Playing CareerEdit

Pascal started his career with the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. He played four seasons in the QMJHL, but was never drafted by an NHL club.

On August 18, 2000, he was signed by the Minnesota Wild. It took Pascal a year of development in the International Hockey League before he became a regular player in the NHL.

In Pascal's second full season, he scored 20 goals and 48 points while having a plus-minus rating of +17, however, in 2003–04, he was bothered by injuries and he was unable to improve on his totals from the previous year.

During the 2004-05 NHL lockout, Pascal played 8 games for HC Ajoie of the Swiss League.

When the NHL returned in 2005–06, he managed only 26 points in 67 games. After 48 games with the Wild in the 2006–07 season, Pascal was traded to the New York Rangers for Adam Hall on February 9, 2007.

On February 27, 2007, he was traded again, this time to the Atlanta Thrashers for Alex Bourret.

On February 9, 2008, Pascal was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins where he helped them to the 2008 Stanley Cup Finals. He won the Stanley Cup with Pittsburgh in 2009.

On December 11, 2008 (in his 461st game), Pascal scored his first NHL hat trick in a game against the New York Islanders.

On November 14, 2009, he earned his 100th career goal, an overtime game winner against the Boston Bruins.

On June 28, 2011, Pascal re-signed for 2 more years, keeping him through the 2012-2013 season.

On July 2, 2013, Pascal re-signed with the Penguins once again, this time for 4 more years which keeps him with Pittsburgh through the 2016-2017 season.
