Many people are impressed with the play of Brian Dumoulin in the playoffs.

That's what some points will do for you. Dumoulin has always been a solid defender but he had only 18 points in 80 games this season, not anything that would get you recognized. But the playoffs have been a different story as he had a goal and six points in the opening round. "He was playing so well in the playoffs last year, I called him and joked, ‘How do you feel about never being on the power play?’" his junior coach Sean Tremblay said. "He said, ‘We have other guys who do that. I’m here to defend and move pucks. It’s like you used to tell me — defend and distribute, and you’ll be worth your weight in gold.’ He just a guy who knows who he is." GM Jim Rutherford made sure that Dumoulin was part of the Jordan Staal deal to Carolina in 2012 instead of a second round pick and he has never regretted the move.

Brian Dumoulin scored his first of the playoffs Sunday.

Dumoulin scored the fourth Penguins goal and it tied an NHL record as the Penguins scored twice in five seconds. After a five goal, 18 point performance in 80 regular season games, Dumoulin has three points in three playoff games thus far. He averages a goal every 35 games during the regular season but improves that to one in 16 during the playoffs.

Brian Dumoulin had two assists in Pittsburgh's 7-0 win against the Flyers in Game 1 on Wednesday.

Dumoulin isn't one of the Penguins' main offensive contributors as he finished the 2017-18 campaign with five goals and 18 points in 80 contests. Don't expect him to have more multi-point games in the 2018 playoffs, but he should still chip in occasionally. In 2017, he finished with a goal and six points in 25 playoff contests.

Brian Dumoulin suffered a concussion during Tuesday's game.

Dumoulin was struck by a high hit from Philadelphia's Claude Giroux on Tuesday. The Penguins are terming Dumoulin as day-to-day, but concussions tend to be hard to gauge so we'll have to wait and see how his recovery goes.

He has posted 50 hits with 69 blocked shots through 39 contests to help fantasy owners in deeper formats.

Keep an eye on whether Brian Duoulin will suit up Saturday night against Nashville.
