Dumont played four seasons for Val-d'Or Foreurs in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Roberto Luongo, Francis Lessard, Steve Bégin and Jean-Luc Grand-Pierre were teammates at Val-d'Or who have also made it to the NHL.

Professional careerEdit

Dumont was drafted third overall the 1996 NHL Entry Draft by the New York Islanders. In 1998, a contract dispute between Dumont and the team led to the Islanders to trade him to the Chicago Blackhawks along with a 5th round pick in exchange for Dmitri Nabokov. In March 2000, he was traded to the Buffalo Sabres. Dumont, Doug Gilmour and a draft pick went to the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for Michal Grosek. In August 2006, he signed a two-year, $4.5-million contract with the Nashville Predators after the Buffalo Sabres rejected Dumont's $2.9-million arbitration award.

In February 2008, Dumont signed a four-year, $16-million contract extension with the Nashville Predators.

On October 17, 2008, Dumont scored his 400th point in a game against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

In 2010, Dumont generously donated items to the Brewer, Maine youth hockey program, by-way of (now former) Maine State Representative Chris Greeley, who served for a number of years in the Maine Legislature with Dumont's father-in-law, a state senator.

In the 2010-11 season, Dumont posted 19 points in 70 games with the Predators, his lowest point total since coming to Nashville.

On June 30, 2011, the day before free agency, the Predators bought out Dumont, making him an unrestricted free agent for July 1.

Personal lifeEdit

J.P. is married to Kristin and has four daughters: Ella, Ava, Laila and Mya.[1]
