Kris Letang To Return To Practice For Penguins

Penguins defenseman Kris Letang will practice with the Pens on Tuesday, Bob Pomepani reports:

Kris Letang returns to practice tomorrow after skating in Pittsburgh by himself the last few days...

Letang has been out since late November due to a concussion he suffered on a hit by the Montreal Canadiens' Max Pacioretty, who was suspended for three games.

The Penguins have played uneven hockey in Letang's absence, which has partially corresponded with the absences of Sidney Crosby, Jordan Staal and others. Getting Letang back soon would be a big boost to the Penguins, who are now dusting themselves off after a six-game losing streak that began December 29. The Penguins broke that streak with wins over the Florida Panthers and Tampa Bay Lightning last weekend.

Letang had eight goals, 42 assists, and a +/- of 15 in 2010-2011, during which he was also and All-Star.
