RALEIGH, N.C. -- Pittsburgh Penguins coach Dan Bylsma says top-line forward Pascal Dupuis could miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.

Bylsma said Friday after the team's game-day skate that Dupuis will have surgery "in a couple of weeks" to repair his anterior cruciate ligament.

Bylsma says he has no timetable for Dupuis' return and it's "likely that it might" end his season.

Dupuis hurt his right knee in a loss at Ottawa on Monday when Senators defenceman Marc Methot hit Sidney Crosby, sending him into Dupuis.

He has seven goals and 13 assists in 39 games. Joe Vitalie will replace him on the top line.

Bylsma also says defenceman Brooks Orpik and forward Tanner Glass are scheduled to be activated from injured reserve before Friday night's game at Carolina.

Canucks recall Eriksson

VANCOUVER -- The Vancouver Canucks recalled goaltender Joacim Eriksson from the AHL Utica Comets on Friday.

Eriksson has played in 20 games with Utica this season, building a record of 8-10-1, with a .907 save percentage and a 2.77 goals-against average.

The 23-year-old signed with Vancouver as a free agent in June.

Gonchar placed on IR

DALLAS -- The Dallas Stars have put defenceman Sergei Gonchar on the injured list and activated Aaron Rome to take his place.

The 39-year-old Gonchar has been out with concussion-like symptoms since he was hit by a puck Dec. 21 against San Jose. He leads Dallas defencemen with 12 points (all assists) in 35 games.

Rome is in his second season with the Stars and has five assists in 30 games with Dallas. He has been out since sustaining an apparent leg injury Dec. 16 at Colorado.

Tlusty out for Canes

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Carolina Hurricanes forward Jiri Tlusty will miss two to three weeks after having his appendix removed.

The Hurricanes filled his spot by recalling forward Zach Boychuk from Charlotte of the AHL.

The moves were announced Friday, about nine hours before Carolina's game against the Eastern Conference-leading Pittsburgh Penguins.

The team says Tlusty underwent an emergency appendectomy on Tuesday.
