After a blistering start for both Jori Lehtera and Vladimir Tarasenko in the KHL this year, the Blues' two high-profile prospects have both cooled off slightly. Tarasenk continues to lead the KHL in goals with nine, and his 9-9-18 scoring line in 15 games has him in fourth place among all KHL scorers. Lehtera, with a 7-10-17 line in 15 games, has dropped out of the KHL's top five scorers.
