Pittsburgh Penguins’ forward Pascal Dupuis, who suffered a torn ACL back on Dec. 23, is reportedly set for surgery on Feb. 12 – according to the team’s Twitter handle.

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.
