Dumoulin is looking to add offense to his game after finishing with 16 points (all assists) in 79 games as a rookie in 2015-16. "Going throughout the (regular) season without scoring a goal, that's not something you want to duplicate," he told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "My goal is to bear down a little bit more offensively this year. I got some chances, but I really want to make sure I put them away and contribute offensively."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016-17

Subscribe now to see our 2016-17 outlook.

2015-16

The Penguins signed Dumoulin to a two-year, one-way contract in July, and thus the former Boston College standout is set to ply his trade as a regular on Pittsburgh's third defensive pairing this year despite having only 14 NHL games under his belt to this point. Dumoulin has some offensive potential -- he totaled 33 points and a plus-25 rating in the AHL this past season -- but with the higher-upside blueliners Olli Maatta and Derrick Pouliot ahead of him at left defense, it'll likely take injuries for him to win a bigger role. Still, Dumoulin is a person of interest in leagues that count hits and blocked shots this coming season, as he's likely to pile those up in a defensively oriented role. And if a more premier role were to open up, he could become a midseason breakout candidate.

2014-15

Acquired in the Jordan Staal trade, Dumoulin appears set to make his mark in Pittsburgh. The Boston College product could start the season as the team's sixth or seventh defenseman. In two AHL campaigns, the 6-foot-4, 219-pound defender has shown some offensive potential - he accumulated 21 points in 53 games last year for Wilkes-Barre. He is arguably the most polished of the organization's defensive prospects and could slide into a bigger role as the season progresses if Paul Martin and/or Kris Letang is moved.

2013-14

Acquired from Carolina in the draft-day Jordan Staal trade of 2012, Dumoulin was thought to be more of a defensive-defenseman when the Pens picked him up. After making his AHL debut for the Baby Pens, however, there's a chance he could contribute offensively someday in the NHL. In 2012-13, Dumoulin scored 23 points (6G, 17A) in 73 regular-season games and then added two goals and eight points in 15 postseason contests. Because his defensive skills are so advanced, he rates highly on the list of Pittsburgh's blue line prospects ready to make an NHL impact. His perceived upside at the offensive end of the rink isn't as high as Derrick Pouliot or Simon Despres, but he could make his debut for the Pens as soon as in 2013-14.

2012-13

Dumoulin stood out with his good size (6-foot-3, 200 pounds) during the Pens' developmental camp over the summer. He's closer to the NHL than many of Pittsburgh's other prospects. A defensive-oriented player, Dumoulin spent his last three years playing for Boston College. A jump straight to the Penguins probably isn't reasonable to expect, but the fact that it's being talked about bodes well for his future. Dumoulin, acquired from Carolina in the Jordan Staal trade, stands out among Pittsburgh's defensive prospects because of the ability in his own end but, from a fantasy perspective, he's probably not a player worth getting too excited over.

2011-12

Dumoulin is a smooth-skating defenseman best known for having won the NCAA Championship with Boston College in 2009. And thanks to his superb vision, the defensive prospect assisted on 51 scores for the Eagles in his first two seasons at the collegiate level. Dumoulin’s upside is difficult to ignore, but he’ll have to continue paying his dues in the lower ranks before climbing on board with the Hurricanes.

2010-11

Dumoulin, the Hurricanes' second round draft pick of 2009, is coming off an unforgettable freshman campaign skating for Boston College. Before leading his team to a national championship with the Eagles, a graceful skating Dumoulin went plus-40 in the plus/minus category, which was a great compliment to his 22 assists in 42 regular-season games. He shouldn't crack the 'Canes lineup for at least another year or two, but study up on Dumoulin, as he could become an excellent keeper pick down the line.

2009-10

The Hurricanes selected 18-year-old Dumoulin with pick No. 51 of the 2009 NHL entry draft. Even though he lacks physicality, his excellent skating and superior work ethic makes him someone to track.
