Pens forward Pascal Dupuis will not play tonight against the Edmonton Oilers.

Dupuis was taken to the hospital as a precaution prior to the game after experiencing symptoms that may or may not be related to his blood clot history.

“We’ve said all along that Pascal’s health is the highest priority,” general manager Jim Rutherford said. “We will take every precaution necessary to ensure he is in good health.”

The team will have no further comment at this time.
