It seems as if Pittsburgh defenseman, Kris Letang, will be joining the ranks of Sidney Crosby, but not in a good way. Letang has been sidelined with a possible concussion. With his second possible concussion of the season, Letang is no stranger to rejoining Crosby on the sidelines.

Penguins’ head coach, Dan Bylsma has indicated that Letang has symptoms and will not be in the line-up on Saturday when the Pens take on Colorado. When the team returns from their road trip, Letang will be evaluated by concussion specialists in Pittsburgh.

This is the second time the Penguins may be losing Letang to a concussion this year. He was out with a concussion from November 26 to January 19th. Losing Letang again could be a major set-back for the Penguins, who have already played much of the year injury-stricken.

Earlier this week, Letang was checked into the end boards by Stars’ forward Vernon Fiddler has he went to play the puck behind the Penguin net half way through the first period. While turning to play the puck, Letang was clipped hard in the head by Stars’ forward, Eric Nystrom’s right arm.

Letang fell to the ice in visible discomfort and was helped to the locker room by his teammates and members of the Pittsburgh Penguins’ training staff.

Concussions seem to be a huge problem for the Pittsburgh Penguins this year. With game after game lost due to concussions, what do you think can be done about it?
