02:44 PM ET 01.20 | The Pittsburgh Penguins and their fans were holding out the slimmest hopes that Pascal Dupuis would return this season after suffering a torn ACL in December. The team announced Monday morning that Dupuis is set to have ACL surgery and miss the rest of the season. According to the team, surgery on his ACL will be Feb. 12. Considering that it takes around a year to recover from an ACL injury, this pretty much ends Dupuis' season prematurely. Pittsburgh still has Dupuis under contract for the next three years, as he inked a 4-year, $15 million contract in the offseason. The Pens will now look to the trade market to try and find Dupuis' replacement for the rest of the season, as GM Ray Shero noted that the injury would have been even more devastating had it happened after the deadline in March.
