Coach Maurice indicated today following practice that veteran forward Mark Letestu has myocarditis. Maurice added “He’s got a virus in his heart. He’s shut down for six months. So here’s the positive ’cause it can be a really tricky situation. He’s going to be fine. They have full faith that he is going to get back to complete health but he is shut down with the exception of very light exercise for six months”.
Letestu played seven games this season with the Jets after he signed as a free agent this summer. We wish Mark the best in his recovery.
I also appear on the Illegal Curve Hockey Show every Saturday on TSN 1290 Winnipeg starting at 9 am.
And I occasionally jump in the play-by-play booth at Bell MTS Place to provide colour analysis during Manitoba Moose games.
