This is the first time the blueliner has taken the ice after being sidelined since early November with the lower-body issue. Letang has resided on injured reserve since his injury, but this news is evidence that his return could be coming soon.

Letang has been sidelined since early November with a lower-body issue, so this move is essentially procedural.

Once cleared to play, the Montreal native will retake his spot in the top pairing alongside Brian Dumoulin, but he may have to settle for minutes with the No. 2 power-play unit.

Letang (lower body) didn't make the trip to New York and will miss both Tuesday's matchup with the Rangers and Friday's clash with the Devils, Josh Getzoff of PensTV reports.
Considering the club classified Letang as week-to-week, it shouldn't come as a shock to see him missing from the lineup for a few more games. At this point, the elite blueliner should probably be considered a long shot to play against Toronto on Saturday as well. In his stead, Justin Schultz will quarterback the top power-play unit while John Marino continues to see an uptick in ice time.
