You heard me: Defenseman Kris Letang will be returning to the Penguin’s lineup tonight after suffering a concussion in late November.
Though his recovery hasn’t been as publicized as certain other members of the squad, his presence is absolutely invaluable.
Letang only returned to practice this Tuesday, but we are assured he is 100% ready to go. Bylsma said he plans to use him in a “top-four” role, as well as on the power play.
The New York Rangers are currently the team to beat in the East, and the addition of Letang to our roster will only serve as both a mental and performance boost for our team!
