Le­tang takes Cup to hos­pi­tal

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

Pitts­burgh Pen­guins de­fence­man Kris Le­tang was spend­ing Sun­day with the Stan­ley Cup in Mon­treal where he vis­ited sick chil­dren at Ste-Jus­tine hos­pi­tal.

Le­tang spent an hour and a half chat­ting with pa­tients and pos­ing for pho­to­graphs as he toured sev­eral wards.

The Mon­treal na­tive had to watch from the side­lines as his team de­feated Nashville to win its sec­ond straight Stan­ley Cup.

The all-star de­fence­man missed the en­tire play­offs with a neck in­jury but says his strug­gles are noth­ing com­pared to what the chil­dren in the hos­pi­tal are go­ing through.

He says his re­hab is go­ing well and he feels ready to play next NHL sea­son.
