Pittsburgh Penguins Kris Letang will miss his fourth straight game due to an illness, the team announced on Tuesday.

Letang won’t travel with the Penguins to Buffalo for Wednesday’s match. Beyond the fact that Letang is out Wednesday, the Penguins didn’t offer any update on his condition. The team is now pursuing further evaluation.

“Kris Letang continues to not feel well,” Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said on Monday. “They’re doing further evaluations and tests on him.”

The team has not released what symptoms Letang is experiencing.

Letang was practicing regularly and playing up until Wednesday, when he sat out practice.
