Pittsburgh, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang sustained a concussion during Saturday's game against the Arizona Coyotes, coach Mike Johnston said Sunday.
Late in the second period, Coyotes forward Shane Doan shoved Letang, who went into the air and crashed into the boards. After staying on the ice for a couple of minutes, Letang was helped off the ice and taken to a hospital.
"He has a concussion, so that's been determined. He's been released from the hospital," said Johnston. "We'll see how he feels over the next few days and go from there."
The 27-year-old Letang has 11 goals and 43 assists in 69 games this season.
