Not surprised, he has little else to prove at the NCAA level, especially if they win the title as expected. Dmen just don't win the Hobey Baker all that often and the fact that he's a finalist as a defensive dman is huge.
I still don't see the time listed on that site you just linked to.
As for signing Dumoulin... awesome. Though I was never truly worried about him not signing, not sure where all that stuff came from. He's not a d-bag like "JMFJ" was.
I fully expect him to be on the NHL roster at some point next season.
I don't think there ever was much out there in the first place. As far as I can tell, the only inference I've seen on this board was when I made a comment in the prospects thread a couple of days ago asking if anyone heard anything and saying that with all the stuff going on with Schulz, I was getting paranoid.
I could be wrong, but don't think there was anything else out there more than that.
I think the Schulz situation got everyone a little paranoid. I saw this quote in an article a couple days ago that made it sound he was likely going to sign at the end of the season, which eased my nerves a little bit.
Whether this is Dumoulin’s last college season remains to be seen. He was selected by Carolina in the second round (No. 51 overall) in the 2009 NHL draft. Dumoulin went to Carolina’s development camp that summer before he started at BC.
He said the Hurricanes have put no pressure on him to leave school early.
“Coach [York] talks about our goals for the season [using] a telescope and a microscope,’’ said Dumoulin. “A microscope is focusing on a single [goal in the present]. Right now, my microscope is focusing on Minnesota and getting better while I’m here at BC.
“Obviously, you can’t help but think about your future and what you’re going to do and that’s part of the telescope, that’s going to come down the road.
“Everyone wants to play in the NHL, I want to play in the NHL. That’s something we’ll take care of at the end of the season.’’
