Penguins Injury Update: Pascal Dupuis is in the lineup

By on 10/18/2014 08:00:00 PM

Pittsburgh Penguins forward Pascal Dupuis returned to the lineup Saturday night, after being stretchered off the ice just two days ago, as confirmed by the team on their official Twitter account. Dupuis was cross-checked in front of the net by Dallas Stars defenseman Alex Goligoski and hit in the neck or upper-back area by teammate Kris Letang's shot from the point while he was down.

The incident looked very scary. Dupuis remained on his knees in discomfort and threw off his gloves, shaking his hands before play was stopped with 6:58 remaining in the period. He was tended to while on his back for several minutes and gave a 'thumbs-up' to the crowd while leaving the ice.

He skated on Friday, and is now in the game. In the end, he did not miss a single game.

The 35-year-old has appeared in three games so far, including the game he left. He has one goal and three assists. He averaged around 17 minutes TOI in the first two games.
