Observations:

March 2015 - Dumont is having his best pro season to date with the Hamilton Bulldogs. His 38 points through 51 games rank third on the team. Still, at 24, Dumont has only been called up for three games with the Canadiens. He is running out of time as a prospect and would be lucky to land a fourth-line or 13th forward role down the line. Eric Daoust

 

November 2013 - Dumont earned a call-up to the Canadiens' main roster. He played seven minutes on the fourth line in his first appearance. While other forwards earned promotions first, Dumont remains the ideal choice to play a limited energy role at the NHL level. Eric Daoust

 

September 2013 - Dumont was one of the Canadiens' final cuts after their final preseason game. He will likely be the first forward called up in the event of an injury. Eric Daoust

 

July 2013 - Dumont signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Canadiens. It does not appear that he will begin the 2013-14 season in Montreal but could be an injury call-up who is productive for short stretches in multi-category leagues. Eric Daoust

 

April 2013 – Gabriel Dumont is an undersized forward who brings a ton of grit and work ethic to the table. He had a strong finish to his junior career with 51 goals and 93 points for Drummondville of the QMJHL in 2010 and has improved his offensive output in each of his three professional seasons in Hamilton of the AHL. His 31 points in 54 games this year lead the Bulldogs and earned him a call-up to the Canadiens. There, he posted two assists in eight games along with 13 PIM, 16 hits, six blocked shots and 28/44 (64%) at the face-off circle. He projects as an energy player who is responsible at both ends but does not put up a lot of points in the NHL. Eric Daoust

 

 

Fantasy Outlook: D+

Does not have a lot of offensive upside but could have value in multi-category leagues.
