Dumont Awarded

Buffalo Sabres forward J.P. Dumont has been awarded a one-year, $2.9 million contract in arbitration, according to reports.

Dumont made $1.596 million last season, scoring 20 goals and 40 points in 54 games.

The Sabres have 48 hours after their final arbitration hearing with centre Adam Mair to make a decision on the award. If the Sabres reject the ruling, he becomes an unrestricted free agent.
