From the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review’s Rob Rossi:
Dupuis has agreed to a two-year contract to remain with the Penguins, sources told the Tribune-Review. The deal, which will be announced this afternoon, is worth $3 million total — meaning Dupuis will count $1.5 million against the salary cap each of the next two seasons.
Dupuis, 32, counted $1.4 million against the cap each of the previous three seasons. Over that span, he produced 47 goals over that span — including 35 the last two years, missing only two games over that period.
With Dupuis getting only a slight raise, the Penguins are committed to approximately $57 million toward NHL contracts for next season, when the salary cap will be $64.3 million.
