Letang skated more than 22 minutes (22:30 TOI) in his first action since January on Wednesday and chipped in with an assist against Detroit.
Letang, who is expected to pair with Rob Scuderi on Wednesday, will skate at the point on the team's No.2 power-play unit.
Letang (illness) will return to the lineup Wednesday after sitting out since Jan. 27 following a stroke, Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Letang (stroke) continues to practice but has no timetable for a return. "I was so concerned that I wouldn't play again this year," Letang told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "But when I had the green light, I felt fine. The first few days (of practice) were tough. But I'm good now."
