Wednesday update: Kari Lehtonen to start Thursday vs. Canucks

Dallas Stars goaltender Kari Lehtonen will be in goal Thursday night when the Dallas Stars take on the Vancouver Canucks at American Airlines Center. Lehtonen, who missed the last three games due to a groin injury, said he is ready to go following Wednesday’s practice in Frisco.

“I feel good,” Lehtonen said. “I’ve had a couple of good days of practicing and I am excited to get back in there.”

Prior to the injury, which he suffered late in the first period of the April 9 game against Los Angeles, Lehtonen had started 19 consecutive games. He’s hoping the time off will give him a boost.

“I played a lot of games there in a row. Hopefully it was good to get a little time off,” he said. “We have a few games left and I am even more excited now to play. We’re in a good spot and trying to climb into the playoffs.”

Injury notes: Daley questionable with upper body injury; Chiasson out
