Pascal Dupuis is going to have ACL surgery and he may miss the rest of the season.
Penguins winger Pascal Dupuis will undergo ACL surgery for his knee and could miss the rest of the season.
Dupuis, 34, suffered the ACL injury Monday night in Ottawa after Sidney Crosby fell into his knee following a hip check from Senators defenseman Marc Methot.
“Pascal Dupuis will be going for ACL knee surgery in a couple of weeks and is out indefinitely,” Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma said. “The timetable is likely that he’ll be out for the remainder of the season, but we’ll see after the surgery in a couple weeks.”
Joe Vitale assumed Dupuis’ spot on the team’s top line with Crosby and Chris Kunitz at Friday's morning skate.

In case you missed it from Monday Pascal Dupuis's knee got jacked...
Looks like Bobby Mac knows it isn't good.
I imagine PIT will update specifics of Pascal Dupuis' LBI soon but I'm hearing it's not good at all. Pens plagued by injury this season.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) December 27, 2013
Yikes. Dupuis wasn't lighting the world on fire, but he still is a solid NHL player. Have to think this forces the Pens to make a move at some point in the new year.

Commissioner Gary Bettman today upheld the 15-game suspension that was assessed to Boston Bruins forward Shawn Thornton by the Department of Player Safety for punching and injuring an unsuspecting opponent, Brooks Orpik of the Pittsburgh Penguins, in NHL Game No. 438 at Boston on Dec. 7.Add a comment
This midget is the only star of the game on either side.
On second look, the bulge in the pants at the ankles is a dead giveaway. That's a normal-sized person.Add a comment
