J.P. Dumont will be skating for the Nashville Predators this coming season.

Sources tell TSN that Dumont has agreed to a two-year contract worth $4.5 million. He will be paid $2 million the first year and $2.5 in the second.

The 28-year-old forward became an unrestricted free agent in early August when the Buffalo Sabres walked away from an arbitration ruling awarding him a one-year $2.9 million contract.

The Montreal native scored 20 goals and added 20 assists over 54 games with Buffalo last season. He has 121 goals and 256 points in 434 games over his career with Chicago and Buffalo.

The official announcement is expected this afternoon.

J.P. Dumont will be skating for the Nashville Predators this coming season.

He has agreed to a two-year contract worth $4.5 million. He will be paid $2-million the first year and $2.5-million in the second.

The 28-year-old forward became an unrestricted free agent in early August when the Buffalo Sabres walked away from an arbitration ruling awarding him a one-year $2.9 million contract.

Predators general manager David Poile explained the club was happy about the Sabres' decision to walk away. "This was a guy who was not on our radar when the off-season first came about. But because he was made a free agent he became very attractive to us. The Buffalo Sabres thought they lost a really good player and a really good person."

Dumont spoke with former Predators defenceman Joel Bouchard prior to making the decision. "Nashville is a team that has been moving forward the past few years, Joel told me good things about Nashville, the town, and the organization."

The Montreal native scored 20 goals and added 20 assists over 54 games with Buffalo last season. He has 121 goals and 256 points in 434 games over his career with Chicago and Buffalo.

nashville will be strong next year

they have good goalie vokoun and they signed arnott and dumont too this offseason
I'll give them Vokoun, but Arnott, to me, he isn't much of a player, he plays great the year his contracts come due, but other than that, he's nothing!! IMO anyways!!

Plus, they have to get well known names in there, their loosing fans fast!!!
