Penguins defenseman Letang healthy, ready to go

Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang joined NHL Live to discuss how he's feeling after recovering from a stroke sustained last season and to provide his thoughts on the Penguins under first-year coach Mike Johnston.

Letang, 27, missed 26 regular-season games after having the stroke. He returned for the final three games and played 13 games in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

"The summer went really well," Letang said. "It was a summer for me when I had to push harder to see if my body was ready to enter a new season, making sure my body was going to react well to the level that we play at. We did all the tests possible. In the gym I kind of pushed myself and I think it went really well."

Kings receive logo-shaped championship rings

To the victors go the spoils, as well as some pretty impressive jewelry.

Los Angeles Kings players on Monday received their jewel-encrusted championship rings, made by famed jeweler Tiffany and Co. The face of the ring features the Kings logo comprised of 136 round diamonds among pave-set black spinels. STANLEY CUP is engraved above the logo, CHAMPIONS below it. Each player's name and number is on one side of the ring, while the other side features the Stanley Cup and 16:10, he Kings' record in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Inside the ring is the score of ever Kings playoff game from last season.

It's the second time in three seasons the Kings have taken home the Stanley Cup. Their run started with them becoming the fourth team in League history to rally from a 3-0 series deficit when they won four straight to eliminate the San Jose Sharks. In the second round they survived elimination against their Southern California neighbor Anaheim Ducks by winning a one-goal game in Game 6 at home and then winning Game 7 in Anaheim. In a memorable Western Conference Final against the Chicago Blackhawks, the Kings again won the last two games, including Game 7 in overtime. Then in the Final they beat the New York Rangers in five games.

Blue Jackets center Dubinsky out indefinitely

Columbus Blue Jackets center Brandon Dubinsky was placed on injured reserve Tuesday and is out indefinitely because of a lower-body injury.

Dubinsky was third on the Blue Jackets last season with 50 points, and his 34 assists were a career-best. Dubinsky also was tied for second on the team in scoring during the Stanley Cup Playoffs with six points in six games.

The injury to Dubinsky means the Blue Jackets will be missing three of their top forwards for the season opener Thursday against the Buffalo Sabres. Also missing from the lineup will be Boone Jenner (hand) and Nathan Horton (back). In addition, top-line center Ryan Johansen, who signed a three-year contract Monday, is questionable for Thursday; Johansen has to take his physical and clear immigration, and Richards said he wants to assess Johansen's conditioning before committing to playing him.
