Kraken's Brian Dumoulin: Signs with Kraken
Dumoulin signed a two-year, $6.3 million contract with Seattle on Saturday, according to PuckPedia.
Dumoulin had spent his entire 10-year NHL career with the Penguins. He scored one goal and added 24 assists in 82 regular-season games in 2022-23. Dumoulin will likely play in a bottom-four capacity for the Kraken next season.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Posts two assists
Dumoulin posted two assists and one shot in the Penguins' 4-1 win over the Wild on Thursday.
Dumoulin picked up helpers on goals by Kris Letang and Jeff Carter. This gives the American defenceman points in four of his last five games with six points in that span. On the season, Dumoulin has one goal and 25 points in 79 games.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Two helpers in win
Dumoulin logged a pair of assists in Sunday's 4-2 victory over the Flyers.
Dumoulin grabbed his first helper on Rickard Rakell's opening tally in the first period before recording a second assist on Ryan Poehling's empty-net goal in the third. Dumoulin isn't typically known for his offensive production, but he now has assists in three straight contests. The 31-year-old blueliner is up to 23 points (one goal, 22 assists) with a minus-2 rating in 77 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Provides helper Wednesday
Dumoulin notched an assist, four shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Avalanche.
Dumoulin set up the second of Jeff Carter's two goals in the game. The helper was Dumoulin's fourth over 11 outings in March, but he's also gone minus-3 with 24 hits and 13 blocked shots. The 31-year-old defenseman doesn't add much offense -- he's at 19 points through 71 contests, which makes this his second-highest scoring campaign. He's added 70 shots on net, 114 hits, 121 blocked shots and a minus-5 rating in a top-four role.... See More ... See Less

Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Riding three-game point streak
Dumoulin enters the Penguins' bye week on a three-game point streak.
Dumoulin is not exactly known for his offensive upside, having reached the 20-point mark just once in his NHL career. The 31-year-old defenseman has yet to score a goal this season and will likely be hard-pressed to extend his point streak when the Penguins return to action versus Colorado on Feb. 7.... See More ...

Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Records helper Tuesday
Dumoulin registered an assist versus the Blue Jackets on Tuesday.
Dumoulin has never been known for his offensive acumen, as evident by the fact that he has yet to score this season and has just eight shots in his last 18 contests. The veteran defenseman has reached the 20-point mark just once in his eight-year NHL career and probably shouldn't be expected to do so this season either.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Back at it
Dumoulin (knee) practiced Thursday, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Dumoulin missed the entirety of Pittsburgh's first-round playoff loss to the Rangers last year with a knee injury, but his presence on the ice Thursday suggests he's made a full recovery. The 31-year-old blueliner tallied 18 points and 139 blocks through 76 regular-season appearances last season.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Dealing with knee injury
Dumoulin clarified that he suffered a grade-3 MCL tear in his knee during Game 1 against the Rangers on May 3, telling reporters Tuesday, "I injured my MCL. It was a grade-3 tear. It happened on that disallowed goal. My knee hit the post and hyperextended."
Dumoulin had yet to begin skating before the Penguins were bounced from the playoffs and probably would have been hard-pressed to return even if the team had advanced. While the defenseman's shutdown capabilities make him a crucial piece of Pittsburgh's blue line, his lack of offensive upside doesn't translate well to the fantasy arena.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Remains unavailable
Dumoulin (lower body) still hasn't begun skating and will miss Wednesday's clash with the Rangers. Coach Mike Sullivan told reporters, "Dumo hasn't skated yet, but he's making progress off the ice."
At this point, Dumoulin should probably be considered out indefinitely given his continued absence from on-ice activities. In the meantime, Mike Matheson should continue to see additional minutes while Mark Friedman will continue suiting up on the Penguins' third pairing.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Still not skating
Dumoulin (lower body) has yet to resume skating and won't be available versus the Rangers for Game 4 on Monday, Mike DeFabo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
While the team continues to label Dumoulin day-to-day, the fact that he isn't skating yet doesn't seem to bode well for a Game 5 return Wednesday either. Without Dumoulin in the lineup, the Pens have paired up Mike Matheson with Kris Letang, which does seem to be putting all their offensive eggs in one basket. Mark Friedman has stepped into the lineup as well, though Nathan Beaulieu could also see some minutes depending on how long Dumoulin is out.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Missing second game
Dumoulin (lower body) won't play in Saturday's Game 3 versus the Rangers, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Dumoulin is set to miss a second game with the injury he suffered in Tuesday's series opener. The 30-year-old's absence opens up a place in the lineup for either Mark Friedman or Nathan Beaulieu. Dumoulin's next chance to play is Monday in Game 4.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Out Thursday
Dumoulin (lower body) will not be available against the Rangers on Thursday for Game 2.
Dumoulin logged 36:35 of ice time in Tuesday's triple-overtime victory and sustained some sort of injury in the process. It's currently unclear how severe his injury is or if he's expected to return Saturday for Game 3. Mark Friedman is expected to take his place in Thursday's lineup.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Avoids injury
Dumoulin (undisclosed) is "fine" after leaving Friday's game against Columbus, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.

Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Adds apple in rout
Dumoulin added an assist to complement a plus-3 rating in Saturday's 7-2 drubbing of the Red Wings.
The veteran defenseman continues to be a fine "real life" option working in tandem with Kris Letang, who has matched his career high in points based on nine goals and 58 assists. But even though Dumoulin is the stay-at-home blueliner, his heavy ice time (21:52 on average) affords him plenty of chances to sprinkle the box score. He's up to three goals, 15 assists, 86 hits and 133 blocked shots to complement a robust plus-25 rating.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Back in action
Dumoulin (illness) is in the lineup Sunday against the Hurricanes.
Dumoulin missed a single contest (Friday against Vegas) with the illness, but he's good to go Sunday. With just one point in his last 16 games, his return doesn't figure to make much of a fantasy impact.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Out Friday
Dumoulin (Illness) is not available for Friday's game against Vegas.
Dumoulin will miss his first game since Nov. 13. The veteran blueliner is averaging 22:04 of ice time with 15 points through 53 games. Mark Friedman will suit up in his absence.... See More ... See Less

Dumoulin (undisclosed) took the ice for warmups, indicating he's likely to return Tuesday versus the Capitals, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.
Dumoulin was considered a game-time decision entering Tuesday, but all signs point to him playing. He won't end up missing any games with the injury he sustained Sunday versus the Kings.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Game-time decision against Caps
Dumoulin will be a game-time call versus Washington on Tuesday with "bumps and bruises" according to coach Mike Sullivan, Pens Inside Scoop reports.
Dumoulin missed part of the first period against the Kings on Sunday after blocking a shot with his ankle, which could be a factor in his potential absence. With Chad Ruhwedel entering the league's COVID-19 protocols, Mark Friedman figures to be a lock for the lineup Tuesday while recent taxi-squad addition Juuso Riikola could play if Dumoulin can't....
