Penguins defenseman Letang out with concussion

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang is out indefinitely after sustaining a concussion against the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday.

With 4:45 remaining in the second period, Coyotes forward Shane Doan shoved Letang to the ice, causing the defenseman to fall backward. Letang’s head snapped back into the end boards when he made contact with the ice, where he sat for several minutes while being treated by team trainers.

Penguins forward Steve Downie, who later fought Doan, and defenseman Rob Scuderi, helped Letang to his skates and to the runway. He struggled to walk toward the Pittsburgh locker room before being taken to a hospital.

“Watching the hit … It was just him going back,” Penguins coach Mike Johnston said. “It was just such a distance from the boards. When he landed and his head snapped back into the boards that was the main impact of the injury. We’ll see how he feels over the next couple of days and go from there.”

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
