Tonight, an unexpected twist in the hockey world as defenseman Kris Letang surpasses a longstanding record held by the legendary Bobby Orr.

Kris Letang Breaks Bobby Orr's Record

Bobby Orr, renowned for his dynamic offensive prowess, held the record for the most points in a period by a defenseman, achieving a remarkable 4-point period on December 14th, 1968. Orr's record stood untouched for decades until tonight.
In the second period of the Pittsburgh Penguins' matchup against the New York Islanders, Kris Letang made history with a stunning offensive performance, amassing an impressive 5 points in the period.
Kris Letang's five assists in the second vs NYI is the first time in NHL history a defenceman got five points in one period.

Once known for his offensive contributions, Letang had taken on a more defensive role in recent years. With the addition of Erik Karlsson, many anticipated a continued shift in Letang's playing style. However, Letang had different plans.
Breaking a record set by a hockey legend like Bobby Orr is a rare feat, and tonight, Kris Letang cements his place in the annals of hockey history with this extraordinary accomplishment.
