Dumoulin (lower body) had two blocks and one hit in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Islanders in Game 2.
Dumoulin was thought to be a game-time decision after blocking a shot with his foot in the series opener, but he was right back in the lineup logging 23:43 of ice time, a total topped only by Kris Letang among Pittsburgh skaters. The 29-year-old Dumoulin had 14 points and a plus-18 rating in 41 regular-season games this season.
Dumoulin (lower body) is in the lineup Tuesday against the Islanders in Game 2.
Dumoulin blocked a shot with his foot in Game 1 and was a game-time decision for this one, but he's evidently no worse for the wear. He'll slot in next to Kris Letang on the team's top pairing and likely take on a significant workload after recording a whopping 29:22 of ice time in Game 1.
Dumoulin (lower body) will be a game-time call for Game 2 versus the Islanders on Tuesday, Pens Inside Scoop reports.
Dumoulin blocked a shot with his skate in Game 1 on Sunday but was able to finish the contest. The blueliner did take part in Tuesday's game-day skate, which could be an indication he is good to go, though fantasy players will need to wait until warmups. If Dumoulin does play, it figures to be on the top pairing along with Kris Letang, where he will almost certainly log more than 20 minutes of ice time.
Dumoulin (undisclosed) didn't participate in Monday's practice, Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Coach Mike Sullivan deemed Dumoulin's absence a "maintenance day," but the blueliner's status will nonetheless bear monitoring ahead of Tuesday's Game 2 against the Islanders. Dumoulin was laboring in the third period of Monday's Game 1 loss after taking a shot off his right foot, and Monday's absence was likely related to that foot injury.
Dumoulin scored a goal, blocked two shots and added two PIM in Thursday's 8-4 win over the Sabres.
Dumoulin gave the Penguins a 4-3 lead at 6:26 of the second period, and they didn't let the Sabres back in after that. The 29-year-old blueliner has 14 points through 40 contests this year. He's added a plus-18 rating, 12 PIM, 48 shots on net, 59 hits and 55 blocked shots as a top-four defenseman.
Dumoulin posted a secondary assist in Sunday's 1-0 win over the Bruins.
Dumoulin dumped the puck off to Sidney Crosby, who set up Jake Guentzel for the game's only goal -- a beatiful one-timer that went top shelf. April has been quite the productive month for Dumoulin, as he's registered a point in nine of the 13 games the Pens have played.
Dumoulin recorded an assist, three blocked shots and two shots on net in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Devils.
Dumoulin has two goals and three assists during a five-game point streak. The 29-year-old blueliner isn't known for lofty scoring numbers, as he has only nine points in 27 outings this year. He's added 42 hits, 41 blocked shots, 33 shots on goal and a plus-13 rating while working in the Penguins' top four on defense.
Dumoulin supplied an assist in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Rangers.
The American rearguard has been productive in the attacking zone, as evidenced by his three-game point streak comprised of one goal and two helpers. Dumoulin's best campaign was in 2018-19 when he cashed in on 23 points, so there's a relatively low ceiling when it comes to his offensive potential, but the Penguins and fantasy managers alike have to appreciate his willingness to check and block shots.
Dumoulin collected an assist in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Rangers.
Dumoulin was playing in just his second game since returning from a lower-body injury. The 29-year-old has exceeded 21 minutes of ice time in both of those contests -- he's not being eased back into action. The helper was his second points in nine appearances. Dumoulin's added 10 shots on net and 16 hits and should continue to hold down a role alongside Kris Letang on the Penguins' top pairing.
Dumoulin (lower body) has been activated off injured reserve, paving the way for him to return to the lineup for Saturday's game versus Philadelphia.
Dumoulin has been sidelined since late January with a lower-body injury, but it doesn't appear as though coach Mike Sullivan is planning on easing him back in against the Flyers, as the 29-year-old blueliner is expected to skate on Pittsburgh's top pairing Saturday. He picked up one helper in the first seven games of the campaign before suffering a long-term injury.
