  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Taking baby steps

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/19/17) Letang (upper body) is skating on his own but hasn't practiced with the team, DK Pittsburgh Sports reports.

    There's still no word as to specifically when Letang might return to the lineup. He's almost assuredly out Tuesday in Buffalo and likely Thursday in Ottawa. Historically, he usually only needs one or two practices before coming back. At best, it seems as though Letang might play two games (Friday and Sunday) in the coming week, but even that is by no means a sure thing. Stay tuned.

    Penguins' Kris Letang: Progress noted Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/15/17) Letang (upper body) will miss his 10th straight game Wednesday but is improving. "I don't want to sit here and give you a number of days it will be because I'm not sure yet," GM Jim Rutherford told DK Pittsburgh Sports. "But he's coming along, I can tell you that much."

    Coach Mike Sullivan recently ruled out speculation that Letang was beset by yet another stroke or concussion, but he offered little other information. Fortunately, Rutherford relayed positive news Tuesday. "I can tell you this: Kris is progressing really well," Rutherford said. "He's absolutely starting to feel better and starting to move in the right direction."

    Penguins' Kris Letang: Avoids potentially serious injury

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/9/17) Penguins coach Mike Sullivan clarified that Letang is not dealing with a concussion or anything related to his previous stroke.

    Sullivan ambiguously referred to Letang's ailment as a "hockey injury," but we can safely deduce that the playmaking blueliner isn't dealing with a serious issue. That's music to the ears of the Penguins and fantasy owners alike, as Tanger has amassed 34 points (five goals, 29 assists) -- including two goals and 12 assists on the man advantage -- over 41 games. Pittsburgh can afford to go the safe route with a playoff berth in the bag.

    April 5, 2015: Pens' Letang May Exercise Soon
    Letang (concussion) may start riding an exercise bike this week, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.Letang hasn't skated or exercised since suffering a concussion last Saturday, so he can probably be ruled out for the rest of the regular season. The Penguins hope to have their puck-moving blueliner back for the start of the playoffs, but given Letang's history of head injuries and the serious nature of this recent one, it's possible he won't be ready.
