Penguins' Kris Letang: Ditches non-contact sweater

Letang (upper body) practiced in a regular jersey Friday and hasn't been ruled out for the Pens' upcoming back-to-back, Sam Kasan of Pens Inside Scoop reports.

Coach Mike Sullivan wouldn't go so far as to confirm Letang would play against St. Louis or Philadelphia on Saturday and Sunday, respectively, but the fact that the blueliner has been cleared for contact is a step in the right direction. Once the Montreal native is given the all-clear, he figures to bump Zach Trotman from the lineup and could even find himself on the second power-play unit in favor of Justin Schultz.
