Penguins defenceman Kris Letang out indefinitely with lower-body injury

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Pittsburgh Penguins defenceman Kris Letang is out indefinitely with what coach Dan Bylsma described as a lower-body injury.

Letang did not skate Saturday with the rest of the team in West Point, N.Y., where the Penguins are spending the weekend in the run-up to the season opener against New Jersey. Bylsma said Letang will be re-evaluated when the Penguins return to Pittsburgh on Monday. There is no timetable for his return.

The Penguins signed Letang to an eight-year contract extension in the off-season. The 25-year-old was a Norris Trophy finalist last season. He had five goals and 33 assists as Pittsburgh put together the best record in the Eastern Conference.

Quote of the Day

When somebody goes out and is there to score goals, but is also there to make some big hits, fight, do all of those things, and he has a great mustache, it was great to see him get that hit and get everybody going.
