Penguins' Kris Letang: Dishes pair of helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Letang notched two assists, four shots on goal and three hits in Thursday's 8-4 win over the Sabres.

Letang set up tallies by Brian Dumoulin and Sidney Crosby in Thursday's contest. In his last 10 games, Letang has racked up 10 assists, three of which came with the man advantage. The high-scoring blueliner has 45 points (seven goals, 38 helpers) in 54 contests this season, surpassing his 44-point output from 61 games a year ago.

Penguins' Kris Letang: Collects power-play assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Letang notched a power-play assist and four shots on goal in Tuesday's 7-3 win over the Flyers.

Letang set up a Jake Guentzel tally in the second period. The 34-year-old Letang has produced 11 assists in 14 games since he last scored a goal. For the season, the veteran blueliner has a sturdy 43 points, 126 shots on net, 88 hits, 62 blocked shots and a plus-17 rating in 53 contests. He needs just one more point to match last year's output from 61 appearances.

Penguins' Kris Letang: Getting it done on both ends
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Letang dished out two assists -- one shorthanded -- to go with a plus-3 rating in Thursday's 5-1 win over New Jersey.

Letang has just one goal in his last 14 games, but he's been far from ineffective offensively in that stretch, notching six multi-point performances. The veteran defenseman has also been quietly effective in his own end this season, as Letang's plus-16 rating is tied for the second-best mark of his career, trailing only his plus-21 finish in 2011-12.

Penguins' Kris Letang: Loses assist after scoring change
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Letang no longer has credit for an assist in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Devils due to a scoring change.

Letang initially had an assist on the Penguins' third goal. Instead, his three-game multi-point streak comes to a close with a scoreless outing. The 33-year-old blueliner is at 34 points, 95 shots on net, 70 hits and 51 blocked shots with a plus-13 rating in 41 appearances.

Penguins' Kris Letang: Modest point streak over
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Letang fired two shots on goal but did not record a point in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Devils.

Letang's point streak ended at three games, but he has a goal and five helpers in his last four outings. The 33-year-old blueliner is up to seven tallies, 27 assists, 95 shots on net, a plus-13 rating, 70 hits and 51 blocked shots through 41 outings this season.

Penguins' Kris Letang: Two more helpers in Friday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Letang notched two assists with three hits, two shots on net, one blocked shot and a minus-1 rating in Friday's 6-4 win over the Devils.

That's now three straight multi-point performances for Letang and five in the last eight games. The veteran blueliner is having another big campaign, piling up seven goals and 34 points through 40 contests.

Penguins' Kris Letang: Another multi-point night at MSG
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Letang had a goal and an assist in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Rangers.

Letang factored into each of the Penguins' first two goals, setting up Radim Zohorna in the first period and lighting the lamp himself in the second. The star defenseman's second consecutive multi-point performance gave Letang 10 points in his last eight games and 32 points in 39 games this season.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penguins' Kris Letang: Collects pair of points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Letang had two assists and three shots Saturday in a 6-3 win over the Islanders. He also had a plus-3 rating and a pair of assists.

Letang has picked up five points (one goal, four assists) over his last three outings, including helpers Saturday on goals by Sidney Crosby (PP) and Bryan Rust. The 30-year-old Letang is up to six goals and 21 assists in 34 games, leaving him on the verge of a seventh straight campaign of 30-plus points.

Penguins' Kris Letang: Tickles twine in first period
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Letang scored a goal on three shots and had two PIM in a 5-2 win over Buffalo on Wednesday.

Letang pounced on an errant puck in front of the net and roofed it, giving the Penguins a 2-0 lead with 4:16 left in the opening period. The goal was Letang's first since March 4, snapping a 10-game scoring drought. The 33-year-old is enjoying yet another strong offensive season, leading Pittsburgh defensemen in points (23), goals (six) and assists (17) while logging a plus-11 rating.

Penguins' Kris Letang: Five assists in last four games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Letang had two assists in a 3-2 loss to the Devils on Thursday.

Letang has five assists in his last four games and 22 points in 29 games on the season. That's good enough for a three-way tie with Shea Theodore and Darnell Nurse for 10th in scoring from the blue line. Letang is on fire right now, so make him an automatic activation -- you don't want to miss out because of a missed roster deadline.

Penguins' Kris Letang: Point-per-game pace in last 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Letang set up two goals Saturday in a 3-0 win over the Sabres.

