  • Dupuis (illness) is exempt from the NHL Expansion Draft, Craig Custance of ESPN reports. The move, made in agreement with the NHLPA, prevents teams from using their LTIR players in order to reach the minimum exposure requirements. Super Duper has already announced his retirement due to blood clots and will no doubt go down as one of the most beloved Penguins in recent memory.

  • Dupuis will no longer play hockey because of a medical condition related to blood clots. Dupuis was originally diagnosed with a blood clot in Jan. 2014 after suffering torn ligaments in his knee, and was then prescribed blood thinners for six months while recovering from knee surgery. Doctors then discovered a blood clot in Dupuis' lung in Nov. 2014, which ultimately forced the 36-year-old forward to miss the remainder of the 2014-15 campaign. Dupuis was cleared to take contact in June, and made his season debut with the Penguins on Oct. 22. Unfortunately, Dupuis had to be removed from several games this season, and was even taken to the hospital on one occasion as a precautionary measure due to symptoms related to his medical condition. Dr. Dharmesh Vyas, Pittsburgh's team physician, told reporters Tuesday "Despite playing on a medical protocol that has worked for other players in the NHL, we feel that the risk of Pascal playing with his condition and the side effects of the tests to monitor him are just not in the best interest of his long-term health." It's an unfortunate end to a phenomenal career in which Dupuis racked up 409 points (190 goals, 219 assists) in 871 NHL games over 15 seasons with the Wild, Rangers, Thrashers, and Penguins. He was also a member of Pittsburgh's 2009 Stanley Cup championship team. Dupuis will continue to receive the salary he is owed for the last two years of his contract, but will be placed on long-term injured reserve in order to free up cap space and a spot on Pittsburgh's 23-man roster.
