Penguins general manager Ray Shero said today that defenseman Kris Letang not only will join the team Tuesday for a game-day skate but also is medically cleared for contact and games after recovering from a concussion.
Letang will not play Tuesday night when the Penguins face Carolina at Consol Energy Center, but it could be soon.
Letang has been out since he got leveled by Montreal’s Max Pacioretty in a Nov. 26 game. Letang, who also got a broken nose, returned to score the winning goal in overtime that night before his concussion was diagnosed.
