Canadiens sign Artturi Lehkonen to a 1-year deal
Lehkonen put up 13 points in 47 games during the 2020-21 regular season and scored three goals during the Habs' Stanley Cup Final run. The 26-year-old booked Montreal's ticket to its first finals appearance since 1993 after scoring in overtime to dispatch the Vegas Golden Knights in six games.
A solid part of the Canadiens' bottom-six forward group, Lehkonen also logged 37 minutes of shorthanded ice time in the postseason, which was the fifth-most among all NHL forwards.
Montreal selected Lehkonen in the second round of the 2013 NHL Draft, and he's put up 120 career points in 338 games.
