Dumoulin will suit up against the Islanders on Wednesday, Michelle Crechiolo of Pens Inside Scoop reports.

Dumoulin was benched Saturday after struggling defensively in his last several games, including a minus-4 night Nov. 16 against the Capitals. Although the blueliner will not be called upon to do a lot in terms of scoring, the Pens need him to be solid defensively in order to free up whoever he's paired with -- usually Kris Letang or Trevor Daley -- to contribute in the offensive zone.
