  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Posts two points versus Bruins

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/7/18) 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

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/2/18) 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

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/29/17) Letang (lower body) is with the 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

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/29/17) Letang (lower body) could make his return by the middle of next week, according to 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: Placed on IR

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/28/17) Letang (lower body) was placed on the injured reserve Thursday.

    Letang missed Wednesday's game against the Blue Jackets with the ailment and will now miss several more. The 30-year-old defenseman has been riddled with injuries for most of his career, so it's something fantasy owners should always calculate for. For now, there's no set timetable for Letang's return.
