  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Sets up pair of goals in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/15/17) Letang provided two assists in Saturday's 4-3 win over the visiting Panthers.

    The veteran defenseman provided a secondary man-advantage helper on a Sidney Crosby goal in the first period, and then he was the primary setup man on another Crosby marker in the third. Letang has looked healthy following neck surgery (performed last April), adding four points (one goal, three assists) and averaging 26:09 of ice time through six contests.

    Penguins' Kris Letang: Pots power-play goal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/12/17) Letang scored his first goal of the season against the Capitals on Wednesday.

    Letang opened the scoring in Wednesday's 3-2 victory over Washington by getting to the front of the net and knocking home the bouncing puck. Its not the usual blue line rocket from the defenseman, but no doubt he was thrilled to get his first goal in nearly eight months after being sidelined with a neck injury at the end of the 2017-18 campaign.

    Penguins' Kris Letang: He's baaack

    (9/23/17) Letang (neck) will make an appearance in Sunday's exhibition home contest against the Blues, theScore reports.

    There should be pandemonium the moment that Letang gets spotted in front of the home crowd at PPG Paints Arena. The prolific puck-pushing defenseman hasn't seen game action since Feb. 21, but the newly minted alternate captain worked hard in the offseason in order to get clearance for training camp. Letang produced five goals, 29 assists and 14 points with the man advantage last season, but he missed out on the playoffs, which culminated in the team's second Stanley Cup victory in as many years.

    Penguins' Kris Letang: Cleared for camp

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/10/17) Letang (neck) is healthy enough to participate in the team's upcoming training camp, according general manager Jim Rutherford.

    The three-time Stanley Cup champion had an injury-plagued season in 2016-17, suiting up in just 41 games while still managing to produce 34 points. Having been sidelined since Feb. 21, don't expect the Pens to immediately throw Letang into the fire, but instead ease him back into his role as the team's No. 1 defenseman.

    Penguins' Kris Letang: Positive reports on health

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/30/17) Letang, who had neck surgery April 13, said he's getting stronger every day, NHL.com reports.

    Letang has been doing drills to improve his footwork with the assistance of Terrell Owens, who's one of the better NFL wide receivers in recent memory. As for the stud defenseman, he watched his team prevail over the Predators in the 2017 Stanley Cup Finals -- technically his third Cup win since the Pens drafted him in the third round of the 2005 draft. Letang remained in a near-elite class of fantasy defensemen by recording five goals and 29 helpers over 41 games of his abbreviated 2016-17 campaign.
