Team: Aberdeen Wings (NAHL)
Height / Weight: 6-3 / 205
REPORT: MACPHERSON TOURNAMENT (JANUARY 31 – FEBRUARY 2, 2020)
Lehti played in three games for St. Andrew’s College in the MacPherson Tournament. He was excellent in the round robin game against Shattuck-St. Mary’s School. He made some really good saves in key moments and stopped all three penalty shot attempts in a 3-2 shootout win. His quickness was one thing that stood out in these games. He moved quickly post to post and covered lower parts of the net effectively. He displayed very quick reactions on multiple high danger shots from the slot. He had a quick glove as well. He challenged shooters on the top of the crease and did not give much room to shoot at. When he had to play the puck behind the net, he was calm and made the right decisions. He controlled rebounds well on low shots, using his pads to direct pucks out of danger. Lehti has a lot of potential and I would consider him a possible sleeper pick in the 2020 NHL Draft. He has been flying under the radar but I think he would be a worthwhile investment for a team late in the draft.
