Minnesota Wild's Dupuis out four to six weeks with knee sprain
Minnesota Wild forward Pascal Dupuis will be out four to six weeks with a sprained left knee. Dupuis was hurt in the first period of Thursday’s game against Washington when he collided with Capitals defenceman Steve Eminger. Dupuis left the ice immediately and limped to the training room.
Dupuis, in his fifth year with the Wild, had 10 goals and 16 assists in 67 games last season. The team said it would not make a corresponding move and go with 21 players for the time being.
