Jori Lehtera is expected to be back in the lineup Monday.

Lehtera has been a healthy scratch of late and deservedly so as he has only two assists in 14 games. He should be joined on the fourth line by Dale Weise as Taylor Leier and Jordan Weal are expected to be healthy scratches. Lehtera was acquired from St. Louis in the off-season with a couple of first round picks for Brayden Schenn, a deal that does not look good in the early stages of the season as Schenn has been a stud for St. Louis.

Jori Lehtera drew into the Flyers' lineup for the first time on Thursday.

Lehtera was a healthy scratch for the Flyers' first six games of the 2017-18 campaign. He skated alongside Valtteri Filppula and Wayne Simmonds and logged 12:06 minutes of ice time. "Lehts did a good job," Flyers coach Dave Hakstol said. "To step in in game No. 7, not having played, I thought Lehts went out and played a real rock solid game. Lehts has been here. Lehts has done the work. You guys don’t see behind the scenes the kind of effort and what that takes as a teammate every day to stay ready."

Jori Lehtera might make his Flyers debut on Thursday.

Lehtera, who was acquired from St. Louis over the summer, has been a healthy scratch for six straight games to open the campaign. However, Wayne Simmonds is questionable with a lower-body injury and if he isn't available, then the Flyers might look to Lehtera to help fill the void. "I’m still excited," Lehtera said recently. "Camp wasn’t good. I wouldn’t say terrible, it was OK. I’m kind of still looking to find my spot. When I get my opportunity, I’m going to take my spot. Where it is, I don’t know."
