Blues Forward Jori Lehtera Has Ankle Surgery

The St. Louis Blues announced today that forward Jori Lehtera underwent successful surgery on his right ankle on Aug. 4. Lehtera, 27, scored 14 goals and added 30 assists in his first NHL season with the Blues last season.

According to the Blues, Lehtera “suffered the injury at the end of last season and is expected to be available to skate in six to eight weeks.” Lehtera reportedly opted to rest the injury rather than have surgery immediately following the Blues exit from the playoffs, but now needed the surgery.

  1. hey something hockey related I like it!

    On a side note I watched the Don Cherry Grapevine show from 1982 with a young Wayne Gretzky and a guy playing a guitar and singing whoa!

    Don Cherry is 81 holy crap; good for him he looks great!

  2. And in other hockey related news – St. Louis coach Hitchcock dropped a few f-bombs and ate another doughnut.

  3. The Blues…hhahahahahhahaha…not even. An aptly named team. Hey didnt they actually get sold and moved to Saskatoon many years back? Don’t remember the deatils but the whole thing got nixed somehow. Too bad, maybe they would have become something.

  4. Let’s not rush to judgement and say that the ankle is the victim here. At this point we just don’t know.

  5. Flatliner – nice!

    Also don’t buy into the rumor that PK was seen drinking, with the ankle hanging all over him……
