J.P. Dumont

As the list of memorable free agent signings narrows down, the top three should become clearer and clearer.  J.P. Dumont‘s best hockey was played with the Nashville Predators.  After signing on August 29, 2006, he made an impact right away. His first three seasons went as follows:

  • 06-07: 82 games- 21G, 45A, 66PTS
  • 07-08: 80 games- 29G, 43A, 72PTS
  • 08-09: 82 games- 16G, 49A, 65PTS

Those point totals are still in the top 10 in Predators history, with the 72 points being tied for third. Dumont is also 6th in team history with 267 points.  The impact is undeniable. Forget the fact that his last season ended with a thud, J.P. Dumont is one of the best players to don a Predators jersey.

Nashville also had an impact on him. According to the Predators website, Dumont is still in the city “helping out young hockey players in the area, assisting at Southern Elite Prep’s hockey academy, as well as at Centennial Sportsplex and Ford Ice Center.”
