Pascal Dupuis (born April 7, 1979 in Laval, Quebec) is a Canadian professional ice hockey left winger who currently plays for the Pittsburgh Penguins of the National Hockey League (NHL).
Pascal Dupuis started his career with the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. He played four seasons in the QMJHL, but was never drafted by an NHL club. On 18 August 2000, he was signed by the Minnesota Wild. It took Dupuis a year of development in the International Hockey League before he became a regular player in the NHL. In his second full season, he scored 20 goals and 48 points while having a plus-minus rating of +17. However, in 2003–04, he was bothered by injuries and he was unable to improve on his totals from the previous year.
During the 2004–05 NHL lockout, Dupuis played 8 games for HC Ajoie of the Swiss League.
When the NHL returned in 2005–06, Dupuis managed only 26 points in 67 games. After 48 games with the Wild in the 2006–07 season, he was traded to the New York Rangers for Adam Hall in February 2007. On February 27, 2007, he was traded again, this time to the Atlanta Thrashers for Alex Bourret. On February 26, 2008, he was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins, where he helped them to the 2008 Stanley Cup Finals. On July 1, 2008 he re-signed with the Penguins on a three year contract. He won the Stanley Cup with Pittsburgh in 2009.
On December 11, 2008, in his 461st game, Dupuis scored his first NHL hat trick in a game against the New York Islanders. On November 14, 2009, he earned his 100th career goal, an overtime game winner against the Boston Bruins.
