Dupuis will not play on Saturday vs. the Flames.

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 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.

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 reported numbness in his arm after being hit by the shot, but sensation started coming back after the game. Dupuis missed 43 games last season with a knee injury and could miss an extended period of time now.

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.

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.
