Montreal Canadiens call up Gabriel Dumont from the Hamilton Bulldogs

The Canadiens have called up the Hamilton Bulldogs' leading scorer.

The Montreal Canadiens have called up the 22 year old leading scorer of the Hamilton Bulldogs, Gabriel Dumont. Dumont has 15 goals and 15 assists in 52 Bulldogs game this year.

It's a curious move, one that follows a failed attempt to pick up Tom Sestito on waivers yesterday. It could be that Marc Bergevin isn't comfortable without having an extra forward available due to the concussion suffered by Rene Bourque.

Personally I'm much more comfortable with the idea of Dumont in the lineup than I am with a useless hockey player like Sestito. It's unlikely that Dumont gets into a game though, unless another forward is injured.

Official Press Release:

MONTREAL, QUE - Montreal Canadiens and Hamilton Bulldogs General Manager Marc Bergevin announced today that the Canadiens have recalled forward Gabriel Dumont from the Bulldogs.

Dumont, 22, has played 52 games for the Bulldogs this season and leads the team in points (30), goals (15) and assists (15) while also accumulating 81 penalty minutes. The native of Ville Degelis, Quebec represented the Bulldogs at the 2013 AHL All-Star Classic suiting up for the Western Conference All-Stars. On December 28th against the St. John's IceCaps, Dumont notched a career-high five points (3 goals, 2 assists) in a 6-3 victory. The 5'10", 186-pound forward has played 175 regular season games over three seasons for the Bulldogs posting 72 points (33 goals, 39 assists) and 215 penalty minutes. Dumont was originally selected by the Canadiens in the fifth round, 139th overall in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.
