Kari Lehtonen's magic save

Russell LaBounty-USA TODAY Sports

Dallas Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen made an amazing save against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday night and you're in luck because we have the video.

While the 2013 NHL season is a little under two weeks old, Dallas Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen might have completed the save of the year against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday night.

At the start of the second period, Columbus defenseman Jack Johnson made a couple cut moves to the left face-off circle and ripped a wrist shot, which deflected off Lehtonen and appeared destined to enter the net.

That is until Lehtonen got kinda weird with it reaching his arm back and contorting his left side, turning his glove hand upside down to scoop the puck out of mid-air.

Unfortunately, while the save was awesome, it wasn't enough to lead the Stars to victory. They ended up losing to Columbus, 2-1.

Do you think Lehtonen's stop is a save of the year lock? Let us know in the comments section what you think of the play.
