Nothing has been confirmed as to what’s ailing Letang, however, the rest of his season is now in doubt given the uncertainty of the illness’ severity. At first, Letang was speculated to have just caught flu-like symptoms, but now, considering he’s been out for the past four games without a diagnosis, it seems to be vehemently disturbing, and we can only hope it’s nothing serious.
Head coach Dan Bylsma said little regarding Letang’s situation – per Rossi:
“There will be no update on Kris Letang until we have further update on his condition.”
Due to how secretive they’re relaying information to the media on Letang’s sickness, the overall concern level for his long-term health is higher than before.
Again, as Rossi reported, Letang’s condition is not considered to be perishing, and we can only pray that he gets well soon.
Letang has not played since Jan. 27 against the Buffalo Sabres, and the team doesn’t know when, or if, he’ll be back.
In 34 games this season, Letang’s collected 18 points (10G, 8A) and skated to a minus-8 rating.
Stay tuned for more information regarding Letang’s developing situation.
