Lehtinen will represent Finland in his fifth Olympic Games (also 1994, 1998, 2002, 2006) and first international appearance since the 2007 World Championships. He has 11-9--20 points in 26 career Olympic games, collecting a silver and two bronze medals. He has represented Finland 66 times in international contests, recording 22-26--48.
There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.'
