    Penguins' Kris Letang: Leaves mark on win over Ottawa

    Kris Letang recorded two assists, five shots and a plus-4 rating during Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Senators.After marking the scoresheet in five of 17 games since returning from a lower-body injury Jan. 2, this was a welcomed breakout showing from the veteran defenseman. Letang now has a respectable 33 points, 158 shots and 48 PIM through 55 games, and Tuesday's strong game improved him to a close-to-manageable minus-11 for the campaign. A strong finish to the season is within reach.

    Penguins' Kris Letang: Struggling to score

    Kris Letang has zero points in his last five games, and he has only four points in his last 17 contests.Letang made an All-Star team, but that was by reputation more than performance. The Canadian has only three goals and 28 points in 48 games, and most of that came early in the year. Fantasy owners will have to hope he regains his form after the All-Star break ends.

    Penguins' Kris Letang: Posts two points versus Bruins

    Kris Letang recorded a goal and an assist in a 6-5 overtime victory over the Bruins on Sunday.Coming into Sunday, there probably wasn't a preseason top fantasy defensemen in need of a goal more than Letang. He hadn't scored since Dec. 7, going his last 10 games with just two assists. Letang appears to be finally finding his game, though, and could be on his way to the third 50-point campaign in the last four seasons.

    Penguins' Kris Letang: Set to return Tuesday

    Kris Letang (lower body) will suit up against the Flyers on Tuesday, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.Letang's reintroduction to the lineup comes after a three-game stint on the sidelines. The oft-injured defenseman technically still needs to be activated off injured reserve, but the team made the necessary roster moves Monday in order to clear space under the 23-man limit. Based on the game-day skate, the veteran will resume his spot on the power play -- a role in which he has tallied 14 of his 25 points.

    Penguins' Kris Letang: Traveling with team

    Kris Letang (lower body) is with the Pittsburgh Penguins in Carolina, despite initial reports he would not make the trip, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.Letang -- who has already been ruled out against the Hurricanes on Friday -- was slated for a mid-week return, according to general manager Jim Rutherford, which could have him available in time for the last contest of the club's three-game road trip. A fierce competitor, the blueliner is no doubt motivated to get back into the lineup in time for the clash with the rival Flyers on Tuesday.

    Penguins' Kris Letang: Aiming to return by middle of next week

    Kris Letang (lower body) could make his return by the middle of next week, according to Pittsburgh Penguins GM Jim Rutherford, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.While Letang was placed on injured reserve Thursday, he'll be eligible to return as soon as Sunday's road clash with Detroit, but then again, a Jan. 4 return against the visiting Hurricanes seems like the most realistic estimate for Letang based on Rutherford's latest comments. A perennial power-play contributor, Letang has already mirrored his man-advantage totals (two goals, 12 assists) from last season in four fewer games, but the heady veteran has struggled to find the back of the net, as two goals represent his total on 111 shots. Nonetheless, you're likely going to want to plug him back in once he's ready to go.

    Penguins' Kris Letang: Unavailable against Carolina

    Kris Letang (lower body) will miss Friday's matchup with the Hurricanes.Letang will stay back in Pittsburgh when the team departs for Carolina, but could rejoin the team at some point during the three-game trip, per Sam Werner of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The Pittsburgh Penguins are suddenly very thin on the blue line with Justin Schultz (lower body) already on IR and Chad Ruhwedel (upper body) picking up an injury Wednesday. Despite a seven-game goal drought, Letang is a lock to return to the top power-play unit once given the all-clear.

    Penguins' Kris Letang: Out with lower-body injury

    Kris Letang has been ruled out for Wednesday's clash with the Blue Jackets with a lower-body ailment.Letang logged just 23:44 of ice time against the Ducks on Saturday -- well below his 25:46 season average -- so it's possible he picked up a slight injury during that game. Coach Mike Sullivan deemed Letang as day-to-day, which bodes well for his availability during the Pittsburgh Penguins' upcoming three-game road trip that kicks off Friday versus Carolina.

    Penguins' Kris Letang: Leads way against Blue Jackets

    Kris Letang turned in a strong showing Thursday against Columbus, collecting an assist on the power play, firing five shots on goal, and netting the shootout winner in 29:42 of ice time.Letang also picked up four PIM in the chippy affair between the rivals. The top-pairing blueliner had been held off the scoresheet in three straight games, but he got back on track with a dominant night against Columbus. His minus-13 rating is disappointing, but it's hard to complain about his 25 points and power-play production. Letang's monstrous ice time and offensive skill make him a viable fantasy option in virtually any setting.
