  • Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Dealing with knee injury

    Dumoulin clarified that he suffered a grade-3 MCL tear in his knee during Game 1 against the Rangers on May 3, telling reporters Tuesday, "I injured my MCL. It was a grade-3 tear. It happened on that disallowed goal. My knee hit the post and hyperextended."

    Dumoulin had yet to begin skating before the Penguins were bounced from the playoffs and probably would have been hard-pressed to return even if the team had advanced. While the defenseman's shutdown capabilities make him a crucial piece of Pittsburgh's blue line, his lack of offensive upside doesn't translate well to the fantasy arena.

  • Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Remains unavailable

    Dumoulin (lower body) still hasn't begun skating and will miss Wednesday's clash with the Rangers. Coach Mike Sullivan told reporters, "Dumo hasn't skated yet, but he's making progress off the ice."

    At this point, Dumoulin should probably be considered out indefinitely given his continued absence from on-ice activities. In the meantime, Mike Matheson should continue to see additional minutes while Mark Friedman will continue suiting up on the Penguins' third pairing.

  • Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Still not skating

    Dumoulin (lower body) has yet to resume skating and won't be available versus the Rangers for Game 4 on Monday, Mike DeFabo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    While the team continues to label Dumoulin day-to-day, the fact that he isn't skating yet doesn't seem to bode well for a Game 5 return Wednesday either. Without Dumoulin in the lineup, the Pens have paired up Mike Matheson with Kris Letang, which does seem to be putting all their offensive eggs in one basket. Mark Friedman has stepped into the lineup as well, though Nathan Beaulieu could also see some minutes depending on how long Dumoulin is out.

  • Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Missing second game

    Dumoulin (lower body) won't play in Saturday's Game 3 versus the Rangers, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Dumoulin is set to miss a second game with the injury he suffered in Tuesday's series opener. The 30-year-old's absence opens up a place in the lineup for either Mark Friedman or Nathan Beaulieu. Dumoulin's next chance to play is Monday in Game 4.

  • Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Out Thursday

    Dumoulin (lower body) will not be available against the Rangers on Thursday for Game 2.

    Dumoulin logged 36:35 of ice time in Tuesday's triple-overtime victory and sustained some sort of injury in the process. It's currently unclear how severe his injury is or if he's expected to return Saturday for Game 3. Mark Friedman is expected to take his place in Thursday's lineup.

  • Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Avoids injury

    Dumoulin (undisclosed) is "fine" after leaving Friday's game against Columbus, Wes Crosby of reports.

  • Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Exits Friday's game

    Dumoulin (undisclosed) left during the third period of Friday's win over Columbus and did not return. There was no update after the game, per Seth Rorabaugh of

    Dumoulin left early in Friday's victory, but he returned to log 19:34 of ice time. However, he didn't get a shift for the last eight-plus minutes of the contest. An update on his status should be available before the Penguins begin the postseason.

  • Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Adds apple in rout

    Dumoulin added an assist to complement a plus-3 rating in Saturday's 7-2 drubbing of the Red Wings.

    The veteran defenseman continues to be a fine "real life" option working in tandem with Kris Letang, who has matched his career high in points based on nine goals and 58 assists. But even though Dumoulin is the stay-at-home blueliner, his heavy ice time (21:52 on average) affords him plenty of chances to sprinkle the box score. He's up to three goals, 15 assists, 86 hits and 133 blocked shots to complement a robust plus-25 rating.

  • Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Back in action

    Dumoulin (illness) is in the lineup Sunday against the Hurricanes.

    Dumoulin missed a single contest (Friday against Vegas) with the illness, but he's good to go Sunday. With just one point in his last 16 games, his return doesn't figure to make much of a fantasy impact.

  • Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Out Friday

    Dumoulin (Illness) is not available for Friday's game against Vegas.

  • Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: On ice for warmups

    Dumoulin (undisclosed) took the ice for warmups, indicating he's likely to return Tuesday versus the Capitals, Wes Crosby of reports.

    Dumoulin was considered a game-time decision entering Tuesday, but all signs point to him playing. He won't end up missing any games with the injury he sustained Sunday versus the Kings.

  • Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Game-time decision against Caps

    Dumoulin will be a game-time call versus Washington on Tuesday with "bumps and bruises" according to coach Mike Sullivan, Pens Inside Scoop reports.

    Dumoulin missed part of the first period against the Kings on Sunday after blocking a shot with his ankle, which could be a factor in his potential absence. With Chad Ruhwedel entering the league's COVID-19 protocols, Mark Friedman figures to be a lock for the lineup Tuesday while recent taxi-squad addition Juuso Riikola could play if Dumoulin can't.

  • Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Three points in Friday's win

    Dumoulin scored a goal and added two assists in Friday's 5-2 win over the Blue Jackets.

    He opened the scoring just 32 seconds into the first period, then notched his helpers in the third period as the Penguins put the game away. Dumoulin equaled his production from his prior eight games combined with this performance, and on the season the veteran blueliner has only three goals and 13 points through 35 contests.

  • Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Plucks apple in loss

    Dumoulin posted an assist in Thursday's 6-2 loss to the Kings.

    Dumoulin's productive run continued Thursday, as he's now collected a goal and three assists in his last six outings. The 30-year-old defenseman typically isn't one for big scoring numbers. He's at 10 points, 37 shots on net, 62 blocked shots, 30 hits and a plus-5 rating in 31 appearances as the more defensive half of a pairing with Kris Letang.

    Dumoulin recorded two assists, two shots on net, a pair of blocked shots and a plus-4 rating in Monday's 6-1 win over the Kraken.

    With three assists in the last two games, Dumoulin has started to show some life on offense, though the contests were against the struggling Canucks and inconsistent Kraken. The 30-year-old defenseman is up to five helpers, 25 shots on net, 38 blocked shots, 23 hits and a minus-1 rating in 20 outings.

  • Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Will link up with team on road

    Dumoulin (COVID-19) is expected to join the Penguins in Washington ahead of Sunday's game versus the Capitals, the Associated Press reports.

    Dumoulin skated with a few teammates in Pittsburgh on Saturday, so there's a chance he could be available for Sunday night's matchup with Washington. The 30-year-old blueliner has been sidelined since testing positive for COVID-19 on Nov. 3.

  • Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Tests positive for COVID-19

    Dumoulin is asymptomatic after testing positive for COVID-19, the Penguins announced Wednesday.

    Even if Dumoulin avoids any symptoms, he should still be expected to miss the next 10 days, which means he will be on the shelf for at least the next four games. Fortunately for Pittsburgh, it appears Kris Letang (not injury related) is nearing a return to action and could slot into the lineup for Dumoulin.
