Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang did not have an easy 2017-18 season and it only got tougher in the playoffs. He missed half of last season and his summer training because of a neck injury and surgery to repair it, by Letang’s admission this season he had “one good game, one bad game,” and often within games his play varied from shift to shift.

Letang, 31, did not use excuses. Far more than any other season, Letang faced the media and spoke with candor.

“I sacrifice everything for this team. My only goal is to spend the rest of my career here. That’s all I can say,” said Letang last week when asked about his future.

In December, PHN learned the Penguins did indeed take calls on Letang and he was available. Though it is important to denote the distinction between taking calls on a player and making calls, the Penguins did listen.