Dumoulin (lower body) won't be available against the Flyers on Thursday. Coach Mike Sullivan told reporters, "Brian Dumoulin and Evan Rodrigues (lower body) are skating with the team right now. They will not play tonight."
The fact that Dumoulin is skating with the team is certainly a step in the right direction, but the defender won't be ready in time for Thursday's contests. In order to suit up, Dumoulin will need to first be activated off injured reserve, which should be a clear indication he is ready to play.
Dumoulin (lower body) was on the ice in a regular jersey for Wednesday's practice session, Josh Getzoff of PensTV reports.
Dumoulin has been sidelined for the club's previous 14 contests due to his lower-body injury. If cleared to play versus the Flyers on Thursday, the 29-year-old Maine native should return to partnering with Kris Letang, which would likely see Mark Friedman bounced from the lineup. Whenever Dumoulin is cleared to play, he will need to be activated off injured reserve in order to suit up.
Dumoulin (lower body) was able to complete some individual skating Thursday.
While it's certainly a step in the right direction, the fact that Dumoulin isn't ready to join his teammates on the ice likely means he is still week-to-week at best. Once cleared to play, the 29-year-old Maine native will likely return to the top pairing with Kris Letang, which will raise questions about where to utilize rookie sensation Pierre-Olivier Joseph.
Dumoulin (lower body) is listed on injured reserve, per the NHL media site.
Considering Dumoulin was labeled week-to-week by the club and hasn't played since Jan 26 against the Bruins, his placement on IR shouldn't come as a surprise. At this point, the defensive stalwart hasn't begun skating with the team and likely won't be an option for at least another week or so.
Dumoulin (lower body) is considered week-to-week according to coach Mike Sullivan, Josh Yohe of The Athletic reports.
Based on the timeline provided by the club, Dumoulin figures to be out for at least the remainder of the club's road trip, though it no doubt could be longer. Fortunately for the Penguins, it appears John Marino (undisclosed) is expected to play against the Bruins on Thursday. Both Marino and Pierre-Olivier Joseph figure to see significant upticks in ice time with Dumoulin unavailable.
Dumoulin is being evaluated for a lower-body injury suffered in Tuesday's game versus the Bruins.
Dumoulin left the game after blocking a shot in the second period. His availability for Thursday in Boston is to be determined, but the Penguins are running very thin of defense. Expect more information prior to Thursday's contest.
Dumoulin exited Tuesday's contest versus the Bruins after blocking a shot, Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com reports.
Dumoulin was injured late in the second period and did not return to the bench for the third. It's another injury to the Penguins' blue line, which is already missing Mike Matheson (upper body), Marcus Pettersson (upper body), Juuso Riikola (upper body) and Zach Trotman (knee). Dumoulin will have until Thursday's rematch with the Bruins to get healthy -- if he can't play, Kevin Czuczman may enter the lineup.
Dumoulin recorded an assist in Monday's 3-1 win over the Canadiens in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers.
Dumoulin sprung Conor Sheary for an odd-man rush in the third period, and Sheary was able to find Jason Zucker for the goal. In the regular season, Dumoulin was limited to 28 games due to ankle surgery that cost him three months of playing time. He had eight points, 44 hits and a plus-17 rating, but expect his usage to be mostly defensive during the playoffs.
Dumoulin (ankle) will rejoin the action Tuesday versus the Senators, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Dumoulin's return will add a little firepower to the back end for Pittsburgh. While he's not traditionally a huge offensive threat, he did manage seven points through 23 games before lacerated tendons in his ankle sidelined him for three months. He's fairly well-versed on the defensive end and provides some hits and blocked shots, giving the blueliner value in some fantasy formats.
Dumoulin (ankle) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's clash with Ottawa.
Dumoulin paired up with Kris Letang at practice Monday, per Sam Kasan of Pens Inside Scoop, which is a good indication he will be back in action Tuesday. The blueliner may be hardpressed to get back over the 15-point mark for the fifth straight year given the Penguins have just 18 games remaining.
