Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Produces helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Will play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Game-time call Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Practicing with full contact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dumoulin (ankle) sported a full-contact jersey during Thursday's practice.

Dumoulin remains without a specific target date for his return, but this marks a significant step toward the blueliner's first action since Nov. 30. Per Dave Molinari of DKPittsburghSports.com, Dumoulin participated on the top penalty-killing unit Thursday as well, suggesting his return may be just around the corner.

Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Begins skating again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dumoulin (ankle) has started skating as he works his way back from surgery. Coach Mike Sullivan told reporters, "(Dumoulin is) making progress. He's skated the last couple of days. He's tracking the right way and the fact that he's on the ice right now is real encouraging."

Dumoulin remains without a specific timeline to return to the lineup, but at least he has gotten back on the ice. If the team doesn't expect the blueliner back soon, general manager Jim Rutherford could decide to go after another defenseman prior to Monday's trade deadline. With John Marino (face) sidelined as well, the Pens will continue to utilize Jack Johnson on the top pairing with Kris Letang.

Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Still no timeline for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Mike Sullivan said there is not timetable for Dumoulin (ankle) to return to the lineup, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Dumoulin was injured on Nov. 30 and underwent ankle surgery the next day. He was initially given a minimum eight-week recovery period, but it seems like it will take the defenseman longer than that to get back into action. He's nearing the seven-week mark in his absence so far, but Dumoulin has yet to resume skating. Expect Jack Johnson to continue to fill the void alongside Kris Letang on the Penguins' top pairing.

Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Undergoes ankle surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dumoulin (ankle) had surgery to repair lacerated tendons in his left ankle Sunday and is expected to be out for a minimum of eight weeks.

With Dumoulin sidelined, look for Chad Ruhwedel to draw into the lineup or for the team to recall a defenseman from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Leaves after first shift
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dumoulin (undisclosed) departed Saturday's game versus St. Louis less than a minute into the first period.

Dumoulin played 35 seconds before needing to be helped down the tunnel by two teammates. No word on the specifics of his injury, but the top-pairing defenseman appears in danger of missing more than Saturday's contest. Pittsburgh hosts the Blues on Wednesday in the second half of a home-and-home series.

Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Suiting up Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dumoulin (personal) will be in the lineup for Monday's game in Boston.

The Penguins announced that Dumoulin welcomed a new baby boy into the world prior to Monday's game but he'll be good to go for the tilt against the Bruins. He'll assume his usual role on the top pair next to Kris Letang.

Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Status uncertain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dumoulin is expecting the birth of his child, raising doubts regarding his availability against Boston on Monday, Dave Molinari of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Perhaps if the Penguins were playing at home, the team might have more clarity on Dumoulin's status, but it figures to be a matter of getting him to Boston in time, if possible. In the event the Maine native won't be available, Juuso Riikola figures to slot into the lineup, while John Marino could fill in with the No. 2 power-play unit.

Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Scores first goal in OT loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dumoulin scored a shorthanded goal in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Oilers.

The blueliner ruined Mike Smith's shutout bid midway through the third period, taking Bryan Rust's feed in the slot on a 3-on-2 rush and wiring it home from the slot. Dumoulin has one goal and four points through 10 games to begin the season, numbers actually slightly ahead of his usual career scoring pace.

Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Activated off injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dumoulin (lower body) was taken off injured reserve prior to Tuesday's matchup with the Flyers.

While officially considered a game-time call versus Philadelphia, Dumoulin's removal from IR all but guarantees he will be returning to the lineup. The blueliner is expected to resume his pairing with Kris Letang and should be in consideration for time with the No. 2 power-play unit. While the 28-year-old's offensive upside is limited, he is off to a strong start with three points in his first eight games prior to getting hurt and could top the 20-point mark for a second consecutive season.

Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Practices Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dumoulin (lower body) was on the ice for practice Monday and will be a game-time decision against the Flyers on Tuesday, Sam Kasan of Pens Inside Scoop reports.

Dumoulin was back in his usual spot on the top pairing with Kris Letang at practice, which is a good indication he will be ready to play versus Philadelphia on Tuesday. With Dumoulin back in the lineup, Juuso Riikola is likely the odd man out and figures to join Chad Ruhwedel in the press box. Meanwhile, Joseph Blandisi or Sam Lafferty will need to head back to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in order to open up a roster spot.

Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Not ready to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dumoulin (lower body) remains out of the lineup Saturday in Dallas.

The Penguins are getting some reinforcements up front Saturday against Dallas with both Nick Bjugstad (lower body) and Bryan Rust (hand) returning from injured reserve, but the team remains without Dumoulin on the back end. Dumoulin will need to be taken off injured reserve himself before he can play, with his next opportunity to suit up coming in Tuesday's rivalry game against the Flyers.

Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Shifted to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dumoulin (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Monday, retroactive to Oct. 18.

Dumoulin was already ruled out for the next two games and wouldn't have been available until Saturday's contest in Dallas regardless. It's unclear when he'll return, but this mostly appears to be a paper move for now.

October 21, 2019 12:48 PM
Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Unavailable for next two contests
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dumoulin (lower body) won't play in the team's next two games, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Dumoulin was a last-minute scratch for Saturday's game against the Golden Knights, and now he'll be ruled out well in advance of Tuesday's game against the Panthers and Wednesday's matchup against the Lightning. We now know Dumoulin is dealing with a lower-body issue, and he'll target a return versus the Stars on Saturday.

Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Late scratch, status unclear
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penguins head coach Mike Sullivan gave no update on Dumoulin's undisclosed injury after his team's 3-0 loss to Vegas on Saturday.

Dumoulin participated in warmups but was a late scratch, forcing Jack Johnson into action at the last minute; Johnson wasn't even in the building and had to be reached by phone. As for Dumoulin, the lack of an update is concerning and may be a sign that a longer absence is forthcoming. Pittsburgh plays Florida on Tuesday. Expect the team to shed more light on Dumoulin's status in the coming days.

Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Late scratch Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dumoulin (undisclosed) took warmups but won't play Saturday against the Golden Knights, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Dumoulin's absence is a surprise, and as of now, the Penguins have not disclosed what exactly went wrong during warmups to cause him to have to sit out Saturday. Expect the team to update his status following the game. Jack Johnson will take Dumoulin's spot against the Golden Knights.

Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dumoulin (knee) will play in Sunday's preseason game versus the Red Wings.

Dumoulin was hampered by a knee injury during last postseason, but he's ready to rock going forward. The 28-year-old blueliner is poised to man a top-four role again this season, as he posted 23 points, 141 hits and 129 blocked shots in that position last year.

Penguins' Brian Dumoulin: Played through knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dumoulin was sporting a knee brace in the playoffs after suffering a torn PCL, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Dumoulin had perhaps one of his worst playoff performances and it was clear something wasn't 100 percent. The team didn't provide any specifics on whether the blueliner would need surgery to repair his PCL, but even if he does, he should have plenty of time to return to the ice and be ready for the 2019-20 campaign.
