It was announced this week that the Pittsburgh Penguins franchise defender Kris Letang had suffered a stroke. This was the second one in 8 years, the first one happening in 2014 which kept him from playing hockey for over two months.

While having one stroke is horrible, having two is absolutely terrible, and when the news broke people knew Letang would be out a long time, and many believed he should consider retirement to save his health.
Retirement though doesn't seem to be in the mind of Letang, and a lengthy time away from the team doesn't seem to be in it either according to this NHL Insider.
Originally Insiders were mentioning that Letang could miss the remainder of the season originally, but Pierre LeBrun reports now:
Lucky for Letang, this stroke was a lot more mild compared to his first one in 2014. Letang signed a new 6 year contract this past summer which keeps him on the team until he is 41.
He believes he has a lot more hockey left in him, but is it worth the risk?
