Predators forward J.P. Dumont was named the NHL's Second Star for the month of January. Dumont is the first player in team history to earn NHL Player of the Month recognition. The Predators have had several players earn weekly recognition from the NHL, including Jason Arnott, Martin Erat
, and Chris Mason earlier this season.
Dumont registered points in each of the team's 14 games during the month (6-14--20) as the Predators posted an 8-3-3 record. He figured in 20 of the Predators’ 48 goals during the month and had multi-point games in six of the 14 contests. He is in the midst of a career and franchise-record 16-game point scoring streak that began on December 29 with a goal against San Jose.
