Artturi Lehkonen's Player Profile

Lehkonen is a good all-around offensive talent. He possesses every desirable tool except size. His skating might not be explosive, but it is quality, and he displays solid speed and elusiveness. He has above-average puck skills, with quick movements and good coordination. His best skills, however, are his hockey sense and his shot. Lehkonen shows awareness and instinctual ability when creating scoring chances. He has impressive vision as a playmaker, and he regularly makes good passes. Despite these qualities, scouts do not unanimously love him. However, all agree that he is a goal scorer. He has a high-end shot, and a good ability to put himself in positions to score. He will need to bulk up at the next level, as he is a small, slight player. In spite of his size, he works hard on the ice, and his grittiness helps him overcome his stature. One additional area of concern: he suffered from concussion issues this season.

He is not overly big in size but skates well and has the potential to hear his named called out on the NHL Entry Draft podium in June. He was already selected in the second round of this year’s KHL Draft by SKA St. Petersburg. He definitely shows his offensive instincts as he has some sound stick handling, passing, and innate scoring abilities as he likes to shoot. Although he only found the back of the net once at NJEC, he is still young with a ’95 birthdate. Showed some drive as he took the puck to the net versus Sweden one game and got hauled down for the penalty shot. Despite the attempt on the weaker side with low pad save made by goalie it is was the initial outburst to the goal creating the opportunity that was impressive. He also competed hard during penalty kills and back-checked routinely.

Undersized winger makes up for it with extremely high skill level… Has great hands and ability to create time and space for himself… Competes hard but often loses battles due to lack of size/strength… Skating is adept but his stride lacks an element of explosiveness.
