NHL to hold Letang hearing on boarding call
 
Pittsburgh Penguin defenseman Kris Letang will face a Department of Player Safety hearing on Tuesday to discuss the boarding penalty he was assessed at the 13:08 mark of the third period of Monday night's game against the Jets in Winnipeg.

The Jets won the game, 2-1, for the franchise's first win since relocating to Winnipeg before the start of the 2011-12 season.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.

— Penguins GM Jim Rutherford on forward Brandon Sutter
