 PM
Description: Dallas goalie Kari Lehtonen will get the start Saturday against Philadelphia.
Insight: He earned a win last time out against Pittsburgh, and owners should not be afraid to put him into their lineups.
 
10/16/2014 9:48:00 PM
Description: Dallas goalie Kari Lehtonen won his second game of the season on Thursday night.
Insight: He defeated the Penguins, while stopping 27-of-29 shots on goal. Lehtonen should be considered a second option at the goaltender position, moving forward.

Insight: He sat out four games with a concussion, though one of those games was later postponed. Lehtonen's return will push veteran Tim Thomas (18-21-4, 2.90 GAA) back to the bench.
 
3/17/2014 7:09:00 PM
Description: Stars netminder Kari Lehtonen (concussion) will be available for Tuesday's game, according to the Dallas Morning News.
Insight: It's unknown if Lehtonen will start Tuesday against the Penguins, but we know he'll at least be available as a backup after the Stars demoted Cristopher Nilstorp on Monday. Lehtonen suffered a concussion last Saturday when Minnesota's Erik Haula ran him over, causing his helmet to fly off and his head to hit the crossbar.
 
3/13/2014 5:25:00 PM
Description: Stars netminder Kari Lehtonen (concussion) skated before practice Thursday and is nearing a return, according to the Dallas Morning News.
Insight: "Kari is doing great," coach Lindy Ruff said. "He’ll see the doctors (Friday) to see if he can be cleared. If he’s cleared, he’ll keep progressing. He’s way ahead of where I thought he would be." Lehtonen suffered a concussion last Saturday when Minnesota's Erik Haula ran him over, causing his helmet to fly off and his head to hit the crossbar. Tim Thomas made his first start with the team Tuesday at St. Louis and will continue to handle the net until Lehtonen returns.

Description: Stars netminder Kari Lehtonen has officially been diagnosed with a concussion. SOURCE: Dallas Morning News
Insight: The injury occurred Saturday when Lehtonen took a brual hit from Minnesota left wing Erik Haula. Tim Thomas (17-20-3, 2.85 GAA) will handle the goalie work during Lehtonen's absence.
 
3/10/2014 12:13:00 PM
Description: Dallas goalie Kari Lehtonen likely suffered a concussion Saturday night and is doubtful for Monday's game against Columbus.
Insight: Minnesota's Erik Haula came in hard while trying to control the puck, lost control of his ability to stop when Dallas' Cody Eakin tripped out his right foot and barreled over Lehtonen. The goaltender's helmet flew off and his head hit the crossbar. The Stars just acquired Tim Thomas to serve as insurance for Lehtonen. Smart move.

The goaltender's helmet flew off and his head hit the crossbar. The Stars just acquired Tim Thomas to serve as insurance for Lehtonen, who has been injury-prone in his career.
 
Cold1/22/2014 12:14:00 AM
Description: Dallas goalie Kari Lehtonen only needed to make 18 save to shut out Minnesota 4-0 Tuesday night.
Insight: It breaks his three-game losing streak. He's 18-14-8 on the season with a 2.62 GAA and a .915 SV%.
 
Cold1/6/2014 10:19:00 PM
Description: Dallas goalie Kari Lehtonen has allowed 12 goals in his last two starts, including seven Monday against the Islanders.
Insight: The Stars tried to give Lehtonen the night off on Saturday, but Dan Ellis gave up three goals in the first period and Lehtonen ended up playing the final two. He has some favorable matchups coming up at New Jersey on Thursday and at the New York Rangers on Friday, but he can't be trusted right now.
 
10/24/2013 12:21:00 PM
Description: Dallas goalie Kari Lehtonen (lower body injury) is expected to start Thursday's game against Calgary.
Insight: Injuries have kept him out of five games this season but he owns a 2-1-0 record with a 1.57 GAA and .953 SV%.
 
10/18/2013 10:26:00 PM
Description: Dallas goalie Kari Lehtonen (lower body injury) worked out Friday but won't play Saturday or Sunday, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Description: Stars goaltender Kari Lehtonen left Friday's game against the Jets due to a lower-body injury.
Insight: Lehtonen had a shutout working through 34:30 but he had to come out. The goalie has a history of groin issues.
 
4/18/2013 6:35:00 PM
Description: Stars goaltender Kari Lehtonen (groin) will return to the crease Thursday to face the Canucks.
Insight: Lehtonen hasn't played since April 9. He gets nicked up often and wasn't playing well before his most recent injury, so fantasy owners can leave him on the bench.
 
4/12/2013 11:42:00 AM
Description: Stars goaltender Kari Lehtonen left Tuesday's game with a lower-body injury and is questionable for Friday's game against Nashville.
Insight: Lehtonen gets nicked up often and hasn't been playing well anyway. He had a 2.81 GAA in March and owns a 3.03 GAA this month. Richard Bachman saved all 22 shots in a relief effort Tuesday, though his 3.72 GAA and .860 save percentage won't excite fantasy owners.
