Pascal Dupuis isn't worried about his long layoffs over the past two seasons.
He has played in just 55 games during that time because of a torn ACL and a blood clot. "I'm starting at the same time as everybody else. It's not like I'm coming back from a six-month layoff and that I'm being thrown back into the playoffs or anything like that," he said. "I've got time. I'm going to start camp at the same time as everybody else and I've been skating more than most of the guys this summer. I think everything with my game is going to be fine. I really do. I feel good about it. Obviously, my timing isn't where I want it to be, but it's summer. It will come." Dupuis is expected to play with Nick Bonino and Eric Fehr on the third line this year, but there's a chance he could be moved up because he is capable of playing on either wing. Aug 17 - 3:22 PM

Pascal Dupuis is anxious for the start of training camp and to resume his NHL career.

"In June, after the doctors ran me through a battery of final tests and cleared me to return to the ice to skate with other players, my first thought was: Man, I can't wait to take a really good shot. A nice stick to the ribs. Maybe even a puck to the face. We're not supposed to hit in the summer, but the first few times on the ice, I was going out of my way to get into scrums in the corners. The guys probably thought I was insane. I wanted to bleed, because now I finally could," Dupuis wrote in The Players' Tribune Monday. He talked about wanting to come back to win the Stanley Cup and how he got through his battle with blood clots for the opportunity to have that special moment of triumph.

Pascal Dupuis is expected to begin skating right away, as he works his way back from a blood clot on his lung.

He has received clearance to play again and is projected to be ready for next season. Dupuis' career was in jeopardy after the blood clot was diagnosed in November. "They have found the proper medication for him to continue to work out in full and prepare for next season to play," said GM Jim Rutherford. "It's really nice for him because we all know how determined and how hard he works. I'm very happy for him. He just works so hard."

Pascal Dupuis, who was diagnosed with a blood clot on his lung November 19, has been cleared to work out and take contact.

"The blood clot has dissolved, and the doctors have recommended a blood thinner medication that will allow him to play," GM Jim Rutherford said. "It's a big step forward for Pascal, and we're all excited for him." It's been a long road to recovery for Dupuis, who underwent six months of treatment with blood thinners from November through May. He registered six goals and 11 points in 16 games with the Penguins before heading to the sidelines.

Pascal Dupuis is free of clots, but Penguins GM Jim Rutherford warned that "there are other things that, from a medical point of view, have to be looked at."

Dupuis hasn't received medical clearance yet and it remains to be seen if he'll resume his career. He hasn't played since Nov. 15 because he was diagnosed with a blood clot in his lung.

There should be more known about the status of Pascal Dupuis (blood clots) within a couple of weeks.

That's the timetable that GM Jim Rutherford has given for an update on Dupuis' status. He was diagnosed with the blood clots on November 19 and managed to play another five games before the Penguins shut him down for the remainder of the season.

Pascal Dupuis (blood clot) won't play again this season.

"Based on the doctor's report I don't believe we'll see Pascal this year, and that's a big loss," GM Jim Rutherford said. "He's not going to be cleared to play until June." Dupuis has been on the sidelines since being diagnosed with a blood clot in his lung on Nov. 19. He got off to a great start this year with six goals and 11 points in 16 games, but you can scratch him off your fantasy playoff pool list. Rutherford expects Dupuis to be back next season.

Pascal Dupuis revealed on Friday that he played five games with a blood clot.

Dupuis was diagnosed with blood clots on November 19 and at the time it was thought that he would be out of action for at least six months. Dupuis wrote in Derek Jeter's The Players Tribune that he would resume his career.

The Penguins announced Wednesday that Pascal Dupuis has been diagnosed with a blood clot in his lung.

He is expected to be sidelined for at least six months. "Pascal had a blood clot in his leg that traveled to his lung," said Dr. Dharmesh Vyas, who works as the Penguins’ team physician. "In medical terms, that is a deep vein thrombosis resulting in a pulmonary embolism. This is the second such incident that we know of for Pascal. The treatment is at least six months of blood thinners, during which time he will not be able to play hockey. Other than that, his condition is stable." The clot was discovered on Monday because Dupuis was experiencing discomfort in his chest.

Pascal Dupuis fell ill on Monday and did not practice, making him a scratch against Montreal on Tuesday night.

"He went to the doctor, he wasn't feeling well, as I mentioned (Monday)," Johnston said. It doesn't sound serious, but must be frustrating given his luck against the injury bug. Blake Comeau drew in along Crosby's right wing instead. Robert Bortuzzo was sat for the first time in six games with Olli Maata's return as well.

Pascal Dupuis has been ruled out of Tuesday's game for an undisclosed reason.

Dupuis went to see a doctor on Monday rather than practice with the team. Penguins coach Mike Johnston expects to get an update in a day or two. He was able to fully participate in Saturday's contest.

Pascal Dupuis scored both goals for the Penguins in their 2-1 win over Toronto on Friday night.

Dupuis had a strong game for the Penguins. The 35-year-old also had eight shots on goal and was a plus-2 on the night. Dupuis missed most of last year with a knee injury, so it's nice to see that the veteran still has some game left. He has six goals and 11 points in 15 games this season.

Pascal Dupuis practiced on a line with Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz on Friday.

Patric Hornqvist had been playing alongside Crosby and Kunitz, but Hornqvist is being moved to the Evgeni Malkin line. That's created an opening for Dupuis, who already has plenty of experience playing with Crosby. Dupuis has four goals and nine points in 14 games this season.

Pascal Dupuis scored a goal in Pittsburgh's 5-3 loss Wednesday night.

Dupuis has two goals and five points in five games. He's been playing primarily with Evgeni Malkin in 2014-15 rather than Sidney Crosby, but obviously being able to play with either one is a huge benefit.

Remarkably, Pascal Dupuis will play for the Pittsburgh Penguins against the New York Islanders on Saturday night.

Despite a scary injury, Dupuis will end up only missing part of Thursday's action after being stretchered off the ice. He's been fantastic so far this season, scoring one goal and four points in three games with a healthy amount of shots (12 SOG).
