Dumba (hand) was left unprotected by the Wild ahead of Wednesday's expansion draft, TSN reports.

Dumba is currently dealing with a broken hand that he suffered during the playoffs, but he's expected back to full strength ahead of the 2017-18 season, so it shouldn't have a huge impact on whether or not he's grabbed by Vegas. He's currently heading into the final year of his contract and the Wild were already considering the idea of dealing him ahead of the expansion draft, so Dumba's time in Minnesota could be coming to a close. In 76 games last season, Dumba had 34 points, 96 hits and 71 blocked shots.
