2016 Finland World Cup of Hockey Roster: Jori Lehtera Centers Forwards

Team Russia's weak spot - goaltending - is Team Finland's strong suit, while Blues center Jori Lehtera is a pick for the forward corps.

Team Finland shouldn't have any problems in net, between Tuukka Rask and Pekka Rinne. While there's no such thing as a weak roster at the World Cup of Hockey, Finland's forwards don't have the offensive punch of Team Russia's. They'll have to balance that out with defense and goaltending. Blues center Jori Lehtera is a solid addition to Team Finland's core of forwards, but none of that group has cracked 20 goals yet this season. Let's hope for their sake that it's Tuukka Time in September.
