Pascal Dupuis had an assist in a 4-3 victory over Colorado on Thursday.
Dupuis has two goals and three points in 11 games this season. He's worth keeping an eye on, but we're not confident that the 36-year-old forward is going to have a significant season from an offensive perspective. Nov 20 - 11:22 AM

Pascal Dupuis returned to the Pittsburgh Penguins Wednesday night and helped them defeat the visiting Montreal Canadiens 4-3 in a shootout.

Dupuis scored 13 seconds into the game, deflecting a shot by Sidney Crosby past Montreal goalie Mike Condon. He finished the contest with two shots on net and three blocked shots. He was sent to the hospital last Friday for what the Pens described as a precaution after he experienced symptoms that may or may not have been related to his blood clot history. The tests came back negative. He missed Pittsburgh's previous two games. As predicted by Rotoworld earlier Wednesday, Dupuis played on a line with Crosby and Beau Bennett, both of whom assisted on his goal.

Pascal Dupuis has been given the green light to play on Wednesday.

Dupuis was sent to the hospital on Friday for what the Penguins described "as a precaution prior to the game after experiencing symptoms that may or may not be related to his blood clot history." Fortunately the tests came back negative. Look for him to play with Sidney Crosby and Beau Bennett.

Pascal Dupuis expects to play Wednesday against Montreal.

He has to pass one more medical test Tuesday to be officially cleared to dress in Wednesday's game, but it's believed that it won't be an issue. The Penguins and Dupuis aren't elaborating on what the test is or what cased the injury scare, but he did say that something happened regarding his leg that warranted further evaluation.

Pascal Dupuis took to the ice for Monday's practice.

He underwent testing to determine if he was suffering from blood clot-related problems, but his involvement in the session suggests that isn't the case. The Penguins have not updated Dupuis' status yet, but he didn't look restricted during the practice.

Pascal Dupuis could retire from hockey if his blood clots return.

Dupuis missed Friday's game as he was sent to hospital as a precaution. He was experiencing symptoms that may have been related to his blood clot problem of last season. He stated to Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review on September 28 that he would retire if the blood clots returned. "I know what I've accomplished," Dupuis told Rossi. "I have to listen to my body. If it's even close. If it's even a thought that maybe ... if it even looks like something, again, I'm pulling myself out. I'm done. I'm not going to risk it." Hopefully it is not serious and that Dupuis will resume his NHL career.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have made a statement of sorts on why Pascal Dupuis has been sent to the hospital.

A potential reasoning for Dupuis' hospitalization has been noted by the Penguins, "as a precaution prior to the game after experiencing symptoms that may or may not be related to his blood clot history." Take that for what you will, whatever the reasoning, here's hoping Dupuis will come out just fine.

Pascal Dupuis was taken to the hospital on Friday night as a precaution.

It's still unknown why Dupuis was taken to the hospital, and while the natural inclination is to fear it's related to his blood clots, we simply don't know enough at this time. But we will keep you posted. Dupuis had a goal, six PIMs, nine hits, and 12 shots through half a dozen games thus far.
Nov 6 - 8:25 PM

Pascal Dupuis is enjoying his time back on the first line with Sidney Crosby.

And who wouldn't? The two have played together quite a lot through Dupuis' career in Pittsburgh but last season was a bad one for Dupuis as he was diagnosed with a blood clot in his leg and played only 16 games after missing 43 the previous year with a torn ACL. He has a goal in five games this season with a plus-4 rating. It could be time to climb aboard the Pascal Dupuis bandwagon.
Oct 31 - 8:45 AM

Pascal Dupuis practiced on the Penguins' top line on Friday.

Dupuis played on Thursday for the first time in nearly a year. He meshed well with Sidney Crosby before being plagued by health problems and if Dupuis can go back to playing alongside him, that would be a big boost for Dupuis.
Oct 23 - 6:18 PM

Pascal Dupuis (lower body) is set to return on Thursday.

That's a bit of a surprise seeing as Dupuis wasn't projected to be back until November. He missed most of the 2014-15 campaign due to blood clots and then suffered a lower-body injury in early October, delaying his return from his original problem. He's projected to play on the fourth line tonight, but naturally he could move up as he shakes off the rust.
Oct 22 - 11:29 AM

Pascal Dupuis (lower body) was back on the ice for practice Sunday.

"Felt good. Good step in the right direction," he said. "As far as time frame, I'm a little bit under two weeks, right on the money. Starting to feel good. The process was to come back and skate with the team. It went pretty good." Coach Mike Johnston likes Dupuis' versatility, but fantasy owners will be interested to see if Dupuis can stick on the top line with Sidney Crosby and Phil Kessel when he is able to return to the lineup.
Oct 19 - 2:58 PM

Pascal Dupuis will miss the next four-to-five weeks with a lower-body injury.

It's another unfortunate setback for Dupuis, who has been limited to just 55 games over the last two seasons. He hasn't played since Nov. 15 due to blood clots and if there's any silver lining to be found it's that his latest injury isn't related to his past problems. By the time the 36-year-old returns from this injury though, roughly a year will have passed since his last NHL game.
Oct 6 - 9:23 AM

Pascal Dupuis is projected to miss at least a week due to an undisclosed injury.

According to TSN's Bob McKenzie, the injury is not related to the blood clot that kept him out of the lineup for the vast majority of the 2014-15 season. We'll update Dupuis' status when we learn more.
Oct 5 - 4:58 PM

Pascal Dupuis scored a goal in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes.

Dupuis is a feel good story. He was limited to just 16 games because of a blood clot and it's nice to see the veteran return to the Penguins lineup. Dupuis' goal late in the third period cut Carolina's lead in half but that's as close as Pittsburgh would come. The 36-year-old may not be able to put up numbers as big as he did even just a few years ago, but surpassing the 30-point mark should be a realistic expectation.
