Brian Joseph Dumoulin (born September 6, 1991) is an American professional ice hockey defenseman. He is currently playing with the Pittsburgh Penguins of the National Hockey League (NHL). Dumoulin was selected by the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2nd round (51st overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career[edit]

Dumoulin played hockey for Biddeford High School before playing for the Boston College Eagles men's ice hockey team which competed in the NCAA's Division I in the Hockey East conference.[1] Brian won the 2012 National Championship in Tampa, Florida in April 2012.

Dumoulin debuted with the Penguins in 2013.

On April 10, 2012, the Carolina Hurricanes, who had drafted him 51st overall in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, signed Dumoulin to an entry-level contract.[2] On June 22, 2012, Dumoulin was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins, along with Brandon Sutter and the 8th overall selection (Derrick Pouliot) in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, for center Jordan Staal.[3]

In the 2013–14 season, Dumoulin made his NHL debut in a December 14, 2013 game against the Detroit Red Wings.[4] He scored his first NHL point on an assist in a game on December 16, 2013, against netminder Jonathan Bernier of the Toronto Maple Leafs.[5]

During the 2014–15 season, Dumoulin scored his first NHL goal against Evgeni Nabokov of the Tampa Bay Lightning, on December 15, 2014.[6] He signed a two year contract with the Penguins on July 9, 2015.[7]

During the 2015-16 season, Dumoulin scored his first NHL playoff goal against Andrei Vasilevskiy of the Tampa Bay Lightning, on May 22, 2016. Dumoulin scored his second NHL playoff goal in the 2016 Stanley Cup Finals clinching game 6 against the San Jose Sharks, on June 12, 2016.[8] With a 3–1 win over the San Jose Sharks, Biddeford-born Dumoulin became the first Maine-born NHL player to hoist the Stanley Cup.[9]

During the 2016–17 season, Dumoulin sustained a broken jaw which kept him out of any games for several weeks.[10] On April 4, 2017, Dumolin scored his first goal in 151 regular season games against Sergei Bobrovsky of the Columbus Blue Jackets in a 4–1 win.[11] He won his second Stanley Cup with the Penguins on June 11, 2017.[12]

On July 24, 2017, the Penguins re-signed Dumoulin to a six-year, $24.6 million contract worth $4.1 million annually.[13]
