Dupuis skated on Wednesday for the first time since undergoing knee surgery.
Dupuis had knee surgery on February to repair a torn ACL he suffered on December 23 vs. the Senators. Dupuis has not been cleared for contact, but this is a positive step in his rehab and should be ready for the start of the 2014-15 season. Dupuis had 20 points (7G / 13A) in 39 games before getting hurt and should land on the Penguins top-line with Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz this season. Playing with Crosby is certain to help the 35-year-old produce and a 20-goal, 50-point season should be more than attainable.
Dupuis needs surgery on his ACL and could miss the rest of the season.
Dupuis left Monday's game in the first period and did not return. The injuries continue to mount for the Pegnuins as they lose another top-6 forward for what is an extended period of time. Dupuis is out indefinitely.
Dupuis (lower-body) will travel with the team to Boston.
Dupuis was injured in Thursday's game vs. the Sharks shortly after he scored a goal. He did not return to the game, but will travel with the team and could be in the lineup tomorrow. Monitor his status during the Penguins' morning skate.
Pascal Dupuis retired to the locker room with an unspecified injury shortly after deflecting a Brooks Orpik shot past Niemi 27 seconds into the second period.
The Penguins already were deploying a somewhat diluted lineup, as Evgeni Malkin was held out of the game because of an unspecified injury that has led to him being listed as day-to-day. Dupuis' injury will require further evaluation, according to coach Dan Bylsma. Consider him day-to-day until an official injury report is released.
Dupuis missed practice on Thursday, but was on the ice this morning and will play on Saturday. Dupuis will skate on his regular line with Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz. He has two goals and nine assists in 16 games.
Dupuis (undisclosed) was absent from Penguins practice this morning.
Dupuis left Wednesday's game after the second period and did not return. The Penguins don't play until Saturday so there is a chance that Dupuis will be good to go. Jayson Megna was practicing in Dupuis spot alongside Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz.
