Wes Crosby - Correspondent

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins forward Pascal Dupuis will miss at least six months after being diagnosed with a blood clot in his lung, the Penguins announced Wednesday.

Dupuis, 35, is on injectable blood thinners and will transition to an oral blood thinner later in his recovery, according to Penguins physician Dr. Dharmesh Vyas. Dupuis and Vyas each said he is not sure if the ailment will end Dupuis' playing career.

"It's not a great situation to be in, but that's the card I've been dealt," Dupuis said. "Hockey's definitely second in my mind right now and [his family is] the most important part of my life right now. So, I just have to be healthy for them."

Vyas said Dupuis had a blood clot in his leg, and the clot moved to his lung. Dupuis is stable, and a battery of tests is pending, Vyas said. He also said it was "extremely important" the clot was identified when it was because it could have been life-threatening if left untreated.
