Robert Bortuzzo has made a case to replace Kris Letang if the latter (stroke) doesn't return to the Penguins' defense corps this season.
The physical Thunder Bay, Ontario, native was used as the Penguins' No. 6 defenseman against the Jets in Winnipeg on Thursday and is receiving rave reviews from assistant coach Todd Reirden, who oversees Pittsburgh's defensemen. "He has really done a great job recently," Reirden said. "He's sending a pretty loud and clear message that he wants to have that spot, to be in the lineup, if Kris isn't available." Bortuzzo hasn't been a healthy scratch since March 15 and, in the subsequent 11 games, is a plus-4. Apr 5 - 10:53 AM
