News: Dupuis said Sunday that he's "looking ahead" in his recovery from the blood clot in his lung that ended his season in November, Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. "It's been five months. It's behind me right now," Dupuis said. "Obviously I still have some more testing to do. I'm still on some blood thinners right now but I'm looking ahead right now."
Impact: The blood clot clouds the future of the 36-year-old Dupuis, but it's at least encouraging to see him express a positive attitude about playing in 2015-16. The Penguins will wait and see how he progresses over the summer with his condition before determining if he'll be ready to go for training camp. Dupuis is under contract with the squad for two more seasons at a cap hit of $3.75 million.

News: Dupuis, who has not played since Nov. 15 after being diagnosed a blood clot in his lung, will not play again this season, NHL.com reports.
Impact: "Based on the doctor's report I don't believe we'll see Pascal this year, and that's a big loss," GM Rutherford said Monday. "He's not going to be cleared to play until June." While Dupuis, who finished with 11 points in 16 games this season, won't play again this season, Rutherford expressed optimism with regard to the veteran forward's playing prospects for the 2015-16 campaign, saying: "I do feel very confident that (Dupuis) will return to the team next year."
