Preds sign Dumont long term
Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has signed forward J.P. Dumont to a four-year, $16 million contract.
“J.P. Dumont’s commitment, leadership, work ethic and reputation as a big-game performer has helped him fit perfectly into the Predators culture since he came to Nashville by choice as an unrestricted free agent prior to the 2006-07 season,” Poile said. “When he expressed a desire to stay in Nashville, we jumped at the opportunity to keep him as part of our team’s foundation for the next four seasons.”>> team release
He's been a solid first-line forward the past two years, and comes at a reasonable price.
