The Penguins haven't made it official, but Dupuis isn't expected to return this season. However, it's been assumed that Dupuis would be out for the rest of the year since Sidney Crosby landed on the outside of his leg following a hit from Ottawa's Marc Methot back on Dec. 23.

The Penguins were allowing an average of 2.18 goals per game before right winger Pascal Dupuis had a season-ending knee injury Dec. 23 in Ottawa.

Beginning with a 5-0 loss against the Senators that night, however, they have been giving up an average of 3.23 goals a game. "He's a responsible two-way forward," defenseman Matt Niskanen said. "For [the first] line, I think he helped a lot in that regard. "A lot of times you'd see him be a defensively responsible high forward who picked guys up on the backcheck. He was really good at that. There might be some correlation between the numbers."

Pascal Dupuis, who will have ACL knee surgery and is likely out for the rest of the season, was a top-line fit for Penguins captain Sidney Crosby, who so preferred him that he sought to keep him as a linemate even when Jarome Iginla arrived last season.

Finding wingers who fit with Crosby has proven a great challenge over the years, as his style - skilled grinder with speed and a backhand preference - does not easily fit with traditional scoring wingers. Few acquisitions by Pens GM Ray Shero have meshed instantly with Crosby, with Bill Guerin (2009) being the exception. Replacing Dupuis in this regard will provide a great challenge to Shero.
