PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- Penguins defenseman Kris Letang has been pulled out of tonight's game due to COVID-19 protocols.
The Penguins made the announcement early Saturday afternoon.
"He is not a confirmed positive," Coach Mike Sullivan said. "He has had a positive test. He is in the process of confirmatory tests, and that's part of the protocol."
This means Letang will not play against the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight along with Jeff Carter, Bryan Rust and Sidney Crosby.
The Penguins are scheduled to face off against the Maple Leafs starting at 7 p.m. tonight.
