Penguins put Letang back on IR

Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang is back on injured reserve with a lower-body injury.

Letang reportedly sustained a broken toe during Tuesday's 1-0 win over the Montreal Canadiens, which was his first game back after missing three games with a lower-body ailment.

The 25-year-old has three goals and 25 assists in 28 games this season.

In addition, the Penguins recalled defenseman Simon Despres from Wilkes- Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League. He has two goals and five assists in 24 games with Pittsburgh this season.

The Penguins, who have won 13 straight games, face the Jets on Thursday.
