Dupuis will retire from the NHL because of a medical condition.
Dupuis missed the majority of the 2014-15 season because of a blood clot, but he battled back and played in 18 games this season. However, the Penguins announced on Tuesday that Dupuis will no longer play hockey because of a medical condition related to the blood clots. Dupuis will wrap up his NHL career with 190 goals and 219 assists (409 points) in 871 career regular season game.
Dupuis said all his tests came back negative; will play on Wednesday.
Dupuis missed the last two games after being taken to the hospital for testing last Friday. All tests came back negative so Dupuis is good to go tonight vs. the Canadiens. Dupuis has one goal in six games and tonight he will play on a line with Sidney Crosby and Beau Bennett.
Dupuis has missed the last two games, but he was back at practice, skating on the top line on Monday. Dupuis has one goal in six games this season. Monitor his status leading up to Wednesday’s game vs. Montreal.
Dupuis was taken to the hospital as a precaution before Friday’s game. Dupuis missed the majority of last season with a blood clot, so the Penguins want to play it safe with his health this season. Tests came back negative, so the symptoms aren’t believed to be related to a blood clot, but he will again be held out of the lineup on Saturday.
Dupuis (lower-body) will make his season debut on Thursday.
Dupuis will play in his first game since last November. He battled a blood clot last year and has missed the first six games of this season with a lower-body injury. Dupuis will likely be eased back into action in the Penguins’ bottom six.
Dupuis (lower-body) is on the ice for the Penguins morning skate.
Dupuis continues to skate with the Penguins as he nears a return from a lower-body injury. Today was his first gameday skate which a great sign he is on the verge of playing. Daniel Sprong will likely lose his roster spot when Dupuis is healthy.
Dupuis is expected to miss 4-5 weeks with a lower-body injury.
Dupuis has not played since November 15th of last year because of a blood clot in his lung. He has gotten over the blood clot, but will be out for at least another month with a lower-body injury. Dupuis injury allowed Daniel Sprong to crack the opening night roster.
Dupuis (blood clot) will not play again this season.
Dupuis has not played since November 15th because of a blood clot in his lungs. He will miss the rest of this season, but coach Mike Johnston did not rule out the possibility of Dupuis being back in 2015-16.
Dupuis has been diagnosed with a blood clot in his lung and will be out of the lineup for at least six months while undergoing treatment with blood thinners.
The clot was identified during testing Monday, after Dupuis had complained of discomfort in his chest. “Pascal had a blood clot in his leg that traveled to his lung,” said Dr. Dharmesh Vyas, the Penguins’ team physician. "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.” Dupuis previously was diagnosed with a blood clot in January 2014, shortly after he suffered torn ligaments in his knee. He was on blood thinners for six months while also recovering from surgery and rehabilitating his knee.
It was originally expected that Dupuis was going to be held out of tonight’s game because of an injury, but after today’s morning skate, head coach Mike Johnston said Dupuis is “not feeling well”. Consider him day-to-day.
Dupuis (upper-body) is on the ice for pre-game warmups; likely to play.
After being stretchered off of the ice on Thursday it is a great sign that Dupuis did not suffer a serious injury after being hit by a Kris Letang snapshot. Taking warmups is a good sign that he will play tonight. He has not recorded a point in his last two games after scoring a goal with three assists in the opener.
Dupuis (upper-body) is a game-time decision for Saturday.
Dupuis was injured after being struck by a shot on Thursday but skated on Friday and took part in the morning skate today which suggests he will play tonight. We will have to wait for pre-game warmups to see if he plays. If he is unable to go, expect Blake Comeau to take his spot on the second line.
Dupuis (upper-body) has been medically cleared to play.
This is pretty remarkable. Dupuis was stretchered off of the ice last night, but skated this morning and is already medically cleared to play. Monitor Dupuis status during tomorrow's morning skate, but he should play.
Less than 24 hours after Dupuis was stretchered off of the ice after being hit by a puck, Dupuis is skating and stick handling this morning. He reportedly looks as if he was not even injured last night, which is a great sign after a scary incident. Expect an update on Dupuis later today.
