“I was on the ice today because I want to return,” Letang said. “I’ll be able to play again. I don’t know when.”

Head coach Dan Bylsma reiterated Letang’s status as being undetermined.

“It’s not like Paul Martin, who has an injury, a surgery and a date where he’s working back to get in the game. There’s no date to be determined for Kris,” Bylsma said. “Right now he’s back in a full practice. That’s a good thing.”

Despite the severity of his situation, Letang has no apprehension about returning to the ice.

“Even the day I had the stroke I asked the doctor when I would be able to play again,” Letang said. “It never crossed my mind that I could have a stroke at 26. It could (happen again) because it happened once. Who knows? I’m not going to worry about that.”
