Brian Dumoulin has re-signed with the Pittsburgh Penguins after salary arbitration reports in which player and team were allegedly quite far apart. It was reported that the Penguins were offering $1.95 million while Dumoulin was requesting $4.35 million. Dumoulin won out, and today signed a 6 year, $4.1 million contract with Pittsburgh. This will keep Dumoulin with the Penguins through the 2022-23 season, barring trades.
Dumoulin has been a key player for Pittsburgh, seeing significant ice time and contributing on both offense and defense. After spending 1 season in the AHL and 2 seasons playing in both the AHL and NHL, Dumoulin has spent the last 2 seasons as a full time NHL player. His entire pro career has been spent in the Penguins organization.
Dumoulin recorded 15 regular season points and 6 playoff points during the 2016-17 season, including 2 goals. He had only 14 PIM during the regular season, and is an important member of Pittsburgh’s PK unit.
Congrats to Dumoulin on his new contract with the NHL’s current powerhouse team!
