Dupuis was injured early in Monday's contest towards the Ottawa Senators when Marc Methot hip-checked Sidney Crosby into Dupuis.
For the Penguins, it's a large loss for the crew's scoring depth and an efficient linemate for Crosby. Dupuis has 20 points in 39 games this season and has been a stable veteran for the crew over the past seven seasons. Dupuis has averaged practically 18 minutes of ice time per sport as well.
Additionally, at 34 years outdated, you have to marvel how a lot a significant damage like this one will influence Dupuis' career. He's a veteran of 837 video games and has posted 394 factors within the NHL.
