Letestu (illness) took part in Monday's training camp session, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnetreports. Based on his linemates, Letestu is likely going to be watching from the press box during the postseason. However, his ability to play center could see him slot in if an injury pops up. Without a clear spot in the lineup, there is no reason for fantasy players to utilize him in playoff pools.
Letestu (illness) returned from his conditioning assignment with AHL Manitoba on Monday. Letestu has been out since October after being diagnosed with Myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart. Depending on when the NHL season resumes, the 35-year-old forward may be ready to join the team for its next contest. He was held without a point in his first seven games this season.
Letestu (illness) was activated off injured reserve and sent down to AHL Manitoba on a conditioning assignment Monday. While this is certainly a step in the right direction, Letestu should still be considered out indefinitely. Even after a few games in the minors, the Alberta native is far from a lock for the lineup with the Jets, though Nick Shore figures to be the most likely candidate relegated to the press box.
Letestu (illness) participated in a 30-minute skate Monday, Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV reports. Head coach Paul Marice said that was "all he can handle" at this point. Letestu made his first appearance on the ice since being diagnosed with Myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart, in October. Maurice called this "Day one", and it will likely be a gradual process to get Letestu back into game shape. He was initially handed a six-month timeline to return, which would take him until late-April, early-May at this rate.
Letestu has been diagnosed with Myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart, and will be out for six months, Rick Ralph of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports. At this point, the earliest Letestu might be eligible to return would be May, so the Jets would need to go on a deep run in order to give him time to return to action. The veteran center was brought in to be a stabilizing force on the fourth line and to serve as a penalty killer. Instead, Winnipeg will need to plug holes with AHL players, unless it wants to make a move ahead of the trade deadline.
