Top Kris Letang News

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Reaches 30-assist mark

    Letang produced an assist, five shots on goal, two hits and two PIM in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Canucks.

    Letang has picked up seven points over his last six games. The defenseman reached the 30-assist mark Tuesday with his secondary helper on Lars Eller's game-tying goal in the third period. Letang is up to 37 points, 117 shots on net, 101 hits, 91 blocked shots, 52 PIM and a plus-16 rating through 56 outings overall. He has just three power-play points, but he's been solid in just about every other area for fantasy purposes.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Two points in Sunday's win

    Letang scored the game-winning goal and added a power-play assist in Sunday's 7-6 victory over the Flyers.

    The veteran blueliner produced his second straight multi-point performance, snapping a scoring slump that had seen Letang cobble together just one goal and six points over his prior 16 contests. Sunday's helper was only his third power-play point of the season, as the addition of Erik Karlsson to the Penguins' lineup has left Letang in danger of failing to score in double digits with the man advantage for the first time since 2009-10.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Two goals in win

    Letang scored a pair of goals in Thursday's 4-1 victory over Montreal.

    Letang got Pittsburgh on the board midway through the first period, beating Cayden Primeau with a wrister through traffic to tie the game 1-1. The 36-year-old blueliner added an empty-netter in the final frame to seal the Penguins 4-1 win. It's Letang's first multi-point game since Jan. 4 -- he came into Thursday with just one goal and three points in his last 11 contests. Overall, Letang has 34 points (six goals, 28 assists) through 54 games this season.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Registers helper

    Letang notched an assist, two shots on goal and a plus-4 rating in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Blackhawks.

    Letang set up Bryan Rust for the empty-netter while the Penguins were on the penalty kill. With just two points over his last nine games, Letang has been in a bit of a quiet stretch. The 36-year-old blueliner is at 31 points (two on the power play, one shorthanded), 104 shots on net, 90 hits, 83 blocked shots and a plus-17 rating through 51 outings this season.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Playing Wednesday

    Letang (undisclosed) will be in the lineup versus the Panthers on Wednesday, Seth Rorabaugh of Tribune-Review Sports reports.

    Letang left practice for precautionary reasons Monday but appears to be no worse for wear, as the Penguins will be using their full complement of defensemen Wednesday. The veteran blueliner has hit a rough patch offensively with just one point in his last seven games but continues to feature on the top power-play unit ahead of Erik Karlsson.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Dealing with minor injury

    Letang left Monday's practice early because he is "nicked up a little bit" according to coach Mike Sullivan, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Letang will have some extra time to get back to 100 percent before Wednesday's matchup with the Panthers, though the Penguins are heading into a back-to-back. The veteran blueliner has managed just one point in his last seven contests despite replacing Erik Karlsson on the No. 1 power-play unit. If Letang were to miss any time, it would likely mean more minutes for John Ludvig and Pierre-Olivier Joseph.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Goal drought continues

    Letang failed to score a goal for his eighth straight game against Vancouver on Thursday but did manage to record an assist.

    Letang has been producing plenty of helpers during his current goal slump with 10 assists in his last eight outings. The defenseman's slump isn't for a lack of opportunities, as he has put 21 shots on net over that stretch and is averaging 1:42 of power-play ice time despite being dropped to the No. 2 unit.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Three more helpers Thursday

    Letang recorded three assists in Thursday's 6-5 win over the Bruins.

    The veteran blueliner has been feast or famine lately -- Letang has three games of three or more points in the last 10 contests, but he was held off the scoresheet entirely in the other seven. He's been finding other ways to contribute though, racking up 13 hits, 17 blocked shots, 20 PIM, 25 shots on net and a plus-3 rating during that time. On the season, Letang's produced three goals and 26 points in 37 games, putting him on pace for his seventh career 50-point campaign if he can avoid the injury bug.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Makes history in Wednesday's rout

    Letang racked up six assists while adding one shot on net, two blocked shots, two PIM and a plus-6 rating in Wednesday's 7-0 win over the Islanders.

    The Penguins scored six times in the second frame, and Letang had a hand in five of those tallies -- becoming the first defenseman in NHL history to record five points in one period. The 36-year-old is up to three goals and 23 points through 33 games on the season, but nine of those points (one goal and eight helpers) have come in the last two contests.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Still got it on the blue line

    Letang had a goal and two assists in Saturday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Senators.

    Letang beat a heavily screened Anton Forsberg with a wrister from the right point to knot the game at 4-4 late in the third and force OT. Letang's multi-assist game was his 103rd of his career, which is the second-most among active defensemen behind only teammate Erik Karlsson (128).

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Garners assist in win

    Letang generated an assist in Thursday's 4-2 victory over the Lightning.

    Letang has scored just once in 22 games this season, but he's added 11 helpers over that stretch. With his drop from the No. 1 power-play unit, Letang's production with the man advantage has dried up - he has zero power-play points this year. That's a far cry from the 20-plus PP points he registered in each of the last two seasons. Still, Letang should still be capable of reaching the 40-point threshold for the seventh consecutive season.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Adds assist

    Letang produced an assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Tuesday's 2-0 win over the Ducks.

    Letang has a goal and two helpers over his last four games. The 36-year-old blueliner helped out on Sidney Crosby's empty-net tally in the third period. Letang is up to seven points, 20 shots on net, 16 hits, 15 blocked shots and a plus-3 rating through 11 outings. He continues to play on the top pairing at even strength, but he's mainly been on the second power-play unit and has yet to contribute a point with the man advantage.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Scores in blowout win

    Letang scored a goal, blocked three shots and went plus-2 in Saturday's 10-2 win over the Sharks.

    Sidney Crosby left a drop-pass for Letang, who tallied at 9:27 of the second period to chase Mackenzie Blackwood from the game. The goal was Letang's first of the season, and he's picked up two points over his last three outings. The defenseman is at six points, 18 shots on net, 15 hits, 13 blocked shots, eight PIM and a plus-2 rating through 10 contests. All of his offense has come at even strength.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Available Saturday

    Coach Mike Sullivan said Friday that Letang (lower body) will be available to play Saturday versus the Blues, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.

    Letang was injured Wednesday and missed practice Thursday before returning to the ice Friday. The defenseman has three assists in four games but has lost some fantasy value, as he is playing on the second power play. He lost his spot on the first unit when the Penguins dealt for Erik Karlsson in the offseason.

    Letang suffered a lower-body injury Wednesday against Detroit and was not at practice Thursday, according to Dave Molinari of Pittsburgh Hockey Now.

    Letang managed to play the whole game as he saw 24:35 of action versus the Red Wings. Letang has three assists in four games thus far, although he has lost his spot on the first power play to Erik Karlsson. Letang should be considered day-to-day at this time.
