Has there been any news about Kari Lehtonen in the finnish media this season? Is he done playing?
His wife is American and he has no interest on playing in Europe, I'd say he's done.

This article also says he had a couple (NHL) teams interested, but it didn't make sense for him financially and family wise.
Yeah, I'd say he's done. Can't help but to wonder how good he could've been without all the injuries he sustained.
I don't think he is in any financial trouble, especially living in Texas(?).
Real shame that his career basically just ended.
Could have been nice to play a season back in Jokerit, but doesn't really make any sense in his situation.
Great goalie, and would have been even greater if not for all the injuries.
