In the most recent episode of his podcast, insider Elliotte Friedman shared important information involving former Montreal Canadiens forward Artturi Lehkonen. It doesn't look good.

Friedman revealed that Lehkonen's injury is unfortunately more serious than anticipated.

As a result, the Colorado Avalanche are very active in the trade market to fill this loss. They are working to finalize a trade.

«Friedman on 32TP mentions it looks like Lehkonen's injury is pretty significant and the Avalanche are in the market to add some depth scoring.» - NHL Watcher



So, don't be surprised if the Avalanche announces an acquisition soon.

Could a player like Joel Armia be of temporary interest to them? Stay tuned, but it is known that Kent Hughes and the Avalanche's GM have a very good business relationship.
