(Montreal) Montreal Canadians on Saturday announced a one-season, 2.3 million contract extension to forward Arthuri Leconen.
Lehkonen, who has just completed the last year of his two-year contract, signed in 2019, is a free agent with compensation. He has pocketed $ 2.4 million over the past two seasons. Lehkonen will be a free agent with compensation with the right to arbitration at the conclusion of his new contract.
Lehkonen was one of seven players to receive a qualifying offer from the Canadians on Monday. Among the free agents who have paid compensation is now the focus on Canadians’ priority record of Jesperi Kotkanimi and Ryan Pohling.
Lehkonen, 26, scored seven goals and six assists in 47 games last season, adding three goals and one assist to his playoff record. It is especially distinguished by its continuous forward check and defensive missions.
Canadians fans are also indebted to him for advancing to the Stanley Cup Final on Midsummer’s Day, the most important goal of the season.
Lekhonen second round pick (55E Total) Canadians in the 2013 Draft.
Finn played 338 career NHL games, with all the hobs. He has 61 goals and 59 assists this season, as well as six goals and six assists in 33 playoff games.
