The Pittsburgh Penguins announced today that they have taken defenseman Kris Letang off of injured reserve, but he is still a game-time decision for tonight.
Letang skated this morning on the fourth line with defenseman Robert Bortuzzo, and although it is a possibility, it is still unclear as to whether or not the Norris candidate will end up dressing for tonight’s game.
Letang, who has missed the last three games with a lower-body injury, is still leading all NHL defenseman in points with 28 (3G, 25A) in 27 contests.
Earlier today Pittsburgh re-assigned defenseman Simon Despres to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton to make room for Letang.
Pens got the Canadiens tonight in Pittsburgh at 7 p.m.
