Dumba scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Rangers. The goal came on the power play. Dumba is now one goal from double digits, something he did for the first time last season. His 28 points in 64 games are a career mark and he's heating up a bit -- Dumba has five points (two goals, three assists) in his last six games. That's worthy of activation in most formats.
Dumba (illness) will return to the lineup for Friday night's away game against the Panthers. Dumba missed just two games while sick and is projected to slot onto Minnesota's second defensive pairing alongside Jonas Brodin. Dumba hasn't been especially sharp from the blue line of late, notching just one assist and a concerning minus-6 rating in his last five games before falling ill, so it will be interesting to see if he can bounce back after a couple games off.
Dumba (illness) won't play Thursday against Tampa Bay, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports. Dumba will miss a second consecutive game Thursday due to an illness, and the Wild have yet to release any information regarding a potential timetable for the blueliner's return to the lineup. Nate Prosser will continue to slot into a bottom-pairing role to round out Minnesota's depth at defense while Dumba is in recovery mode.
Dumba (illness) was not on the ice in warmups for Tuesday's contest with the Blues. Dumba will be sitting out for Tuesday's contest, and it is unclear what his status will be heading into the Wild's upcoming five-game road trip. The 22-year-old defenseman is one point away from tying last season's career high of 26 points. Head coach Bruce Boudreau confirmed that this illness is not mumps, but still stay tuned for the timeline on Dumba's return.
Dumba (lower body) was paired with Marco Scandella in warmups and will play Tuesday against Chicago, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports. The first-round pick will return from a lower body injury for a rivalry game against the Blackhawks. Over 18 games in 2017, Dumba has scored two goals and recorded seven assists. In these games, the 22-year-old defenseman played 20:40 a game, complemented by substantial power-play ice time as well. Dumba will be return to duty in the defensive rotation as well as the power play, so expect business as usual in Minnesota.
