The Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the Nashville Predators in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final, earning a 4-2 series victory with a 2-0 win. This means that the Cup will be hoisted by an Eagle yet again, as Brian Dumoulin is one of Pittsburgh’s core defenders. Dumoulin led the Penguins in the post-game handshake line.
Dumoulin played for BC from 2010-2012, winning 2 NCAA Tournament Championships with the Eagles. He has played in the Penguins organization since leaving Boston College, and is in his second full season in the NHL. Dumoulin was a member of last year’s Stanley Cup Champion Penguins team, so this is his second Stanley Cup victory.
Dumoulin picked up 15 regular season points this season, including 1 goal. He also scored a single post-season goal this year and added a handful of assists, one of which came on the Penguins’ final goal of the playoffs. Dumoulin is the 5th Eagle to win more than 1 Stanley Cup as a player. Previous winners from BC are Joe Mullen (3x), Kevin Stevens (2x), Brian Leetch (1x), Bill Guerin (2x), Doug Brown (2x), Brian Gionta (1x), Ryan Shannon (1x), Brooks Orpik (1x), Rob Scuderi (1x), and Ben Smith (1x).
Congrats also go out to BC legend Bill Guerin, who is the Assistant General Manager of the Penguins!
