Penguins optimistic that defenseman Letang will return to the ice again
Penguins teammates said they believe defenseman Kris Letang will play again after suffering a stroke in January.
Whether Letang's return comes this season remains unknown.
“It sounds like everything is going to be all right,” defenseman Matt Niskanen said Wednesday. “There is some gray area as far as this season goes.”
Niskanen, like other teammates, emphasized that Letang's health is more important than when he returns to the lineup. Letang will be re-evaluated in four weeks.
“That's the important thing,” Niskanen said. “It's scary. He's the same age (26) as me. We just want him to be OK, and it looks like he will be.”
