He also has a virus and some sickness. So there’s some other things...
via Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Penguins defensemen Kris Letang and Zbynek Michalek will be returning to Pittsburgh for further evaluation of medical issues.
That means defensemen Robert Bortuzzo and Alexandre Picard, both of whom were recalled from Wilkes-Barre this afternoon, figure to be in the Penguins’ lineup against the New York Rangers tonight.
Pittsburgh defensemen Kris Letang and Zbynek Michalek traveled back home to be re-evaluated while the Penguins battled the New York Rangers on Tuesday.

Leblanc, the Canadiens first round pick in 2009, slots...
