      Wild's Mathew Dumba: Scores first goal

      Dumba scored his first goal of the season in Saturday's win over Anaheim. Dumba had just three seconds of time on the power play, so he hasn't returned to special teams after being removed from the power play unit Thursday. He had a block and was plus-one, so he could find a larger role again if his defense improves.

      Wild's Mathew Dumba: Removed from power play

      Dumba was taken off the power play in Thursday's win over Columbus. He did not score but head coach Mike Yeo said he improved on defense after struggling the past few games, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Dumba is off to a slow start with just one assist in six games and is minus-two in plus/minus. It's not clear if his removal from the power play is permanent, but he'll most likely return once he gets out of the coach's dog house for poor defensive play.

      Wild D Mathew Dumba gets helper in season opener

      Matt Dumba picked up an assist and blocked three shots in the Wild's Opening Night win on Thursday. The No. 7 overall pick in 2012, Dumba played well in his first action of 2015-16. He picked up the secondary assist on the goal that sparked the Wild's comeback in the third period. Dumba also saw limited power play time and his pedigree makes him someone to keep an eye on if you're looking for potential blue line sleepers.

    • Dumba's Two Assists Can't Help Wild Avoid Sweep

      News: Matt Dumba picked up his first multi-point game of the playoffs Thursday in Game 4 against Chicago, dishing out two assists, but it wasn't enough in a season-ending 4-3 loss.
      Analysis: It's a case of too little, too late for Matt Dumba, who had his best game of the playoffs, including firing five shots -- that's one more than he had in the prior six games combined. He finishes the playoffs with just four points (two goals, two assists) in 10 games, but the 20-year-old Dumba has a world of upside, and his playoff experience will serve him well going forward.

      News: Matt Dumba potted a power-play goal in his NHL playoff debut Thursday against the Blues.
      Analysis: Matt Dumba had an inconsistent offensive season, and he only skated 11:32 in Thursday's game, with Jonas Brodin and Ryan Suter sucking up a lot of the ice time. He's got great long-term upside, but expectations should be low in these playoffs.
    • Wild's Dumba Assists Twice In Loss

      News: Matt Dumba had the primary assist on both Minnesota goals in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Rangers.
      Analysis: A very active game for Matt Dumba, who pinched into the offensive zone frequently and aggressively. He's been a more frequent scoreboard presence of late, with five points in his last eight games. All in all, Dumba looks like he's got all the goods for a big breakout next year.
    • Wild's Dumba Scores PP Goal In Win

      News: Matt Dumba scored a power-play goal and fired four shots on goal in Friday's win over the Flames.
      Analysis: Matt Dumba is now up to eight goals and a plus-13 rating in 51 games on the season. Considering he's playing on the top power-play unit with Ryan Suter, the 20-year-old is worth a look in some deeper leagues. While he's only got 13 points, the youngster has a lethal shot and is emerging as a solid goal-scorer on the back-end for Minnesota.
    • Wild's Dumba Pots OT Winner

      News: Matt Dumba scored the game-winning goal in overtime to deliver a 3-2 victory Tuesday against the Predators. He also blocked five shots and gathered two penalty minutes.
      Analysis: Although he'd just been promoted to the top power-play unit, the winner came at even strength -- well, four-on-four. Matt Dumba still owns only 11 points on the season, but things are starting to look awfully promising for the former first-round pick (No. 7 in 2012).
    • Wild's Dumba Increases Power Play Role

      News: Matt Dumba moved to the right point of the first power-play unit in Monday's practice, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
      Analysis: The Wild continue to shift things around in an attempt to correct their struggles on the man advantage (just 3-for-35 in the past 15 games). Matt Dumba's role on the Wild continues to grow, and his scoring should increase now that his powerful shot's being deployed on the top power-play unit.
    • Dumba Carries Wild Offense In Win

      News: Matt Dumba scored both of Minnesota's regulation goals and notched two penalty minutes Tuesday in a shootout win over the Senators.
      Analysis: He's been finding the scoresheet more often lately, having tallied four times in the last seven games, though he has no assists in that span. Still just 20 years old, Matt Dumba has all kinds of long-term upside, but this is about as good as his production's going to get this year.
