It has been a rough few weeks for Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang as he continues to deal with injuries problems. On Tuesday, Letang returned to the ice in the Penguins 1-0 win over the Montreal Candiens after missing three games due to a lower body injury. Unfortunately for Letang, he suffered another injury.

According to Renaud Lavoie of Réseau des sports (RDS):

There is no specific incident or play on the ice that links back to the toe injury, but it’s just the way Letang’s luck has been as of late. Letang logged logged 24:20 minutes in his return.

Another note from Renaud Lavoie is the health of goalie Marc-Andre Fleury. Lavoie reports that Fluery is suffering from a sore neck, but the team will not know how serious the injury is until further evaluation.

If you missed last night’s game, here is the collision that injured Fleury:
