Penguins Re-Sign Forward Pascal Dupuis to a Four-Year Contract



The Pittsburgh Penguins have re-signed forward Pascal Dupuis to a four-year contract, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Ray Shero.

The deal runs through the 2016-17 campaign, and has an average annual value of $3.75 million.

Dupuis, 34, was one of the Penguins’ top offensive threats in 2012-13, ranking third on the team in both goals (20) and points (t-38), while placing first with 140 shots and a plus-31 rating. Dupuis’ plus-31 rating led the NHL, making him the first Penguins player to accomplish that feat since Ron Francis in 1994-95. His 17 even-strength goals tied for sixth-most in the NHL.

The 6-foot-1, 205-pound Dupuis reached the 20-goal mark for the second-straight year and third time overall in ’12-13. He has recorded four of his top-five highest point totals over the past four seasons.
