Penguins Say Letang Suffered A Stroke, Will Be Re-evaluated After Six Weeks

February 7, 2014

The Pittsburgh Penguins announced Friday that defenseman Kris Letang suffered a stroke last week, and although the condition is not believed to be career-threatening, his immediate hockey future is unclear.

Having missed nearly two weeks of action while dealing with dizziness and nausea, Letang  was tested by doctors when the Penguins were in Phoenix last weekend and again upon their return to Pittsburgh.

Meanwhile, Letang has been cleared to vacation with his family while the Penguins are on their 20-day Winter Olympics Games break.  He hopes to resume skating when the team returns to action in late February, and doctors will re-evaluate his condition in six weeks.

Team officials said Friday that doctors have learned that Letang was born with a small hole in his heart which has never healed shut.  It was not clear whether that hole led to Letang’s stroke.

The Penguins host the New York Rangers on Friday night (6:30 PM pregame on 96.3 KQW) and will then be idle until February 27.
