Playing career[edit]

Lehtivuori began his professional career with Ilves.[1] He left Ilves on April 27, 2009 and joined the National Hockey League (NHL) club Philadelphia Flyers.[2]

Lehtivuori did not play any games for the Philadelphia Flyers organization in the 2008–09 season.

Playing in 66 games, he scored 5 goals and 23 points. Halfway through his second season with the Phantoms, Lehtivuori was loaned out to KalPa of the SM-liiga.[3] On August 18, 2011, Lehtivuori signed a one-week try-out contract with the Modo Hockey of the Elitserien (SEL).[4]

Lehtivuori played three seasons with HPK in the Liiga, before opting to leave as a free agent to sign a two-year contract with German outfit, Adler Mannheim of the DEL, on April 13, 2018.[5]