The bottom line is simple: As Letang goes, the Pens tend to do the same. After a very quiet start, he's scored at a point-per-game pace over his last 12 games (five goals, seven assists). And the team is among the hottest in the NHL right now. Letang delivered a long cross-ice pass to Evgeni Malkin, who fed Jake Guentzel in the crease for the first goal on a second period power play. And his puck pressure deep along the wall popped the puck out to Sidney Crosby, who made no mistake from 200 feet into the open net in the game's last minute.

Penguins' Kris Letang: Collects helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Letang posted an assist, two shots on goal, a pair of hits and two blocked shots in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Rangers.

Letang helped out on a Sidney Crosby goal in the first period. The 33-year-old Letang has five goals and five helpers in his last nine outings. He's up to 17 points, 51 shots, 41 hits and 28 blocked shots with a plus-5 rating in 23 contests. He'll likely continue to pile up points while operating on the top pairing and first power-play unit.

Penguins' Kris Letang: Four-game, seven-point streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Letang scored twice, including the game-winner, and added an assist in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Islanders.

He used Jean-Gabriel Pageau as a screen and ramped his shot off the Islander's stick blade and past Semyon Varlamov's blocker side to net the winner. Letang is on a four-game, seven-point streak (four goals, three assists) and ironically, all four of his goals this season have come against the Isles. His 14 points in 18 games would scale up to more than 60 points in a normal season. Letang is a strong fantasy activation.

Penguins' Kris Letang: Back in lineup during rematch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Letang (undisclosed) registered an assist with three hits, two blocks and two PIM in Thursday's 5-2 loss to Washington.

Letang left Tuesday's tilt with the Capitals with his injury but was right back in the lineup for the rematch, logging a team-leading 23:50 of ice time. He assisted on Jake Guentzel's game-tying goal in the third period, giving him 11 points (two goals, nine assists) after 17 games. Letang is well off of last year's scoring pace that netted him 15 goals and 29 helpers in 61 contests.

Penguins' Kris Letang: Good to go against Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Letang (undisclosed) is expected to play Thursday against the Capitals, Dan Kingerski of Pittsburgh Hockey Now reports.

Letang exited Tuesday's matchup with Washington in the third period with an undisclosed issue, but it appears as though his departure may have been precautionary. The 33-year-old Letang will slot into his usual spots on the Penguins' top pairing and first power-play unit Thursday.

Penguins' Kris Letang: Injured in third period
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Letang (undisclosed) didn't finish Tuesday's game versus the Capitals due to injury, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Letang didn't play down the stretch in a tied game, which would have been odd had he not been injured. The severity of Letang's injury isn't known at this time, but there should be an update on his status prior to Thursday's rematch with the Capitals.

Penguins' Kris Letang: Finally lands in goal ledger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Letang scored his first two goals of the season and dished out five hits in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Islanders.

Letang entered the night without a goal in his first 14 games of the season, but he managed to find the net on both of his shots Saturday. He opened the scoring with a power-play goal 12:35 into the first period, ripping a one-timer past Semyon Varlamov from above the left faceoff circle to break the dry spell. Then he broke a 2-2 tie in the third period, using a subtle toe drag to set up a screen before going top shelf on Varlamov for the game-winner. Letang scored 31 goals over the previous two seasons combined, so it was just a matter of time before the proverbial dam broke. He now has nine points in 15 games on the year.

Penguins' Kris Letang: Productive start to February
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Letang had two assists with four PIM in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Capitals. He also provided three hits, two shots and two blocks.

It was a nice all-around fantasy performance for Letang, who also logged a team-leading 23:43 of ice time. He drew the secondary assist on goals by Bryan Rust (PP) and Zach Aston-Reese, giving him points in three straight games (four assists) to start the month of February. Letang is still searching for his first goal of 2020-21 after enjoying a 15-goal campaign a year ago.

Penguins' Kris Letang: Collects point in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Letang (lower body) had an assist and was plus-2 in a 4-3 loss to the Islanders on Saturday.

After missing one game with his injury, Letang was right back in the lineup logging a team-high 23:41 of ice time. He also set up defense partner Pierre-Olivier Joseph's first career goal. Letang has been quiet offensively to start the season with just four helpers through nine games. He had 15 goals and 44 points in 61 contests a year ago, so the points should start coming soon.
