2008-09 Player Rewind...Phil Dupuis

For Monsters center Phil Dupuis, the 2008-09 season served as a breakout of sorts for the flashy French-Canadian forward. In his third season as a professional and second year with the Monsters, Dupuis led the Monsters in assists (29), points (46), shorthanded goals (2), shots (211) and in the plus/minus category with a +11. The 17 goals Dupuis registered were second only to captain Chris Durno, and the man known as “Dupe” to his teammates also led his club with 10 multi-point games.

By the end of the year, Dupuis’s hard work translated into head coach Joe Sacco naming him an alternate captain. But the highest individual accolade achieved by Dupuis this season was his NHL debut. Dupuis was one of 11 Monsters to play in their first NHL game this season, as he appeared in eight games with Lake Erie’s NHL affiliate, the Colorado Avalanche. In his eight-game stint with the Avs, Dupuis recorded four penalty minutes.
