Pittsburgh, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Pittsburgh Penguins announced Monday that forward Pascal Dupuis will have surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament while the NHL is on its Olympic break.

Dupuis is expected to have the procedure on Feb. 12, days after several teammates, including Team Canada captain Sidney Crosby, will head overseas to try to win the gold in Sochi.

The 34-year-old Dupuis suffered the season-ending injury in the first period of a 5-0 loss to the Ottawa Senators on Dec. 23, when he collided with Crosby and was forced to leave the contest.

Dupuis, who signed a four-year, $15 million contract in the summer, had seven goals and 13 assists in 39 games prior to the injury.
