Pittsburgh Penguins

Letang (lower-body) will be a game-time decision on Tuesday.

Letang has missed the last three games with a lower-body injury but was on the ice for today’s morning skate and will be a game-time decision in Philadelphia. Letang’s offensive numbers are strong this season, posting two goals and 23 assists (25 points) in 37 games but is a minus-15, which lowers his value in leagues that track plus-minus.

Letang is day-to-day with a lower-body injury; won't play Wednesday vs. the Blue Jackets.

Letang has had injury issues throughout his career but has appeared in the first 37 games of 2017-18 prior to missing tonight’s game. With Letang out, Matt Hunwick will draw back into the lineup and play on the top pairing with Brian Dumoulin. Olli Maatta will slide in on the top power-play unit.

Letang (upper-body) will not travel on the Penguins’ four-game Western Canada trip.

Letang has missed the last five games with an upper-body injury and will not travel to the west coast for their upcoming road-trip. The Penguins already announced that Letang was more than “day-to-day,” so monitor his status leading up to next Wednesday’s game in Philadelphia.

Letang (upper-body) will not play Saturday vs. the Flyers.

It remains to be known when Letang got hurt, but he will be held out of the lineup in Saturday’s outdoor game vs. the Flyers. Letang joins Olli Maatta and Trevor Daley, which leaves the Penguins’ blueline extremely thin. Ron Hainsey is expected to play big minutes in his Penguins debut with Letang sidelined.

Letang is week-to-week with a lower-body injury.

Letang was hurt Saturday vs. the Red Wings and will miss at least a few weeks with a lower-body injury. The Penguins moved him to IR this morning, so he has to miss at least four games, but it sounds like he will miss more time. Justin Schultz’s stock rises again with his movement to the top power play.
