Top Kris Letang News

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Sets new career high

    Letang recorded 68 points this season, a new personal best, including two goals and 20 assists with the man advantage in 78 games.

    It was the first time since 2017-18 in which Letang played in more than 70 games, in part due to the two shortened NHL seasons. Even with his contract situation in doubt, Letang should be a top-end fantasy option heading into the 2022-23 campaign regardless of whether he is playing in Pittsburgh or somewhere else for the first time in his career.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Dishes three helpers Sunday

    Letang notched three assists, one on the power play, in Sunday's 11-2 win over the Red Wings.

    He picked up a helper in every period, although he had plenty of chances given that the Penguins scored multiple goals in every period. The multi-point effort was Letang's first in over a month, but his numbers on the season remain excellent as he's racked up seven goals and 56 points through 63 games.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Registers two helpers in loss

    Letang generated two assists -- including a power-play helper -- in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Hurricanes.

    It was the 12th box-score multiplier this season for Letang, who -- with six goals and 41 assists -- already is two points past his total from the 2020-21 campaign. However, those numbers likely provide no solace to the veteran blueliner, as the Pens have lost two straight games with the latest defeat taking place against the only team ahead of them in the Metropolitan Division standings.

The veteran blueliner is having another great season but Letang has taken his game to another level since the beginning of January, racking up five goals and 25 points in 20 games.
