Montreal Canadiens left-winger Artturi Lehkonen was a healthy scratch Thursday for a game against the Washington Capitals.

Lehkonen, 24, took both the pre-game skate and warm-ups. There was no immediate word as to why he was made a scratch.

He has 12 goals and 13 assists in 62 games this season for the Canadiens, his fourth year with the team.

The Finn was Montreal’s second-round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft.
