It’s Alex Newhook’s time to shine with Artturi Lehkonen out

It was seemingly all sunshine and rainbows in last night's dominant victory over the Montreal Canadiens. Former Hab Artturi Lehkonen was shown a tribute video and followed that up by scoring a goal on the next shift. He ended the night with two tallies and, unfortunately, a broken finger. This injury will put Lehky out "four to six weeks," according to head coach Jared Bednar who was interviewed on Altitude SR's Moser Lombardi & Kane this morning. This injury marks another colossal loss for Colorado's top 6 forward unit, which has been without its best centerman all season.
