Top Kris Letang News

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Dazzles in emotional return

    Letang scored two goals, including the overtime winner, and added two assists in Tuesday's 7-6 victory over the Panthers.

    One of the helpers and the OT winner came on the power play, as Letang saw his first game action since Dec. 28. It's been a traumatic season so far for the veteran blueliner, both on and off the ice, but Tuesday's performance was a reminder that the 35-year-old is still highly skilled and surrounded by Hall of Fame talent. Letang has four goals and 20 points through 30 games, but if he can stay in the lineup, he could be poised for a big second half.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Officially labeled game-time call

    Letang (lower body) is considered a game-time decision for Tuesday's matchup with Florida.

    Letang looks set to return to the lineup after practicing with the No. 1 power-play unit, but coach Mike Sullivan wouldn't go so far as to clear him to play against the Panthers. The veteran blueliner has missed the last 11 contests due to his lower-body issue, having last played Dec. 28 versus Detroit. Prior to getting hurt, Letang generated four points in his previous six contests and should offer a decent fantasy upside.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Still not a full participant

    Letang (lower body) wasn't a full participant in Saturday's practice and won't make the trip to New Jersey for Sunday's game versus the Devils, Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com reports.

    Letang wore a regular jersey during Saturday's morning skate, but that was only for the purpose of him participating in power-play drills, and the veteran blueliner still isn't sure when he'll be ready to return to game action.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Shifts to LTIR

    Letang (lower body) was placed on long-term injured reserve retroactive to Dec. 28 on Friday.

    Although he won't play Friday versus Ottawa, because Letang's placement on LTIR was made retroactive to Dec. 28, he'll be eligible to rejoin the lineup whenever he's deemed fit to return. The 35-year-old defender has collected two goals and 16 points through 29 contests this season.

    Letang (lower body) won't play Friday versus Ottawa, Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com reports.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Not playing Wednesday

    Letang (lower body) won't play Wednesday against Ottawa, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.

    Letang was back with the Penguins for Tuesday's practice following a personal leave of absence. He is listed on injured reserve and is considered to be day-to-day. Letang will get some additional time on the ice to work his way back into game shape before he returns to game action.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Rejoins team in non-contact jersey

    Letang (lower body) was back with the Penguins at Tuesday's practice session sporting a non-contact jersey, Pens Inside Scoop reports. Additionally, Letang is officially listed on injured reserve, per the NHL media site.

    Letang, who was previously away from the team for personal reasons, appears to still be hampered by his lower-body issue. At this point, it seems unlikely the veteran defenseman will be ready to suit up for Wednesday's matchup with Ottawa, though he hasn't been officially ruled out. In his stead, Ty Smith continues to see heavy minutes on the Pens' blue line.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Should meet with Penguins soon

    Letang (personal/lower body) is expected to meet back up with the Penguins in the next day or so, coach Mike Sullivan told Wes Crosby of NHL.com on Monday.

    Letang suffered a lower-body injury Dec. 28 and was designated as a non-roster player Jan. 3 after the passing of his father. The status of his injury isn't clear, so Letang might not return to the lineup immediately after rejoining the Penguins. He has two goals and 16 points in 29 contests this season.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Not back with Penguins

    Letang (personal/lower body) hasn't rejoined the Penguins and won't play Tuesday versus Vancouver, per Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Remains with family

    Letang (personal/lower body) is still home in Montreal, and he isn't expected to play in Arizona on Sunday, Penguins' reporter Michelle Crechiolo reports.

    Letang has not been in the Pittsburgh lineup since Dec. 28 as he suffered a lower-body injury and then returned to his hometown upon the passing of his father. He could return Tuesday when the Penguins return home to face Vancouver. Letang has two goals and 16 points in 29 games this season.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Still not with team

    Letang (personal/lower body) remains in his native Montreal ahead of the Penguins' matchup in Vegas on Thursday, Pens Inside Scoop reports.

    At this point, it seems unlikely, though not impossible, that Letang will meet up with the team during their two-game road trip. As such, the blueliner probably shouldn't be expected back into the lineup before the Pens' Jan. 10 clash with Vancouver, though that will also depend on the status of his lower-body injury.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Designated as non-roster player

    Letang (lower body) has been designated as a non-roster player while he is away from the Penguins, the team announced Tuesday.

    Letang was already dealing with a lower-body injury but left the team following the passing of his father. For now, the veteran blueliner should be considered out indefinitely with Pierre-Olivier Joseph likely to see the biggest uptick in ice time. Once cleared to play, Letang will retake his place on the No. 1 power-play unit.

    Per head coach Mike Sullivan, Letang (lower body) is considered day-to-day.

    Letang's status for Monday's Winter Classic matchup with Boston is still unclear but it seems like he won't miss extended time. If he can't suit up, Ty Smith will stay in the Penguins' lineup.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Will not play Friday

    Letang (lower body) will not play Friday against New Jersey according to coach Mike Sullivan, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Suffers lower-body injury

    Letang sustained a lower-body injury Wednesday and is still being evaluated, Rob Rossi of The Athletic reports Thursday.

    Letang has underwhelmed offensively since returning from his stroke with just four points in his last eight contests, with three of those helpers coming with the man advantage. Still, Letang remains the Penguins' No. 1 blueliner and his potential absence would be even more impactful with Jeff Petry (upper body) still sidelined. Coach Mike Sullivan didn't offer a specific update in regard to timeline, so fantasy players will have to take a wait-and-see approach ahead of Friday's clash with the Devils.

    Letang scored a short-handed goal and added an assist in Thursday's 4-2 win over Florida.

    Letang tied the game 1-1 in the second period with a short-handed goal, his first since returning from a five-game absence following a stroke. The 35-year-old blueliner would add an assist on Jake Guentzel's power-play goal later in the second. Letang now has two goals and 12 assists in 24 games this season while adding 57 hits and 41 blocked shots.
