When Jordan Staal was traded to the Carolina Hurricanes on June 22, he was swapped for Brandon Sutter, Brian Dumoulin and the eighth selection in the first-round. But for Dumoulin, 20, a defenseman out of Boston College, stepping into Consol Energy Center isnt stepping into any sort of shadow.

Hes my way in as a defenseman, and its my first year pro, he said. Im looking to gain all the knowledge I can right now, and hopefully theres no pressure on me trying to live up to Jordan Staal, and just me being the player I am, the player they traded for.

But Penguins assistant to the general manager Tom Fitzgerald said feeling that pressure isnt out of the question.

Do you see Dumoulin in Pittsburgh this season? Do you think he needs some time with WBS?
