Brian Dumoulin scored his first career NHL goal on Monday.

It was Dumoulin's 10th career game. He fired a shot that deflected off of a Tampa Bay Lightning player before heading into the net. "That first one is always exciting," Dumoulin said. "It doesn't matter how it goes in. Just the fact that it went in, that's the biggest part. Getting the win and playing as well as we did was just as good as scoring."

Brian Dumoulin made his seasonal debut on Thursday in a loss to the Canucks.

Dumoulin partnered with Paul Martin as the Penguins were shut out 3-0. "Being my first game, there was a little nerves in the first period, especially my first shift," Dumoulin said. "[Martin] talks a lot and is so calm with the puck. He helps me out when I’m out there and it kind of settles me down a bit. He always talking. He always back hard for pucks. He makes the right plays. I just try to read off him and emulate him." Dumoulin had 10 points in 22 games for the Baby Pens in the AHL.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have sent Brian Dumoulin to the minors.

Dumoulin played well in training camp but it was not meant to be despite the injuries on the Penguins blueline. Dumoulin should see some playing time in the NHL as the Penguins will recall him when there are injuries.
Oct 5 - 10:09 AM

Brian Dumoulin has played well in training camp and could be in the opening night lineup due to injuries.

Dumoulin played in the NHL last season, picking up an assist in six games. The 23-year-old is not a big scorer so we suggest steering clear of him in fantasy pools at this time.
Oct 4 - 9:36 AM

Brian Dumoulin is week-to-week with a leg injury suffered on January 31 in the minors.

Dumoulin has played in six NHL games this season as the Penguins had a slew of injuries on the blueline but he has struggled in the minors. He will not be recalled unless the Penguins run into similar problems as occurred in December when five regulars were out of action.
Feb 9 - 8:49 AM

Brian Dumoulin made his NHL debut on Saturday.

The defenseman was recalled early in the week when Brooks Orpik was injured and got into the lineup due to the injury to Kris Letang. He saw 18:10 minutes of action as the Penguins were down to five defensemen when Deryk Engelland was thrown out of the game with a match penalty. He has no fantasy value.

Look for the Pittsburgh Penguins to recall Brian Dumoulin Monday.

The Penguins lost Brooks Orpik on the weekend and are already missing Rob Scuderi and Paul Martin on their blueline so they are going deep into their minor leagues.

The injury to Brian Dumoulin is to his upper body.

It was reported earlier as a lower body injury. Dumoulin is in a battle for the final spot on the blueline but the injury, which is expected to keep him out of action for a week, will not help his cause.

Brian Dumoulin is expected to miss a week due to a lower-body injury.

Dumoulin is competing for a spot on the Penguins' blueline, although as things stand it would be an uphill battle for him. Pittsburgh has seven defensemen signed to one-way contracts, not including Simon Despres, who played in 33 NHL games last season.

Brian Dumoulin had two points, but Wilkes-Barre/Scranton lost to Albany on Wednesday night 6-3.
