Pens' Dupuis Skates On His Own Tuesday

News: Pascal Dupuis (blood clot) skated on his own Tuesday morning.
Analysis: He's expected to be sidelined for six months with the ailment, but that he's been able to get back on the ice on his own is certainly a nice sign as he goes through the long recovery.

Penguins Move Dupuis To IR

News: Pascal Dupuis (blood clot) was placed on injured reserve Friday, Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Doctors diagnosed Pascal Dupuis with the blood clot in his lung earlier this week, ruling him out for at least six months while he recovers from treatment. The move to IR will give the Penguins an additional roster spot with which to try to cover for Dupuis' absence.

Pens' Dupuis Out Six Months With Blood Clot

News: Pascal Dupuis has been diagnosed with a blood clot in his lung and will be out for at least six months.
Analysis: The Penguins identified the clot Monday after Pascal Dupuis complained of chest discomfort, resulting in the winger being prescribed a treatment of blood thinners. It's the second consecutive season that Dupuis will have to deal with a major health concern, after knee surgery limited him to 39 games in 2013-14. It's looking like this latest scare could be another season-ender for Dupuis, while also putting his career on uncertain ground. The 35-year-old previously underwent treatment for a blood clot last January while recovering from the knee injury. Dupuis had been off to a magnificent start to the campaign under first-year coach Mike Johnson, racking up six goals and 11 points in 16 games. Now that he'll be out of commission for perhaps the rest of the season, Patric Hornqvist or Beau Bennett could be tasked with replacing him on the Penguins' top line.

Penguins' Dupuis Dealing With Illness

News: Pascal Dupuis is sidelined with an illness, and not a physical ailment, Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: It was announced Monday that Pascal Dupuis would not play Tuesday due to an unspecified health issue, and it is not clear what type of setback he is dealing with. Consider Dupuis day-to-day and questionable for Pittsburgh's next game Friday.

Pens' Dupuis Out For Tuesday

News: Pascal Dupuis (undisclosed) will not play Tuesday against the Canadins, Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Pascal Dupuis missed Monday's practice to go see a doctor for undisclosed reasons, which is certainly more than a little troubling. There's no word on a timetable for his return at this point, but there should be more information released in the next couple days.

Dupuis Carries Pens To Victory Friday

News: Pascal Dupuis supplied all the Penguins' offense Friday, potting a pair of goals in a 2-1 win over the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Pascal Dupuis looks to be revitalized playing next to his old buddies Chris Kunitz and Sidney Crosby, as he converted a beautiful centering pass from Sid for the game winner 15 seconds into the third period. This was a nice rebound for the Pens after last game's 5-0 shellacking at the hands of the Rangers, so it'll be interesting to see just how long coach Mike Johnston keeps Dupuis on the top line. One thing, however, is for certain -- as long as he's playing with Crosby or Evgeni Malkin, Duper is a fantasy must-start.

Dupuis Skates With Old Linemates Tuesday

News: Pascal Dupuis skated with Chris Kunitz and Sidney Crosby on Tuesday after the Rangers jumped out to a commanding lead over Pittsburgh.
Analysis: Coach Mike Johnston mixed lines, shaking things up in a 5-0 loss, but that was likely more of a function of the lopsided score than a permanent change. Pascal Dupuis has slumped with just one assist in his last six games while skating with Evgeni Malkin and Blake Comeau. Now that Beau Bennett has been added back into the mix, coach Johnston has more options with the extra depth.

Pens' Dupuis: Goals In Three Straight

News: Pascal Dupuis supplied a power-play goal and an assist in Tuesday's 8-3 win over the Devils.
Analysis: Pascal Dupuis' power-play goal over the weekend against Nashville was only his third of the last eight seasons, but he's now got two tallies on the man advantage in two games. He already has more power-play time through eight games (12:52) than he did in 39 contests last year (11:21). The 35-year-old winger has continued his bounce-back season following knee surgery, is averaging a point per game and has four points over his last three outings.

Pens' Dupuis Reaches Milestone Saturday

News: Pascal Dupuis tallied a power-play goal Saturday for just the third time in his last eight seasons.
Analysis: The Penguins have already given Pascal Dupuis almost as much power-play time (10:54) as he saw in 39 games last year (11:21). The winger's goal against Nashville represents his career 400th NHL point. Dupuis now has six points (3G, 3A) in seven games.

