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. Nov 19 - 1:15 PM

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 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).

Pascal Dupuis (neck) will partake in the morning skate on Saturday after which time it will be decided upon if he is able to go Saturday night.

Dupuis suffered what looked to be a serious injury on Thursday when he took a puck to the back of his neck after he was crosschecked and he had to be taken off the ice on a stretcher. But the winger skated on Friday and he could be ready to go when the Penguins take on the undefeated New York Islanders Saturday. Stay tuned.

Pascal Dupuis (neck) skated for 14 minutes on Friday morning after he left Thursday night's game on a stretcher.

He took to the ice before the Penguins practiced and he didn't join the session. Dupuis was struck in the back of the neck by a Kris Letang shot after he was knocked down by Dallas defender Alex Goligoski. His status hasn't been determined yet, but there appears to be a chance that he could play Saturday.

Pascal Dupuis left Thursday night's game on a stretcher after getting crosschecked to the ice in front of the net and taking a slap shot to the back of the neck.

Dupuis gave the thumbs up as he was exiting the game, but it's a tough play for the often-injured winger. His head was facing down while the puck deflected off his backside, somewhere between the top of his jersey and his helmet. We will keep you posted on the severity of his injury.

Pascal Dupuis missed the final 43 games last season when he tore his right ACL, he started making up for lost time on his stat line with four points in the season opener.

Dupers' goal made it 3-0 off a sweet feed from Olli Maatta in the first. He then assisted on Pittsburgh's next three goals, which expanded their lead all the way to 6-3. Plus he did all of that in just 16:26 of ice time. Not half bad!

Pascal Dupuis (knee) took part in Monday's preseason game.

Dupuis was on the ice for 16:28 minutes as he gets ready for the Penguins' regular season opener. He was limited to 39 games in 2013-14 after he tore the MCL and ACL in his knee. At this point his knee feels 100%.

Pascal Dupuis (knee) wasn't wearing a no-contact sweater during Thursday's practice.

It was the first time at training camp that he wore a regular black jersey. Dupuis is coming back from a serious knee injury, so he is a risky pick this year. However, the potential for points will be there if he plays alongside Sidney Crosby again.

Pascal Dupuis practiced on Friday and said his knee was fine.

Dupuis suffered the injury in late January and underwent surgery on February 12. He said that he knee felt a little tight when he first skated on Friday but he forgot about it after a few minutes of skating. He wore a red jersey to indicate non-contact but it's expected he will be cleared within a week or so. Dupuis is slated to skate on one of the top two lines and likely with Sidney Crosby. Look for a 25 goal and 50 point season from the veteran.
