Dumba took part in the a.m. skate Saturday, and now he's expected to join Ryan Suter -- who's appearing in just his second preseason contest ahead of the new season -- on the top pair. The ever-improving Dumba is a nice back-end selection in fantasy drafts after he put up 11 goals, 23 helpers and a plus-15 rating over 76 contests last season.
Dumba (ankle) returned to practice Thursday, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Dumba "tweaked" his ankle during Tuesday's preseason loss to Dallas. He didn't play in Thursday's preseason game and will likely to miss out Saturday as well. Still, it sounds like he's got a good chance to be ready for the start of the regular season.
Dumba "tweaked" his ankle during Tuesday's preseason loss to Dallas, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports. Surprisingly, the Wild didn't release any information about an injury to Dumba following the game. There's been no indication what Dumba's status will be for Thursday's preseason bout with St. Louis, but in his report, Russo theorizes that the injury is serious enough that it forced Minnesota to keep fellow blueliner Ryan Murphy through Wednesday's roster cuts.
Dumba (hand) will be in the lineup against the Jets on Thursday. Dumba spent the offseason recovering from a broken hand suffered during the playoffs, but he'll slot into Thursday's preseason contest. The blueliner set career highs in goals (11), assists (23) and shots (152) last year, showing the ability -- to challenge for 40-plus points in 2017-18.
