I take it that means Lehtonen was one of the 12 forwards unfit to play. Jokerit is running 10 forwards today.

Scoring like a forward so far. He was back in action last night after sitting out since Oct 21.

Didn't hit the scoreboard, but still motoring

And now, to answer my question of, why did Mikko do a press circuit with Toronto media in the random middle of November:

Seems like the same route as Barabanov. Get over to Toronto and work with the Leafs to get ready for the season.

Lehtonen just played for the Jokers and now is playing with us.  Is it a coincidence? ;)

Makes sense. Might as well acclimatize here.

From the Athletic today:
You could probably file that humour under ?self-deprecating,? given the origins of his nickname: ?Finnish Bobby Orr,? as Joensuu heard it.
?I like to chirp guys and joke with the guys,? said Joensuu. ?And when I heard his nickname before I met him, I was like, excuse my language, ?This friging guy.? I thought he got it in junior because he was good and he kept that nickname. So I didn?t like it. But then I actually heard the story. He said he was in a tournament when he was 14. And he was skating up with the puck, and looking down at the ice. Somebody hit him really hard. How he told it, his gloves and helmets flew all over the place. That?s when the coach told him: ?You?re not Bobby Orr.? That?s how he got the nickname. When I heard that, I said, ?OK, now it?s a good nickname.? Nobody should be Wayne Gretzky unless it?s a chirp instead of praise.??
