Micki DuPont (born April 15, 1980) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenseman currently playing for the Kloten Flyers in the Swiss National League A.

Playing career[edit]

Normally playing as a defenceman, DuPont was drafted 270th overall in the ninth round by the Calgary Flames in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft. In his first season in the AHL, Dupont was named the St. John Flames Rookie of the Year, named to the AHL All-Rookie Team after leading the Flames and all AHL rookies in plus/minus at +28, finishing second among all AHL players and played a key role on Saint-John's blue line en route to their first AHL Calder Cup Championship.

He was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins on March 11, 2003 after playing two seasons with the Flames, but did not play for the Penguins before he moved to the Deutsche Eishockey Liga to play with Eisbaren Berlin, and was part of the team which won the 2003-04 DEL Championship. He remained with Berlin for the 2005–06 season, during which he played 52 regular season games and won his second DEL Championship. DuPont was also named to the Canadian squad for the 2006 Men's World Ice Hockey Championships. He played 23 games for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins of the AHL in the 2006–07 season before being recalled by Pittsburgh on December 4, 2006.

DuPont was signed by the St. Louis Blues on July 3, 2007. DuPont played the 2008–09 and 2009–10 seasons in Zug, Switzerland for the EV Zug where he led the NLA in most goals for a defenceman in 2009. In November 2009 it was announced, that DuPont signed a contract with the Kloten Flyers for three years, starting in the 2010–11 season.[1] In 2010–11 and 2011–12, DuPont led the league in most points by a defenceman, with a consistent 41 points in 49 games both seasons.
