Dumont was claimed off waivers by the Lightning on Wednesday, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports. The Senators originally pried Dumont away from Tampa Bay through the waiver process in late November, so he's gone full circle back to the original employer. According to Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times, the 27-year-old pivot has already been assigned to AHL Syracuse. There's no fantasy value with Dumont, as he's only provided nine points in 87 career games between the Habs, Bolts and Senators.
The Senators placed Dumont on waivers Tuesday, Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman reports. This move suggests Ryan Dzingel (personal) will likely be available for Wednesday's matchup with Chicago. If Dumont, who's only tallied one goal and two points in 23 contests this campaign, goes unclaimed, he'll likely be assigned to AHL Belleville, where he could spend the rest of the 2017-18 season.
Dumont (undisclosed) was activated from injured reserve Friday, Brent Wallace of TSN.ca reports. Dumont has missed the past nine games tending to his unspecified issue. However, his activation sets him up to be an option for the Senators' game against the Rangers on Saturday. Still, we're talking about a guy that's appeared in only 85 NHL games since the Canadiens originally called his name in the fifth round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, and he's clearly free-agent fodder in virtually any fantasy format.
Dumont (undisclosed) participated in practice but will remain out of the lineup Thursday against the Sabres, Callum Fraser of NHL.com reports. Dumont was reportedly targeting Thursday for his return to action, but he will instead continue on the rest and rehab route. Considering he's averaged fewer than 10 minutes of ice time per contest since joining the Senators, it's unlikely his eventual activation off of injured reserve will have a large impact from a fantasy standpoint.
Dumont (undisclosed) is hoping to return to action for Thursday's clash with Buffalo, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports. The news effectively rules Dumont out of action against the Penguins on Tuesday, but it certainly appears he is nearing a return. Even when in the lineup, the center isn't exactly a prolific scorer, considering he has two points in 21 contests this year. Once cleared to play, the Quebec native will need to be activated off injured reserve.
