Jan 5 - 6:45 PM

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. Dumoulin isn't a factor in standard fantasy leagues, but his absence will be felt by the Penguins, who had been giving him an average of 20:35 minutes per game.

Brian Dumoulin opened the scoring in Friday's 2-1 loss at Carolina, his second tally of the season.

It's a long night for the Pens when the light-scoring rearguard accounts for the only marker of the evening. He was feeling frisky at the offensive end, posting three shots on goal while also delivering four hits and three blocked shots. 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.

He left the ice a little woozy Friday night against the Capitals but returned to the game. Not sure if the Penguins' defenseman is injured but it would be prudent to monitor the situation if you rely on Dumoulin.

Brian Dumoulin sustained a broken hand in the first round of the playoffs and it kept re-breaking during Pittsburgh's run to a second straight Stanley Cup title.

"It was tough to play with it, but obviously everybody had injuries," Dumoulin said. "It's all healed up now. They were deciding on surgery or not at the end of the season, but doctors saw a little bit of healing. We gave it about three weeks, and I kind of have been testing it out the last week. I've skated, and there have been no problems. I'm happy about it." Dumoulin didn't miss any time because of the injury and led the Penguins in average ice time per game (21:59) during the postseason. He agreed to a six-year contract on Monday to avoid salary arbitration.

Brian Dumoulin has become one of the top Pittsburgh defensemen in the playoffs.

He might even be the best with the absence of Kris Letang from the lineup. Dumoulin has only a goal and three points in 19 games so his fantasy value is severely limited but he has been a strong presence on the Penguins blueline. We do not suggest drafting him next season in traditional pools but he does help out the Penguins netminders by his solid defensive play.
