New York Rangers
Pascal Dupuis started his career with the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. He played four seasons in the QMJHL, but was never drafted by an NHL club. On 18 August 2000, he was signed by the Minnesota Wild. It took Dupuis a year of development in the International Hockey League before he became a regular player in the NHL. In his second full season, he scored 20 goals and 48 points while having a plus-minus rating of +17. However, in 2003–04, he was bothered by injuries and he was unable to improve on his totals from the previous year.
When the NHL returned in 2005–06, Dupuis managed only 26 points in 67 games. After 48 games with the Wild in the 2006–07 season, he was traded to the New York Rangers for Adam Hall on February 9, 2007. On February 27, 2007, he was traded again, this time to the Atlanta Thrashers for Alex Bourret. On February 9, 2008, he was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins, where he helped them to the 2008 Stanley Cup Finals. He won the Stanley Cup with Pittsburgh in 2009. On June 28, 2011, he re-signed for 2 more years, keeping him through the 2012-2013 season. On July 2, 2013, he re-signed with the Penguins once again, this time for 4 more years, thus keeping him with Pittsburgh through the 2016-2017 season.
On December 11, 2008, in his 461st game, Dupuis scored his first NHL hat trick in a game against the New York Islanders. On November 14, 2009, he earned his 100th career goal, an overtime game winner against the Boston Bruins.
