Joonas Lehtivuori had a solid debut for Kalpa last night. The circumstances weren’t ideal with the jetlag and loan gear in practice. Lehtivuori didn’t get his own gear back until game time as he lost his luggage during the four flights he took from North America to Finland.
"Two bags were found in Paris and other two were somewhere else. I had to take four flights and there wasn’t much time to switch planes, so the bags got lost somewhere. Fortunately they were found before the game."
Lehtivuori admits he was tired, but overall the debut went well.
"It was about adjusting. I had just two practices before the game, so I’m not that familiar with the system yet. It felt pretty good towards the end of the game, but I started feeling the jetlag a bit in the third period."
Lehtivuori reveals that there were other clubs interested in his services as well, not just Kalpa.
"There were a few clubs after me, but we decided together with the Flyers that this would be the best option. There was no big drama about it."
Doesn't sound too good if he is considering leaving the NHL.
