Small update on Lehtonen

From AJC Thrashers Blog:

Kari Lehtonen’s rehab is going strong. No setbacks or anything right now. He’s doing a lot of physical training, although the groin isn’t being tested. The priority is to keep him in shape and let the groin heal. Also, speculation that he wasn’t in good shape at the beginning of the season is being shot down by the team. I haven’t talked to anybody who had issues with Lehtonen’s conditioning this season. The fact is, it’s a different groin injury and just one of those things that happen in hockey.
Pretty great news. Word also is, he'll start skating again next week. Those weeks are flying by, and any day now, we should have our star goalie back. Until then, Heddy is doing a better-than-great job in his stead, but we personally can't wait to have Kari back.
