30-28-58p in 55 games did not even go to a nomination...
There is probably some unwritten rule that the player shouldn't have established himself in any other major league before playing in the SEL. Lehtonen had played 150 games in the AHL and 107 games in SM-Liiga before he came to Sweden.
Also, before this season I'm not sure if a non- Swedish player could be nominated to begin with.
