Brian Dumoulin to Represent BC in the Stanley Cup Finals

Dumoulin will be the only former BC player in the finals.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

With last week's win over Brian Boyle and the Tampa Bay Lightning, Brian Dumoulin and the Penguins moved on to the Stanley Cup Finals. Dumoulin is the only former BC player still in contention for the Stanley Cup. Pittsburgh will be taking on the San Jose Sharks in the finals - San Jose has no BC alumni on their team.

Pittsburgh last won the Stanley Cup in 2009, when Bill Guerin, Brooks Orpik, and Rob Scuderi were all playing for the Penguins. Dumoulin played his first NHL game for the Penguins in the 2013-14 season. Since leaving BC at the conclusion of the 2011-12 season, Dumoulin has played for the Penguins organization. He has split time between the NHL and AHL, and this season was his first full season in the NHL. Dumoulin has been an integral part of the Penguins defense, recording 16 assists and a +/- of 11 during the regular season. He averages just under 19 minutes of time of the ice per game. Dumoulin has scored 1 goal and recorded 6 assists this postseason. His postseason goal (scored against Tampa) was his career first NHL playoff goal.
