Bulldogs Player of the Week: Gabriel Dumont
The Bulldogs captain is putting together his best season as a professional hockey player, as he set new highs in several categories this week. He kicked off the week by tallying his 17th goal of the season Saturday night against San Antonio in a 4-2 loss. Dumont then followed that up with a superb shorthanded goal the next day in a 3-2 OT loss to the Rampage. He also engaged in one of the strangest fights I've ever witnessed, Dumont got in the face of Garret Wilson after the whistle, then proceeded to neatly place his gloves on the ice before instigating a fight.
Overall his 18 goals and 23 assists are both professional bests for Dumont who will be a restricted free agent at the end of the season.
