    Wild's Mathew Dumba: Comes out of break hot

    Dumba scored a power-play goal and went minus-1 in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Rangers. At the time, the Wild were rolling and the goal put them up 2-0, but things weren't destined to stay that way. They've been struggling, which has in turn impacted Dumba's rating -- he's gone minus-7 in the last 10 games. However, with three points in two games coming out of the break, he's been a bright spot, perhaps for the first time all year.

    Wild's Mathew Dumba: Snaps lengthy slump with two helpers

    Dumba picked up two assists -- one on the power play -- but went minus-2 in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Isles. Even one point would have been a moral victory for Dumba after 14 consecutive games off the scoresheet, including all of January. This was, in fact, the 21-year-old's very first multi-point effort of the season. Last year's returns were limited (eight goals and eight assists through 58 games), but Dumba flashed plenty of promise and looked like he was building toward a major breakout; unfortunately, he's shown barely any improvement his year. It's nice that he still enjoys a power-play role, but the majority of Dumba's fantasy value comes in keeper leagues, where he still has some long-term appeal as 2012's No. 7 overall pick.

    Wild's Mathew Dumba: Sets team record for defenseman with nine shots

    Dumba set a Wild record for a defenseman with nine shots in Saturday's 3-2 shootout loss to Tampa Bay. His game has been a bit slow to develop, but he is firing pucks and at this rate, Dumba could ring up 150 over the season. He still won't crack the 30-point plateau, so his real value lies a couple years in the future.

    Wild's Mathew Dumba: Scores fourth goal

    Dumba scored his fourth goal of the season in Saturday's win over Colorado and was a plus-1. After an 11-game stretch where he scored just one point, Dumba has scored in back-to-back games and has also drawn praise from head coach Mike Yeo for his defense.

    Wild's Mathew Dumba: Nets power-play goal in Thursday's win

    Dumba sent a laser past James Reimer on the power play Thursday to give the Wild a 1-0 win against the Maple Leafs. Dumba got a nice feed from Jared Spurgeon to set up the one-timer that Reimer had no chance of stopping. He still isn't getting enough playing time to warrant a waiver claim, but Dumba has been decent on the man advantage when given the opportunity.

    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.
  • Wild's Dumba Scores In Playoff Debut

    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.
