|Assets:||Is an excellent penalty-killer. Plays the game with tremendous energy and combativeness. Is versatile enough to play on either side of center, and can also fill out a scoring line. Can at times unleash a huge slap shot.|
|Flaws:||Needs to bury more of his chances around the goal area, since he tends to get a lot. Is too inconsistent on offense and even lacks a bit of offensive awareness at times. His exuberance can sometimes lead to bad penalties.|
|Career Potential:||Complementary energy winger with defensive ability.|

Pascal Dupuis gets it done without PPGs | 05/16/2013 12:10 PM
NewsPascal Dupuis is tied for the playoff lead with six goals entering Thursday night's action and unsurprisingly he doesn't have any on the power play.
ImpactHe's played one second of man advantage time for the Penguins in the playoffs, which is the lowest on the team, but that isn't anything new for him as he averaged just 48 seconds of power-play time during the regular season. He has scored 20 of his 175 career regular-season goals when his team has been up a man. Oddly enough, he nearly has as many goals when his team is on the penalty kill (15) and he scored a shorthanded marker in Game 1 against Ottawa. The bulk of his goals come while skating five-on-five though. "He's been one of the best even-strength goal-scorers in the league for quite some time now," coach Dan Bylsma said. Of course this raises the question: why doesn't he get more power-play opportunities in the first place? It seems to work for the Penguins though, so don't expect them to change it.
Pascal Dupuis pots 2, Pens rout Isles in Gm1 | 05/01/2013 10:20 PM
NewsPascal Dupuis tallied two goals as the Penguins routed the Islanders 5-0 in the first game of their first-round series on Wednesday night.
ImpactThe offensive onslaught was on for the Penguins in this one, and it began 3:30 in when rookie Beau Bennett scored on the power play. Dupuis, who had five goals against the Isles in the regular season, would follow 10 minutes later with his first, then scored 22 seconds after Kris Letang's marker early in the second period. Tanner Glass ended the scoring with his first career playoff goal. Evgeni Malkin, Jarome Iginla and Jussi Jokinen each had two assists apiece. The Isles caused the game to get a little chippy at the end, so fantasy owners get rewarded with 10 penalty minutes from Dupuis and Iginla. Douglas Murray also had 12 minutes. Pittsburgh played a little defense, too, with Mark Eaton recording a whopping eight blocked shots.

He'll turn 34 in April and is currently making $1.5 million.
Pascal Dupuis thriving - again - with Crosby | 02/18/2013 12:03 PM
NewsPascal Dupuis is playing well this season on the top line with Sidney Crosby.
ImpactIt's a situation that has worked out in the past and makes Dupuis, who had a goal Sunday, worth rostering in fantasy leagues. In 16 games, the 33-year-old has seven goals and 12 points. It helps to play with superstars as they draw most of the attention. Dupuis is coming off a career-high 59-point season. "We did it when Sid was healthy a few years ago," Dupuis said. "It seems like we're clicking again."

NewsPascal Dupuis scored a late goal for Pittsburgh in a 4-1 loss to the Islanders Tuesday.
ImpactDupuis finished off a passing play set up by Sidney Crosby late in the third period to break up Evgeni Nabokov's shutout, but the marker provided little impact otherwise. For as long as he lines up alongside Crosby, Dupuis should offer some value in fantasy leagues.
