Penguins' Letang to be evaluated for concussion
Share with others:
DENVER -- Penguins defenseman Kris Letang, who got hurt Thursday in Dallas, could well have another concussion.
He "did have some symptoms today and is going to get reevaluated back in Pittsburgh" after the road trip, which ends Saturday with a game here against the Colorado Avalanche.
Letang, 24, missed 21 games earlier this season because of a concussion he got Nov. 26. He had six goals, 12 points in 17 games in his return before he got hit Thursday night by Dallas forward Eric Nystrom.
The NHL apparently is not going to issue supplemental discipline to Nystrom.
In addition, Penguins winger Steve Sullivan did not practice and remains day to day because of an unspecified injury. He did not practice with the team at Denver University.
