Pittsburgh Penguins’ forward Pascal Dupuis reportedly had successful surgery to repair his torn ACL Wednesday – according to the team’s website.
Dupuis, 34, will miss the rest of the season.
Skating into the offensive zone in a game against the Ottawa Senators on Dec. 23, Dupuis collided awkwardly with captain Sidney Crosby and crashed into the boards. Displaying obvious pain in his knee area, Dupuis was helped off the ice by teammates’ Chris Kunitz and Matt Niskanen.
The incident occurred on his first shift of the game, and he failed to return.
In 39 contests, Dupuis recorded 20 points (7G, 13A) and skated to a plus-6 rating.
