Pittsburgh Penguins are getting Kris Letang back. The blue-liner has been cleared to join the team in training camp.

He underwent neck surgery five months ago. He missed the team’s entire Stanley Cup playoff journey.

The Penguins won the Stanley Cup for the second straight season in June. He was limited to just 41 games last season.

As a result, Letang wants to get the ball rolling on the season.

“He wants to play 40 minutes a game, but I think the coaches will just take it a day or a week or a game at a time and see where it goes,” Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford said. “I would suspect that he would probably ease his way into the preseason and then go from there.”

The Penguins begin their training camp on Sept. 15. The team’s first exhibition contest is against the Buffalo Sabres on Sept. 19.
