Kris Letang will be out indefinitely after the Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman suffered a stroke earlier this week, the team said Wednesday.

Penguins general manager Ron Hextall said in a statement that Letang was taken to a hospital Monday after reporting his symptoms to the team's medical staff. The Penguins said the six-time All-Star was not experiencing any lasting effects and that this is not believed to be career-threatening.
