A man known for making a lot of great saves on the ice, Dallas Stars’ starting goaltender Kari Lehtonen has been making more great saves with Carter BloodCare. Kari feels passionately about giving blood. Like any team player, Lehtonen was ready to join the Carter BloodCare mission to give life to the community, and was excited to make a donation that could save up to three lives.
Kari Lehtonen has been the Dallas Stars’ starting goaltender since he was drafted to the team in 2010. A star hockey player from Helsinki, Finland, Lehtonen was the second drafted overall in the 2002 NHL draft, joining the Atlanta Thrashers and becoming the highest drafted European goaltender in history. In 2010, Lehtonen joined the Dallas Stars and finished his first season in Dallas with a 34-24 record.
Like the rest of us at Carter BloodCare, Kari was excited for the Dallas Stars and Carter BloodCare to team up this February.
