He's 25 and has been playing in the next best league, so he should be able to handle the physicality.
Cajanek could be considered a decent comparison on how he came over and went straight to the NHL at 27. Honestly, I'd be happy if Lehtera puts up similar production to Cajanek, 40-50 points would be great.
