Letang Joins Family in Montreal After Father’s Death



Pittsburgh Penguins, Kris Letang

BOSTON — Kris Letang was not expected to play in the Pittsburgh Penguins’ Winter Classic game at Fenway Park against the Boston Bruins this afternoon because of an unspecified injury, but his absence is assured now.

Letang was with the Penguins yesterday, although he did not practice, but has returned to Montreal to be with his family after his father died.

There was no word on when he is expected to rejoin the team, whose next game will be at Vegas Thursday.

The outdoors game will be the second Kris Letang has missed because of his most recent injury. He also sat out the Penguins’ 4-2 loss to New Jersey Friday.
