Where’s he been the last two days?
(Edit: Fluto Shinzawa reports that Dupont is dealing with a family illness. We’d certainly like to send best wishes to he and his family.)
His absence in the paper yesterday and today around the Bruins/Canadiens game 7
seems a bit curious was missed, given his credentials and history as the top hockey writer at the Boston Globe.
Dupont started his writing career with the Boston Herald-American back in
1975 1977. He covered the Red Sox to start out with, and did more Bruins coverage as time went by. In 1983 he joined The New York Times and stayed there for a couple of years before coming on board with the Globe in 1985.
He was honored by the Hockey Hall of Fame as a recipient of the 2002 Elmer Ferguson & Foster Hewitt Award. He has also covered 10 Olympic games for the Globe during his career at the paper.
He makes frequent appearances on NESN and has written for ESPN and MSNBC in his career as well.
