The Penguins have removed defenseman Kris Letang from the injured-reserve list and assigned rookie defenseman Simon Despres to their farm team in Wilkes-Barre.

Letang is eligible to play against Montreal this evening at Consol Energy Center, although there has been no official word that he will be in the lineup.

Despres does not have to clear waivers to join the Baby Penguins, and seems certain to be recalled after the 23-man roster limit ceases to be in effect April 3.