Pens' Dupuis Tallies First Point Since Injury

News: Pascal Dupuis potted a goal in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Red Wings.
Analysis: The winger's first-period tally marked his first point in three games since returning from the scary incident last week that resulted in him being stretchered off the ice -- Pascal Dupuis was initially credited with a goal Wednesday but a league review awarded the goal to Paul Martin on Thursday. Dupuis has played his usual minutes in the mid-teens since returning to action, and as Thursday's one-goal, four-shot performance revealed, the veteran's health doesn't seem to be a concern.

Pens' Dupuis Back In The Fold Saturday

News: Just two days after taking a stinger to the neck, Pascal Dupuis skated just under 16 minutes (15:54 TOI) against the Islanders on Saturday.
Analysis: His night was mostly uneventful -- he registered one shot and one block -- but the fact that he was able to play was remarkable in itself. Pascal Dupuis saw 1:53 TOI on the power play as coach Mike Johnston continues to utilize the forward in different ways than did former coach Dan Bylsma.

Pens' Dupuis (Arm) To Play Saturday

News: Pascal Dupuis (arm) was on the ice for pregame warmups and looks like he'll play Saturday against the Islanders, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: With the usual 20 skaters on the ice for warmups, the Penguins don't even appear to be preparing for a potential late scratch for Pascal Dupuis, signaling that he'll receive clearance to return to the lineup. Incredibly, Dupuis won't miss any games after he was stretchered off the ice Thursday night with what looked to be a serious injury.

Pens To Decide On Dupuis' Status During Afternoon

News: Pascal Dupuis (arm) said that the Penguins would reach a decision on his availability for Saturday night's tilt with the Islanders over the afternoon, Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: For the second consecutive day, Pascal Dupuis was moving around without any apparent issues at morning skate, giving him a legitimate shot at not missing any time due to the arm injury. He was skating on his usual spot on the Pens' second line, rejoining mates Evgeni Malkin and Brandon Sutter.

Pens' Dupuis: (Arm) Medically Cleared To Play

News: Pascal Dupuis (arm) has been medically cleared to play, Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: Coach Mike Johnston said Pascal Dupuis would be evaluated during Saturday's morning skate, before the team determines if the winger will be available for the game later that day against the Islanders. Dupuis looked like he would be in store for a long absence after he was removed from the ice on a stretcher Thursday, so it would be quite remarkable if he wasn't forced to miss any games at all.

Pens' Dupuis Skates, But Doesn't Practice Friday

News: Pascal Dupuis (arm) skated on his own Friday, but didn't take part in the Penguins' practice, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Even though he didn't join his teammates for full practice, merely seeing Pascal Dupuis on the ice beforehand has to bring some relief for the Penguins. The winger was stretchered off the ice during Thursday's game following a check to the back that resulted in Dupuis falling on his arm and experiencing numbness. During Friday's skate, Dupuis was able to handle and shoot the puck with no apparent issues. It still seems more likely than not that Dupuis will be held out of Saturday's game against the Islanders, but fortunately, it looks like he'll avoid a long-term absence.

Pens' Dupuis Experiencing Arm Numbness

News: Coach Mike Johnston said some of the feeling has returned to Pascal Dupuis's arm, which had gone numb after being cross-checked by Alex Goligoski on Thursday, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: It's possible Pascal Dupuis suffered some sort of nerve injury, but the Penguins coach gave no further information on the 35-year-old forward. Dupuis, who played in only 39 games last season due to a knee injury, will almost surely miss Saturday's game (and perhaps more time) though the severity of Thursday's ailment remains unknown.

Pens' Dupuis Leaves On Stretcher

News: Pascal Dupuis left Thursday's game on a stretcher in the second period, Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: Pascal Dupuis was reportedly checked from behind and was hit in the head/neck area with the puck. The situation with this potentially serious injury should be updated in the near future.

