The Steady Presence of Brian Dumoulin

Coming into the 2015/16 NHL season, Brian Dumoulin’s NHL resume consisted of 260 minutes of even-strength hockey. Of those 260 minutes, only 65 came in the Stanley Cup playoffs via a short-lived first round flame out against the New York Rangers. Dumoulin’s minutes in that first-round loss were soft and sheltered. He was deployed primarily against the Rangers 4th line with...
