Kris Letang has been mentoring fellow defenseman Simon Despres.
Despres is expected to make the final roster of the Penguins as he'll have to clear waivers if he does not crack the lineup and it's unlikely that the Penguins will get to keep him. "He's been here for a while, so I'm trying to help him out," Letang said of Despres. "In my mind, he's a really good NHL player. He's got all the assets to become one of the best. He's one of the guys who I'm going to take care of, for sure." Despres played 34 games last season, picking up four assists. Look for a bigger season in 2014-15 as he should get 20-25 points.
