PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Pascal Dupuis is good to go.

The Pittsburgh Penguins forward has been cleared to return to full-contact workouts after missing most of the 2014-15 season due to blood clots. General manager Jim Rutherford said Thursday the blood clot has dissolved and that doctors say Dupuis can play, though he will continue to take blood-thinning medication.

The 36-year-old Dupuis had six goals and five assists in 16 games last season before being diagnosed with the blood clots in December. Rutherford called the news "a big step forward" for Dupuis, who has 188 goals during 13-plus seasons in the NHL with Minnesota, the New York Rangers, Atlanta and the Penguins.
