Philadelphia Flyers head coach Dave Hakstol confirmed a change to his lineup ahead of tonight's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins, as reported on Twitter by hockey insider Adam Kimelman earlier today. Forward Jori Lehtera will be back in the lineup, taking Trevor Leier's spot.

Lehtera, 30, has two points in 21 games played so far this season. He was acquired via trade from the St.Louis Blues last summer in a deal that sent Brayden Schenn to the Blues.

Leier, 23, was drafted 117th overall by the Flyers in 2012. He played 46 games in the NHL so far, registering six points. In 30 games played this season, the Saskatoon, Saskatchewan native has four points.

The Flyers are currently eight in the Metropolitan division with a record of 16-14-8.
