Kris Letang Cleared for Full Contact
Standard Spin: Great news for Kris Letang owners, as the Pens' defenseman has been cleared to return to full contact practice. Letang has missed 20 games with a concussion, and the Pens will likely let him get a couple of practices under his belt before putting him in the line of fire, but his return is immiment.
Letang was out to a great start early in the season, notching 19 points in 22 games, and we expect him to step right back in without missing a beat. When the official word of his return comes down, make sure you get him back in your starting rotation immediately. (Jan.17)
