PITTSBURGH (AP) — Recovering from a stroke, Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang said his doctors have reassured him that he'll be play hockey again.

When that could happen is unclear.

The 26-year-old Letang spoke to the media before the Penguins faced Montreal on Thursday night, the first time he has spoken to reporters since having the stroke on a West Coast trip before the Olympic break.

Letang said: "I'm targeting it day-by-day. I'm trying to improve every day I come here. I try to exercise the best I can. I see doctors pretty much every week, twice a week to get better. So we'll go from there."

Doctors are treating Letang with blood thinners and he has been doing light exercises without weights.
