Kris Letang became very good friends with Mike Matheson during his years in Pittsburgh. The Penguins, unfortunately, traded him to the Montreal Canadiens to acquire Jeff Petry and Ryan Poehling.

Letang spoke to the media after the trade, he was heartbroken.
Check out his comments:
It's really hard to see Mike go,» Letang said in French to RDS during a LSHL hockey tournament.

«He's a good friend of mine, I know his background. In Florida, he didn't have a good time. But he came to Pittsburgh, where we have an extraordinary coach for defensemen in Todd Reirden. He really took him under his wing and put him back to the player he should be, explosive with a lot of attack. I think his journey has been incredible. It hurts me, I won't hide it. But I know at the same time that it's life, it's hockey.»
