Kris Letang had a goal and an assist Tuesday night to lift Val-d’Or past Cape Breton, 4-2, in Game 7 of the QMJHL Semifinals.
The Foreurs will take on Lewiston for the league championship. That series begins Friday night in Lewiston.
The Penguins prospect is second overall in postseason scoring with 28 points (11+17) through 15 games. He has 38 penalty minutes as well.
Val-d’Or teammate Brad Marchand is atop the scoring list with 35 points (16+19) in 16 games.
However, Letang leads all defensemen in points by a wide margin. Cape Breton’s Jean-Claude Sawyer is second with 19 points (3+16) in 16 games.
Letang had two goals in seven games with the Penguins this year before the 19-year-old was returned to Val-d’Or.
