  • Penguins' Kris Letang: No possible playoff return

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/6/17) Letang was rumored to have a slim chance to make a return for part of the Stanley Cup Finals, but head coach Mike Sullivan put an end to that speculation Tuesday, stating, "There is zero chance that Kris Letang will come back for this series."

    These rumors seemed far-fetched anyway, but Sullivan stomped on the fire early to avoid any distractions heading into Game 5. The star defenseman is still on pace to be ready for the 2017-18 season, and his value will once again be reliant on whether he can stay healthy.

    Penguins' Kris Letang: Expects to be cleared soon

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/30/17) Letang (neck) has started skating and expects to be cleared for "everything" in a few weeks, Sam Kasan of Pens Inside Scoop reports.

    Letang seems to be on track to return to action for the 2017-18 campaign. While the blueliner's progress is encouraging, injuries have plagued him throughout his career, so he'll present a high-risk, high-upside fantasy selection entering next season.

    Penguins' Kris Letang: Surgery successful

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/13/17) Letang's (neck) has undergone successful surgery to repair a herniated disc.

    Training camp will likely kick off near the tail end of Letang's estimated 4-to-6-month recovery time. If the defenseman can keep his legs under him during the offseason, it certainly looks as though he could be available to start the 2017-18 campaign. The 29-year-old has been hard hit by injuries throughout his career, as he's played in a full 82-game season just once. If he can get back to 100 percent, Letang will no doubt resume his role as the Penguins' top blueliner in all situations.

    Penguins' Kris Letang: Will undergo neck surgery

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/5/17) Letang will have surgery to repair a herniated disc in his neck, and his expected recovery time is 4-to-6 months.

    Given the wide range of when he might be back, Letang's status for Opening Night of the 2017-18 season is certainly in question. The oft-injured defenseman will no doubt be missed on the Pens' blue line during the playoffs as they look to defend last season's Stanley Cup. The 29-year-old's injury woes make him a risky fantasy option, but when healthy, he remains one of the top offensive-minded defensemen in the league.

    Penguins' Kris Letang: Making progress

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/30/17) Letang (upper body) skated Thursday morning, and coach Mike Sullivan said he is making progress, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    With regard to Letang and fellow key cog Evgeni Malkin, Sullivan acknowledged that the team's focus is making sure it is as healthy as possible for the playoffs. The Penguins are thus not inclined to rush either player back, with Letang's return to the lineup not looking imminent as a result.
