Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang was released from the hospital Sunday morning after spending the night there.
Coach Johnston on Letang: “He has a concussion, so that’s been determined. He’s been released from the hospital."— Pittsburgh Penguins (@penguins) March 29, 2015
"I just went to make sure I got a piece of him so he couldn't jump by me and he obviously went into the boards awkward," Doan said, according to ESPN.com. "You never ever want to see anyone like that, especially a guy with his caliber and everything he's went through in the past couple years. You feel awful as a player when something like that happens."
Letang has a history of concussions and missed 10 weeks last season after suffering a stroke. He has played in 69 of Pittsburgh's 75 games this season and is third on the team with 54 points.
The NHL told Yahoo Sports that Doan will not face supplementary discipline.
