Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Brian Dumoulin
Brian Dumoulin was born September 6, 1991 in Biddeford, Maine. The 6’4 defenseman was drafted in the second round, 51st overall, by the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

Dumoulin crafted his play within the NCAA ranks, playing with the Boston College Eagles for three years. In 2012, his final year with Boston College, he helped the Eagles win their fifth NCAA National Championship. In his time with Boston College he was named to the All-Hockey East First Team twice (2011, 2012), an AHCA East First-Team All-American twice (2011, 2012), a Hockey East All-Tournament Team (2012), a NCAA All-Tournament Team (2012), and a Hobey Baker Award Finalist (2012).

On April 10, 2012 the Carolina Hurricanes traded Dumoulin, Brandon Sutter, and their first round pick in 2012 to the Pittsburgh Penguins for centre Jordan Staal. Within the Penguins’ organization, Dumoulin started his professional career with the AHL’s Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.

In the middle of the 2013-14 season, Dumoulin got his first sniff of the NHL, making his debut on December 14, 2013 in a 4-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings. Just two days later he would record his first point in a 3-1 victory against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Dumoulin would not get his first NHL goal until almost a year later on December 15, 2014, when he beat Tampa Bay’s Evgeni Nabokov in a 4-2 victory over the Lightning.

The 2015-16 season would be Dumoulin's first full season with the Penguins. He suited up in 79 regular-season games as well as 24 post-season contests, helping the club to the fourth Stanley Cup championship in franchise history. Dumoulin would appear in 70 regular-season games the following year as well as all 25 of the Penguin's post-season contests as the club marched to their second consecutive Stanley Cup title.

On the international stage, Dumoulin has represented the United States once during the 2011 World Junior Championships in Buffalo, where he helped the United States to a bronze medal.
