Ross Lupaschuk (born January 19, 1981 in Edmonton, Alberta) is a Canadian ice hockey defenseman. He currently plays for Mora IK of the Allsvenskan.


Playing career

He played three games for the Pittsburgh Penguins of the National Hockey League (NHL) and he has played in Europe since 2005.

Lupaschuk played his junior-level hockey in the Western Hockey League (WHL) for five seasons with the Lethbridge Hurricanes, Prince Albert Raiders and Red Deer Rebels. He was traded from the Raiders to the Rebels in 2001 in time to play for the Rebels during their 2001 Memorial Cup win. While with the Raiders, he was selected in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft by the Washington Capitals in the second round, 34th overall. Before turning professional, his playing rights were traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins. He played four seasons in the Penguins organization, primarily for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins of the American Hockey League, except for three games with the NHL Penguins in 2002–03. As a restricted free agent in 2005, Lupaschuk elected not to re-sign with the Penguins for the upcoming season and instead opted for Mora IK, in Sweden. The following year he played for Malmö Redhawks, also in Sweden, but left the team during the season for Kärpät, in Finland. In 2007, he transferred to Avangard Omsk Oblast of the Russian league. In 2008, he joined the HC Sibir Novosibirsk of the Kontinental Hockey League after a tryout with the Anaheim Ducks, played there between 19 January 2009 and signed on 22 January 2009 by Mora IK.