Pens' Dupuis Cashes In Thursday Opener

News: Pascal Dupuis compiled his first four-point game in 10 seasons Thursday, scoring one goal while adding three assists against Anaheim.
Analysis: His goal came at even strength and a second score was disallowed. Pascal Dupuis's helpers came at even strength, short-handed and on the man advantage, respectively. The winger, who was playing in his first game since Dec. 23, 2013 after undergoing knee surgery, also saw more than two minutes on the second-unit power play (2:07 TOI). Dupuis totaled 11:21 TOI on the man advantage last season in 39 games. New head coach Mike Johnston may give Dupuis more time on the power play, given his fine performance Thursday.

Pens' Dupuis Healthy For Season

News: Pascal Dupuis appears set to serve as the right wing for Sidney Crosby heading into the regular season.
Analysis: Coach Mike Johnston sat Pascal Dupuis on Wednesday in order to give Patric Hornqvist a look with Crosby and Chris Kunitz. After the game, however, he said he simply wanted to see a right-handed shot on the line. Dupuis has fallen off the radar after missing the second half of last season, but he's two years removed from 20 goals and 38 points in 48 games. He makes for a nice, end-game sleeper pick, especially in single-season leagues.

Pens' Dupuis Plays Monday

News: Pascal Dupuis (knee) made his preseason debut Monday, going pointless with four shots on goal and four PIM.
Analysis: The 35-year-old is recovering from spring knee surgery. New head coach Mike Johnston has intimated that Pascal Dupuis might see action on the third line, but it's difficult envisioning Dupuis anywhere other than alongside Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz, at least at the beginning of 2014-15. He led Pittsburgh with 27 shifts and skated 16:28 TOI.

Pens' Dupuis Expected Back Soon

News: Pascal Dupuis (knee) is expected to play in the final two preseason games.
Analysis: Pascal Dupuis was cleared for contact earlier this week, and should get a chance to get some experience in before the regular season begins. The veteran winger only suited up for 39 games last year, collecting seven goals and 13 assists in the process.

Pens' Dupuis Ditches No-Contact Jersey

News: Pascal Dupuis (knee) wasn't wearing a red no-contact jersey during Thursday's practice.
Analysis: With Pascal Dupuis presumably cleared for full contact, it may not take long before he's able to return to preseason action. The 35-year-old will be asked to fill a depth-scoring role for the Penguins this season after he contributed 20 points in 39 games in 2013-14.

Pens' Dupuis Not Taking Contact Initially

News: Pascal Dupuis won't take contact during the initial stages of training camp, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Though it was previously suggested that Pascal Dupuis wouldn't face any limitations entering camp, he's just a little bit behind schedule right now. He plans to begin taking contact in about a week, giving him plenty of time to get himself ready for the start of the regular season. The health of Dupuis' knee is less of a concern to fantasy players than in what capacity he might be used this season. New coach Mike Johnston has stated a preference of deploying his skaters in pairs rather than units, suggesting duty with Chris Kunitz and Sidney Crosby no longer awaits for Dupuis.

Pens' Dupuis To Take Contact During Camp

News: Pascal Dupuis (knee) is expected to receive clearance for full contact during training camp, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: The winger looks to be progressing positively from the reconstructive knee surgery that ended his most recent season prematurely, as he was skating on the ice in a red "no-contact" jersey during Wednesday's scrimmage. Pascal Dupuis likely has only a few more steps to pass in his rehab program before being cleared for full activity, but it remains undetermined where he'll fit in with the Penguins during the upcoming season. New head coach Mike Johnston prefers to use his forwards as pairs rather than traditional lines, and with the promise of working alongside luminaries Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz no longer guaranteed, Dupuis could be in line for a sharper dropoff in his point total.

Pens' Dupuis's Spot Next To Crosby Not Guaranteed

News: New head coach Mike Johnston, who prefers to group players in pairs rather than line units, has already paired Sidney Crosby with Chris Kunitz -- leaving Pascal Dupuis's spot on the unit in question, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Recovering from knee surgery, Pascal Dupuis has been skating three or four times per week since June and figures to be ready for the season's start. In the end, Dupuis will likely see plenty of action with Crosby and Kunitz, but the new head coach could shake things up. The 35-year-old's numbers were beginning to slip last year -- he had 20 points in 39 games before getting hurt -- but he's still probably worth half a point per game once again in 2014-15.
