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.

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.

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.

Brian Dumoulin made his NHL debut on Saturday.
