RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Pittsburgh Penguins coach Dan Bylsma says top-line forward Pascal Dupuis could miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.

Bylsma said Friday after the team’s game-day skate that Dupuis will have surgery “in a couple of weeks” to repair his anterior cruciate ligament.

Bylsma says he has no timetable for Dupuis’ return and it’s “likely that it might” end his season.

Dupuis hurt his right knee in a loss at Ottawa on Monday when Senators defenseman Marc Methot hit Sidney Crosby, sending him into Dupuis.

He has seven goals and 13 assists in 39 games. Joe Vitalie will replace him on the top line.

Bylsma also says defenseman Brooks Orpik and forward Tanner Glass are scheduled to be activated from injured reserve before Friday night’s game at Carolina.
