Pen­guins sign Du­moulin to 6-year con­tract

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

Pitts­burgh Pen­guins de­fence­man Brian Du­moulin has turned his steady play for the Stan­ley Cup cham­pi­ons into a new con­tract.

Du­moulin and the team agreed to a six-year deal on Mon­day that will run through the 2022-23 sea­son and will pay him an av­er­age of $4.1 mil­lion per year.

The 25-year-old Du­moulin had three goals and 11 as­sists dur­ing Pitts­burgh’s run to the Cup this spring and hasn’t missed a play­off game dur­ing the team’s sprint to back-to-back ti­tles.

Du­moulin av­er­aged a team-high 21:59 of ice time this post-sea­son, and his plus-9 rat­ing was best among Pen­guins de­fence­men. Du­moulin was forced to take on a larger roll this spring af­ter in­juries forced Kris Le­tang to miss the play­offs.
