I think we'd be better off dressing him.
I wouldn't mind seeing a bottom six of

Morrow-Jokinen-Kennedy
Cooke-Sutter-Adams/Vitale

though you do lose some grit by sitting one of Vitale or Adams. I just like that third line. Kennedy is obviously a far cry from Dupuis at this point, but it kind of recreates a line that had a lot of success in the few games it was together. And having Kennedy on the line mitigates some of the speed concerns of Morrow.
