Jori Lehtera is too sick to play in Saturday's match with Carolina.

Given that the Blues have clinched their playoff berth, it's likely that they'll allow Lehtera Sunday to recover as well. If so, he'll finish the season with seven goals and 21 points in 63 games this season.

Jori Lehtera is dealing with an upper-body injury.

That stems from being struck in the face by the puck on Friday. He didn't travel with the Blues to Los Angeles so he's obviously out Monday and it seems reasonable to assume he'll also miss Wednesday's game in Anaheim and Thursday's contest in San Jose.

Ken Hitchcock's track record with respect to scratching top-nine forwards would lead one to believe that Jori Lehtera will play in the Blues' next game.

Hitchcock scratched Robby Fabrri for one game to get him going on November 10th. We expect that Hitchcock will put Lehtera back into the Blues' lineup Tuesday against Montreal. It's worked wonders for Fabrri.
