Scouting Report

Scouting Comments: 

Dumont is a tough forward who plays with a lot of energy and grit. Won't back down from bigger opponents and can be an agitator. However, he is of diminutive stature, which can be a problem at times. Always competes hard, though.
- Erik K. Piri, EP (2014)

Strengths: 

Has good checking qualities and can also be a very effective agitator. Plays both center and wing. Proved he could produce offense in junior hockey. He also displayed leadership qualities at that level.

Weaknesses: 

Is quite undersized for the pro game, so he must prove capable of playing an abrasive style against much bigger opponents in the NHL. The jury is still out on his offensive upside at the highest level, as well.

Projection: 

Versatile, agitating depth forward.
