Dupuis Out Tonight; Taken to Hospital as Precaution

by Staff Writer / Pittsburgh Penguins

Pens forward Pascal Dupuis will not play tonight against the Edmonton Oilers.

Dupuis was taken to the hospital as a precaution prior to the game after experiencing symptoms that may or may not be related to his blood clot history.

“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.”

UPDATE: Dupuis' tests came back negative according to head coach Mike Johnston.

"He went for precautionary tests before the game and the tests came back negative," Johnston said. "He will be re-evaluated in Pittsburgh. We want to make sure so he'll get checked out and won't play tomorrow night."
