Despite having shown an interest in returning to Switzerland, Pascal Dupuis has no immediate plans to play overseas during the lockout.
Dupuis has been taking advantage of the time away by spending time with his wife and four children. The veteran winger has been working hard to stay in game shape during the work stoppage and feels he'll be ready to go once the season eventually begins. "I work out even harder when I don't play," said Dupuis. "I'm one of those guys -- if you ask my wife, she'll tell you I'm crazy -- who is really strict when it comes down to food and exercising. For me, it doesn't change."
