  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Undergoes finger surgery

    Letang had surgery to repair a fractured finger and will need eight weeks to recover, the team announced Wednesday.

    Letang's recovery timeline shouldn't impact his availability for the start of training camp in the fall. Despite the injury concern, the veteran blueliner played a full 82-game season this past year for the first time since 2010-11. While the Montreal native still managed to rack up 51 points in 2023-24, his productivity with the man advantage dropped significantly, as he managed just five power-play points compared to 21 the campaign before.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: May need surgery

    Letang will get a second opinion to determine whether he'll need surgery to address his undisclosed injuries, Seth Rorabaugh of Tribune-Review Sports reports.

    Although Letang was banged up down the stretch, he appeared in all 82 games for Pittsburgh during the 2023-24 season, racking up 10 goals and 51 points. Another update on the veteran blueliner's status should surface if surgery is required.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Played through injuries

    Letang told reporters he was "dealing with some stuff" during the final weeks of the season, per Andrew Destin of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

    Letang was still able to play but did have a handful of maintenance days along the way. Despite being banged up, the veteran blueliner still managed 10 points in his last 11 contests, reaching the 50-point threshold for the seventh time in his NHL career. With Erik Karlsson on the roster, Letang was a relative non-factor with the man advantage this year, earning just five power-play points, something fantasy players will have to factor into their decisions heading into 2024-25.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Plucks pair of apples

    Letang notched two assists and one shot on net during Monday's 5-2 win over the Rangers.

    Letang led all Pittsburgh skaters with 25:28 of ice time and added two helpers as the Penguins have gained at least one point in six straight games. He is now on a modest three-game point streak, producing four assists over that span. The 36-year-old defenseman is still plays first-pairing minutes and can be relied on to produce on the scoresheet, as he's up to 45 points through 74 contests this season.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Grabs assist in win

    Letang recorded a power-play assist in Thursday's 3-2 victory over the Blue Jackets.

    Letang may be mired in a 10-game goal drought, but he's found ways to contribute with four assists, including two with the man advantage, 18 shots and 17 hits over that stretch. While the veteran blueliner is over the 40-point threshold for the seventh straight year, his power-play numbers have dipped dramatically with just five compared to last season's 21.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Reaches 30-assist mark

    Letang produced an assist, five shots on goal, two hits and two PIM in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Canucks.

    Letang has picked up seven points over his last six games. The defenseman reached the 30-assist mark Tuesday with his secondary helper on Lars Eller's game-tying goal in the third period. Letang is up to 37 points, 117 shots on net, 101 hits, 91 blocked shots, 52 PIM and a plus-16 rating through 56 outings overall. He has just three power-play points, but he's been solid in just about every other area for fantasy purposes.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Two points in Sunday's win

    Letang scored the game-winning goal and added a power-play assist in Sunday's 7-6 victory over the Flyers.

    The veteran blueliner produced his second straight multi-point performance, snapping a scoring slump that had seen Letang cobble together just one goal and six points over his prior 16 contests. Sunday's helper was only his third power-play point of the season, as the addition of Erik Karlsson to the Penguins' lineup has left Letang in danger of failing to score in double digits with the man advantage for the first time since 2009-10.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Two goals in win

    Letang scored a pair of goals in Thursday's 4-1 victory over Montreal.

    Letang got Pittsburgh on the board midway through the first period, beating Cayden Primeau with a wrister through traffic to tie the game 1-1. The 36-year-old blueliner added an empty-netter in the final frame to seal the Penguins 4-1 win. It's Letang's first multi-point game since Jan. 4 -- he came into Thursday with just one goal and three points in his last 11 contests. Overall, Letang has 34 points (six goals, 28 assists) through 54 games this season.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Registers helper

    Letang notched an assist, two shots on goal and a plus-4 rating in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Blackhawks.

    Letang set up Bryan Rust for the empty-netter while the Penguins were on the penalty kill. With just two points over his last nine games, Letang has been in a bit of a quiet stretch. The 36-year-old blueliner is at 31 points (two on the power play, one shorthanded), 104 shots on net, 90 hits, 83 blocked shots and a plus-17 rating through 51 outings this season.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Playing Wednesday

    Letang (undisclosed) will be in the lineup versus the Panthers on Wednesday, Seth Rorabaugh of Tribune-Review Sports reports.

    Letang left practice for precautionary reasons Monday but appears to be no worse for wear, as the Penguins will be using their full complement of defensemen Wednesday. The veteran blueliner has hit a rough patch offensively with just one point in his last seven games but continues to feature on the top power-play unit ahead of Erik Karlsson.

  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Dealing with minor injury

    Letang left Monday's practice early because he is "nicked up a little bit" according to coach Mike Sullivan, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Letang will have some extra time to get back to 100 percent before Wednesday's matchup with the Panthers, though the Penguins are heading into a back-to-back. The veteran blueliner has managed just one point in his last seven contests despite replacing Erik Karlsson on the No. 1 power-play unit. If Letang were to miss any time, it would likely mean more minutes for John Ludvig and Pierre-Olivier Joseph.

    Letang has been producing plenty of helpers during his current goal slump with 10 assists in his last eight outings. The defenseman's slump isn't for a lack of opportunities, as he has put 21 shots on net over that stretch and is averaging 1:42 of power-play ice time despite being dropped to the No. 2 unit.
