Welcome to the “In The Corners Podcast,” now hosted by C.C. Hawkley! In this edition of the podcast, C.C. is joined by The Sin Bin’s Editor-in-Chief Matthew Harding, SPHL Editor Mike Campos, and 2015 ECHL Hall of Famer Louis Dumont, who was recently was named as the ECHL’s best player in the last 30 years.
Dumont was recently named number one on the ECHL’s Top 30 players of all-time to commemorate the league’s 30th anniversary year this past season. Dumont’s 566 assists and 891 points are both first on the ECHL’s all-time list, while his 325 goals and 771 games played are both third all-time. “Lou” played 12 seasons for seven different ECHL clubs from 1994 to 2011 before becoming the General Manager of the Louisiana IceGators (SPHL) from 2011 to 2016. Dumont was also inducted into the ECHL Hall of Fame in 2015.
