Well, I have never really heard a lot about Dumoulin. I don't follow college hockey as closely as I used to, and I only really heard of him on the occasion I talked to my friend who is a huge college hockey fan. When we traded for him, the text I got from my friend simply said, "Stud."
The guy operates with some great poise. Couple that poise with a high hockey IQ, and a pretty well rounded skillset, and you have the makings of a seriously good defenseman. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see him develop into the best defenseman that we currently have.
