The 27-year-old has already scored 16 points in just 13 games (11 goals and 5 assists) in all EIHL competitions and in the process has been rewarded with two awards from the Elite League in the opening month of the season.

When asked what he thought of his time in Dundee so far, Kevin replied: “I have really loved my experience so far, everybody has been great in the organisation from coaches to owners and to fans.

“We have had a lot of support from everyone and that makes it pretty easy to get things going.

“We have a nice set up here and everybody has made it easy for me to do my thing.”

 

The Quebec-native was named Player of the Week in Week Four and Player of the Month for September. But whilst he was happy to be recognised, Dufour just wants to remain focused on doing what he does best.

“It feels great but I just try to play my game and keep focused. Getting rewarded for it is always a bonus”, said Kevin.

There has been an instant connection between Dufour and the rest of his teammates, who have been able to pick him out with a pass and send him through on goal, where he has shown just how clinical and dangerous he can be.

Talking about how long it took him and his new teammates to get on the same wavelength, Dufour said:

“The connection set in pretty quick, we have some really good players on our team and they are all great guys, so they are making my job a lot easier”

There have already been some memorable moments this season and when asked to pick his favourite so far, Kevin answered: “When we won against Belfast home and away in the cup.

“We know they are a really good team and it felt like we really sent a message out to the rest of the league and showed that we are a serious team and a team that can play.”

 

 

With plenty of hockey still to play, the left-winger remains confident that the Stars can build on their strong start throughout the rest of the season.

“I am pretty confident that if we play our game, the way we should and focus on things we can control, I think our team will continue to succeed”, added Dufour.

The Stars are back at home on Sunday for another night of Elite League action, as they face the Sheffield Steelers (face-off 5pm). Get your tickets HERE.
