Basically what were hearing about Lehtera is that he is similar to Perron. Very skilled, and a little cocky, but needs to put it all together. A boom or bust prospect if you will.

Go Blues!

Did he somehow make it onto the clear day roster or will sneaking in under the "emergency" rule to get him playing time for as long as possible?
