Scouting Report

Scouting Comments: 

Dumont is a tough forward who plays with a lot of energy and grit. Won't back down from bigger opponents and can be an agitator. However, he is of diminutive stature, which can be a problem at times. Always competes hard, though.
- Erik K. Piri, EP (2014)

Strengths: 

Has good checking qualities and can also be a very effective agitator. Plays both center and wing. Proved he could produce offense in junior hockey. He also displayed leadership qualities at that level.

Weaknesses: 

Is quite undersized for the pro game, so he must prove capable of playing an abrasive style against much bigger opponents in the NHL. The jury is still out on his offensive upside at the highest level, as well.

Projection: 

Versatile, agitating depth forward.

Scouting Report

Strengths: 

Is known for his ability to find the back of the net with regularity. Not big, but he will drive into traffic areas when a scoring opportunity arises. Is a good stickhandler and shooter. Can play either wing position effectively.

Weaknesses: 

Must add more strength and work on the little things in order to become a top pro scoring winger. An average skater, he's not a great defender either at this point. Must be able to do more than score goals in the NHL.

Projection: 

Depth scoring winger.

Scouting Report

Scouting Comments: 

A character forward, Bournival is also a capable scorer. He's got a terrific work ethic and never quits on the ice. Is a speedy skater.

Strengths: 

Has very good defensive instincts, plus some offensive upside. Can play both center and wing. Excels on the penalty kill and when shutting down opposing skilled forwards.

Weaknesses: 

The jury is still out on his long-range offensive potential at the highest level, so he may have to settle into a bottom-six forward role. Is also undersized for the NHL.

Projection: 

Versatile forward with a little upside.
