Veteran winger agrees to two-way deal

The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed forward Philippe Dupuis to a one-year contract.
 
Dupuis’ contract is a two-way deal worth $600,000 at the NHL level.
 
Dupuis, 27, split the 2011-12 season between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League (AHL). Dupuis helped the Marlies advance to the 2012 Calder Cup Final, leading the team and ranking third among all AHL players with 14 points (4G-10A) in 17 playoff games. His 10 assists also tied for third in the AHL.
 
The 6-foot, 196-pound native of Laval, Quebec has played in 116 career NHL games with the Colorado Avalanche and Toronto Maple Leafs over parts of the last four seasons, notching six goals, 12 assists, 18 points and 62 penalty minutes. Dupuis’ best NHL season came with Colorado in ’10-11 when he established career highs in games played (74), goals (6), assists (11) and points (17).
 
Dupuis, who was originally drafted by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the fourth round (104th overall) of the 2003 NHL Draft, has amassed 71 goals, 82 assists and 153 points in 274 career AHL regular-season contests with the Syracuse Crunch, Lake Erie Monsters, and Toronto Marlies. Dupuis has reached double figures in goals all five years he has played in the AHL.
 
Dupuis played five seasons in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) with three teams between 2001-06 – the Hull/Gatineau Olympiques, Rouyn-Noranda Huskies and Moncton Wildcats. Dupuis helped his team capture QMJHL championships three times – back-to-back crowns with Hull/Gatineau in ’02-03 and ’03-04, and with Moncton in ’05-06.
