EDMONTON - Pittsburgh Penguins forward Pascal Dupuis has been taken to an Edmonton hospital for precautionary reasons after he experienced symptoms that the team says may or may not be related to his history of blood clots.
Dupuis was diagnosed with blood clots last year and missed the rest of the season.
He was ruled out of the Penguins' game at the Oilers.
"We've said all along that Pascal's health is the highest priority," general manager Jim Rutherford said.
"We will take every precaution necessary to ensure he is in good health."
Dupuis had returned to Pittsburgh's lineup and played in six games so far this season.
