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.
The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
