Dupuis, 34, will likely miss the rest of the 2013-14 campaign, and hopefully he can return for the start of next season. Pens’ forward Beau Bennett is in line to permanently skate alongside Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz on the top-line – barring a trade.
In 39 games this season, Dupuis collected 27 points (7G, 13A) and skated to a plus-6 rating.
