Oct. 24, 2014 Letestu scored his first two goals of the season in Thursday's victory at San Jose. Letestu has never finished with more than 34 points but he's also on pace for a career high in shots so he could be someone to keep an eye on going forward.
Oct. 18, 2014 Letestu notched a pair of assists in Friday's 3-2 win over Calgary. Letestu's two points were his first of the season. He doesn't have much fantasy value despite Friday's solid showing.

2018-09-29 analysis Letestu inked a one-year, two-way contract with the Blue Jackets three days after getting dropped from his professional tryout agreement with the Panthers. The 33-year-old has recorded 93 goals and 117 assists over 558 NHL contests. It will undoubtedly be strange for him to get bussed to the minor league, considering he hasn't played in the AHL since the 2009-10 campaign with AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scra
2018-09-29 update Letestu will head to AHL Cleveland having cleared waivers Friday, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

2018-09-27 analysis It was long believed that Letestu had a deal in hand from the Jackets when he joined the Panthers on a PTO -- with the hopes of avoiding a two-way contract. However, after being cut from Florida's camp, the veteran center will return to Columbus for the upcoming season. Letestu was immediately placed on waivers by the club for the purpose of reassignment to the minors, where he will start the 2018
2018-09-27 update Letestu agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way contract with Columbus on Thursday.
2018-09-24 analysis Letestu apparently didn't show the organization enough during his PTO to warrant a permanent deal with the club. Considering the center was a somewhat coveted trade asset at last year's deadline -- it's surprising to see him struggling to find a club this season. What's next for the Alberta native remains to be seen, but he may need to head overseas if he wants to keep playing.
2018-09-24 update Letestu was cut by the Panthers on Monday.
