Kris Letang not travelling with Penguins with game road trip; condition uncertain
Kris Letang’s injury status is still uncertain. Jason Mackey at Post Gazette posted a Penguins team update with a section on Kris. Below is the summary, you can read the complete article at the source link.
I’m hoping that Kris’ injury is not serious and wish him towards a good recovery. We sure miss him on the ice but hope he is well.
Letang won’t accompany the Penguins on their upcoming five-game road trip that winds through four Canadian cities and ends next Wednesday in Philadelphia, while coach Mike Sullivan declined Tuesday to tamp down growing speculation that this could be related to a concussion or heart problems, issues Letang has dealt with in the past.
“Our medical staff has a good handle on it,” Sullivan said after practice at the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex in Cranberry. “When he’s ready to play or he’s getting close, and we get him on the ice, we’ll let you guys know. I really don’t want to go down the road of talking details of his injury. We’re hopeful here that he’s making progress.”
But on March 1, Sullivan said Letang did not skate. There has been no indication that he’s skated since, although Letang has been spotted several times — with no noticeable issues — in and around the Penguins dressing room.
