PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said Thursday that defenseman Kris Letang is suffering symptoms from a hit delivered by Dallas forward Eric Nystrom.
“Kris Letang did have some symptoms today and is going to get reevaluated back in Pittsburgh when we get back after this road trip,” Bylsma said, according to the team’s official website.READ MORE: Three People Killed In Small Plane Crash In Fayetteville, W. Va.
Not five minutes into the first period Wednesday night, Letang came around the back of the net to play a loose puck. He reached for the puck and Nystrom appeared to make contact with Letang’s chin, sending him to the ice and out of the game.READ MORE: Police Evacuate Part Of New Castle Neighborhood After Resident Discovers Grenade While Magnetic Fishing In Shenango River
The NHL has since announced Nystrom will not have a hearing regarding the hit, which means no suspension will be issued. He could still be issued a fine.
Letang suffered a concussion earlier in the year when he was blindsided by Montreal’s Max Pacioretty Nov. 26. He missed 21 games because of the concussion.MORE NEWS: Search For Kodiak, The National Aviary's Missing Steller's Sea Eagle Enters Third Day
