Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang entered the NHL’s COVID protocol and has been ruled out for Saturday’s game against the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs.

“He is not a confirmed positive. He has had a positive test,” Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said of the two-time Stanley Cup winner. “He is in the process of confirmatory tests, and that’s part of the protocol.”

Letang, 34, has recorded four assists for his lone points in four games this season.

He has 586 points (134 goals, 452 assists) in 867 career games since being selected by the Penguins in the third round of the 2005 NHL Draft.
