Doctors have found proper medication that will allow Pascal Dupuis to play next season, team says

36 year old winger Pascal Dupuis has been cleared, the Penguins announced today. In a released statement GM Jim Rutherford said doctors have recommended a blood thinner medication that will allow Dupuis to play next season.
“The blood clot has dissolved, and the doctors have recommended a blood thinner medication that will allow him to play,” Rutherford said. “It’s a big step forward for Pascal, and we’re all excited for him.”
Dupuis was diagnosed with a blood clot on his lung November 19 and missed the rest of the 2014-15 season. It was the second blood clot Dupuis had suffered in a 10 month span.
After tearing his ACL on December 23, 2013 against the Ottawa Senators, Dupuis was diagnosed in January 2014 with a blood clot that was attributed to the flight home after the knee injury.
