The Pittsburgh Penguins had a weekend they’d rather forget after being swept by the Philadelphia Flyers in their home-and-home series, but the news is far from dire.
It wasn’t clear if Letang would be able to return this season after suffering a stroke on Jan. 29. Now it looks like he might rejoin the Penguins’ lineup in the near future, per the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review’s Josh Yohe.
If he’s healthy enough to play, the Penguins could certainly use him. Pittsburgh has struggled to gain any traction in his absence as evidenced by its 7-5-2 record.
Bennett was regarded as a potential top-six forward going into this season, but he’s been limited to 12 games. The 22-year-old suffered a setback in late February in his efforts to return from a hand/wrist surgery.
