On April 10, 2012, the Carolina Hurricanes, who had drafted him 51st overall in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, signed Dumoulin to an entry-level contract. On June 22, 2012, Dumoulin was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins, along with Brandon Sutter and the 8th overall selection (Derrick Pouliot) in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, for center Jordan Staal.
In the 2013–14 season, Dumoulin made his NHL debut in a December 14, 2013 game against the Detroit Red Wings. He scored his first NHL point on an assist in a game on December 16, 2013, against netminder Jonathan Bernier of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
