NHL Lockout: Penguins' Kris Letang Will Consider Playing In Europe

The National Hockey League is officially in a lockout once again, meaning many of their star players will look into playing in leagues back in their native countries. 25-year-old Penguins defenseman Kris Letang is one of many considering a move back to European hockey for the upcoming year.

Here is the latest from Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

Many who are working closely with the NHL during their labor negotiations have said the season might not begin anytime soon, so it only makes sense for these players to consider playing outside of the United States. Letang is one of the better young defensemen around and is looking to build off a year when injuries limited him to 51 games. He tied a career-high with 10 goals, and recorded 42 points.
