NHL roundup: Penguins' Letang placed on injured reserve

The SportsXchange

Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang, who has already missed two games, will also miss Sunday's game and perhaps more after being placed on the injured reserve list by the team on Sunday.

Letang has a lower body injury, and his placement on the IR is retroactive to last Tuesday.

The Penguins have called up 2011 first-round pick Joe Morrow to take Letang's place.

Letang is eligible to return for Wednesday's game against Ottawa. Letang has three goals and six assists in 10 games this season.

---The NHL and the NHL Players Association are discussing possible realignment, the New York Post reported.

NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said a realignment plan for next season is in the works but nothing has been approved by the Board of Governors, according to the report.

---NHL officials had planned to speak to Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mikhail Grabovski on Sunday after it was alleged that he bit the Montreal Canadiens' Max Pacioretty in Saturday's game, but the league's conversation with Grabovsky has been postponed until Monday, the Montreal Gazette reported. If any penalty is be levied, it will be done at that time.
