News: Letang returned from a five-game absence Friday and scored a power-play goal -- his fifth goal of the season -- against the Flames. Impact: Letang deflected a Simon Despres in front of the Calgary net to give Pittsburgh an early 2-0 lead. Despite sitting out since Nov. 28, he led his team in ice time (27:16). The blueliner also extended his point streak to four games (2G, 4A).(RotoWire, )
Fri. Dec 12, 2014
News: Coach Mike Johnston said after Friday's morning skate that he expected Letang (groin) to play later in the evening against the Flames, Shelly Anderson of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Impact: The Penguins will still have to formally activate Letang from injured reserve before game time, but that should happen at some point in the afternoon. The blueliner was a full participant in both Thursday's practice and Friday's optional session, clearing the way for him to reenter the lineup after a five-game break.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Dec 11, 2014
News: Letang (groin) is expected to return to action Friday against the Flames, Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Impact: Letang took full contact at Thursday's practice and is being labeled as a game-time decision, but seems to be trending toward active status for Friday. His availability will ultimately hinge on the decision of the coaching and medical staff, though it seems likely that his participation in Friday's morning skate without any limitations will be enough to give him the green light to play. Letang has missed the last five games with the groin injury.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Dec 9, 2014
News: Letang (groin) went through a full practice Tuesday, Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Impact: Letang, who has been out since Nov. 28 with the injury, is targeting a return to the Penguins' lineup Friday against the Flames. He'll still need to practice Thursday without any complications before the Penguins activate him from IR, but it seems like the blueliner isn't in line for an especially long absence. He's been outstanding this season when healthy, contributing four goals and 14 assists over 22 games.(RotoWire, )

Mon. Dec 8, 2014
News: Letang (groin) participated in Monday's morning skate. Impact: There's no word yet on whether or not Letang will be in the lineup Monday against the Rangers, so consider him a game-time decision unless we hear more. The blueliner hasn't played since Nov. 28, and he racked up four goals and 14 assists in 22 games before getting hurt.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Dec 6, 2014
News: Letang (groin) took part in Saturday's morning skate. Impact: Coach Mike Johnston said Thursday that he expected Letang to miss about two weeks with the groin issue. The 27-year-old Letang has already missed a week of action, and while it sounds like he has a chance to beat Johnston's initial estimate, the team will wait and see how he feels Sunday morning before thinking about easing him back into the lineup.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Dec 4, 2014
News: Pens coach Mike Johnston said Thursday that he expects Letang (groin) to miss about two weeks. Impact: Letang was injured Nov. 29 against the Hurricanes, putting a possible return sometime around Dec. 15, when the Pens host Tampa Bay. "They expect it (groin injury) to settle down over the first seven-to-10 days, and then it will be wait-and-see after that," coach Johnston said. "In my mind I'm looking at probably about two weeks." A combination of Olli Maatta, Christian Ehrhoff and perhaps Paul Martin is expected to help offset Pittsburgh's loss of Letang on the top power-play unit.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Dec 2, 2014
News: Letang's lower-body injury has been identified as a groin issue, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Impact: Letang was placed on IR prior to Tuesday's game, but the team still hasn't elaborated on the extent of the injury other than labeling it "minor" last week. He won't be eligible to return from IR until Saturday at the earliest.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Dec 2, 2014
News: Letang (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Impact: The move doesn't suggest a setback in Letang's timetable; it's strictly a procedural move for the Penguins to call up winger Scott Wilson, who will take the blueliner's place on the active roster. Letang will miss his second and third straight games Tuesday and Thursday, respectively, but would be eligible to return Saturday versus the Senators if healthy.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Nov 29, 2014
News: Letang remains out because of a lower-body injury. Impact: Letang last played Nov. 28. Letang has four goals and 14 assists in 22 games for the Metropolitan Division-leading Penguins. (STATS, 11:07pm)
