A Six-Year Contract For Brian Dumoulin And The Pittsburgh Penguins

from the Pittsburgh Penguins,

The Pittsburgh Penguins have agreed to terms with defenseman Brian Dumoulin on a six-year contract, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Jim Rutherford.

The deal begins with the 2017-18 season and runs through the 2022-23 season, and has an average annual value of $4.1 million.

Dumoulin, 25, has been a key component to the Penguins' back-to-back Stanley Cup championships, as he played in all 49 playoff games in that span, and recorded 14 points (3G-11A). In the 2017 playoffs, Dumoulin had an average ice time of 21:59 minutes, the most of any Penguins skater, and his plus-9 paced all team defenders. He assisted on Carl Hagelin's empty-net goal that sealed the 2-0 victory in the decisive Game 6 of the Cup Final against Nashville.
