His point total is tied for 14th in the NHL.
Starting Thursday, Penguins fans can vote for Kris Letang to go to the All-Star Game on the NHL’s new “Last Men In” ballot. The new feature allows fans to vote for the final player named to each division roster. Letang is the nominee from the Penguins.
Former Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury will play on the Pacific Division team for the Las Vegas Golden Knights. He will share the net with Anaheim Ducks goalie and Pittsburgh-area native John Gibson.
