  • Wild's Matt Dumba: Dealing with concussion

    Dumba suffered a concussion in Game 6 against Dallas on Friday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Dumba didn't play in the third period of Minnesota's season-ending 4-1 loss to the Stars due to the injury. He spoke to the media Monday, so his recovery appears to be moving in the right direction. Dumba produced 14 points, 81 PIM, 116 blocked shots and 104 hits across 79 regular-season games in 2022-23.

  • Wild's Matt Dumba: Suffers injury Friday

    Dumba (upper body) was injured Friday against the Stars, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Dumba posted a minus-2 rating and three hits through 15:11 of ice time Friday. The Wild were eliminated from the playoffs, and Dumba is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason. He tallied just 14 points in 79 games during the regular season.

  • Wild's Matt Dumba: Gathers helper in loss

    Dumba recorded an assist and two hits in Wednesday's 7-3 loss to the Stars in Game 2.

    Dumba ended a seven-game point drought when he helped out on an Oskar Sundqvist tally in the first period. The 28-year-old defenseman had a tough regular season, notching just 14 points with 116 blocked shots, 104 hits, 99 shots on net and 81 PIM in 79 outings. His tough playing style fits in with the Wild, but he shouldn't be counted on for offense.

  • Wild's Matt Dumba: Not playing Monday

    Dumba (undisclosed) won't play Monday against the Blackhawks, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

  • Wild's Matt Dumba: Garners helper in win

    Dumba produced an assist, four shots on goal, two hits and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Avalanche.

    Dumba has been invisible on offense lately -- his assist Wednesday snapped a 22-game point drought. He has just four helpers over 37 contests since the start of January. The 28-year-old is at 14 points, 90 shots on net, 77 PIM, 104 blocked shots and 94 hits through 73 appearances. His timing is poor, as Dumba is set for unrestricted free agency this summer, but he'll be coming off of his worst NHL campaign.

  • Wild's Matt Dumba: Set to play

    Dumba is expected to return to the lineup Tuesday against Tampa Bay, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

    Dumba, who has been a healthy scratch for the past two games, has four goals, 12 points, 56 shots on net, 64 blocks and 58 hits in 43 contests this campaign. He skated alongside Jonas Brodin during Monday's practice. Dumba's return is projected to bump Alex Goligoski from the lineup.

  • Wild's Matt Dumba: Expected to be scratched Saturday

    Dumba is expected to serve as a healthy scratch on Saturday versus Florida, per Joe Smith of The Athletic.

    Dumba was scratched for Thursday's 5-2 loss to Carolina, and Wild coach Dean Evanson has decided that he wants to go with the same lineup for Saturday's game. That suggests Alex Goligoski will play for a second straight contest in addition to Dumba remaining out. Dumba has four goals, 12 points, 58 hits and 64 blocks in 43 contests this season.

  • Wild's Matt Dumba: Scratched Thursday

    Dumba served as a healthy scratch against the Hurricanes on Thursday. Coach Dean Evanson told reporters, "I won't get into specifics, but he knows why he's sitting out," Sarah McLellan of the Star Tribune reports.

    Dumba has been a mainstay in the Wild's lineup, having logged all 43 games for the Wild this season before sitting out Thursday. The veteran blueliner hasn't been a healthy scratch since April 5, 2006 against San Jose. It's unlikely to be a long-term issue with Dumba telling reporters he was "pretty surprised" by the decision. Alex Goligoski stepped into the lineup in Dumba's stead.

  • Wild's Matt Dumba: Ignites Wild offense

    Dumba scored a goal during a 5-2 victory over the host Blues on Saturday.

    Dumba, who enjoyed four straight seasons of converting at least 10 markers (2015-19), scored his first goal in seven outings, tying Saturday's score at 1-1. The 28-year-old defenseman has four goals in 36 outings this season. Along with his first-period tally, Dumba contributed two shots and two PIM during the win.

  • Wild's Matt Dumba: Records assist vs. Flames

    Dumba registered an assist in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to Calgary.

    Dumba has two goals and eight points in 25 games this season. He had 14 goals and 50 points in 82 contests in 2017-18, but since then he hasn't even reached the 30-point milestone. The 28-year-old consequently isn't expected to score regularly this season, though his offensive pace might improve a bit.

  • Wild's Matt Dumba: Two helpers in win

    Dumba logged two helpers in a 6-1 win over the Jets on Wednesday.

    Dumba had three hits in addition to his two assists in 20:29 of ice time. With only four points in 18 contests prior to Wednesday's matchup, this type of production was a pleasant surprise for both the Wild and fantasy managers.

  • Wild's Matt Dumba: Caps Thursday's scoring

    Dumba scored a goal during Thursday's 6-4 loss to the visiting Penguins.

    Dumba, who has two goals during his past five outings, is starting to flash the offensive potential he displayed from 2015-19. During those four seasons, the 2012 No. 7 overall draft pick collected a combined 47 goals. The 28-year-old defenseman has 21 goals over the past three-plus campaigns. Dumba's second tally this season capped Thursday's scoring and developed from a one-timer from the left faceoff circle with eight seconds remaining. He finished with a plus-2 rating, two blocks and two PIM.

  • Wild's Matt Dumba: Tallies game-winner

    Dumba scored a goal on three shots, blocked two shots and added four PIM in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Ducks.

    Dumba put the Wild ahead 1:41 into the third period, and his goal was all they needed for the win. The defenseman snapped a 10-game point drought with the tally. He's had a rough start to 2022-23 with three points, 19 shots on net, 21 hits, 24 blocked shots, 17 PIM and a minus-5 rating in 13 outings. Part of that has been a byproduct of the Wild's overall struggles, but the 28-year-old isn't doing much to stand out, especially with virtually no power-play time. For now, Calen Addison and Jared Spurgeon seem to be head coach Dean Evason's preferred blueliners with the man advantage.

  • Wild's Matt Dumba: Getting almost no power-play time

    Dumba has seen almost no time on the power play in the early stages of the season.

    Dumba averaged 1:45 of ice time with the man advantage last season, which isn't a ton, but it's enough to be noteworthy. So far in 2022-23 though, his power-play ice time has totaled 0:21 over four games. During Thursday's 4-3 overtime win against Vancouver, Minnesota had three power-play opportunities -- and Dumba wasn't on the ice for any of them. Dumba only had five power-play points in 2021-22, so between the lack of production and recent reduction in opportunities, his final stock could be tumbling.

  • Wild's Matt Dumba: Tallies lone goal in Game 6 loss

    Dumba scored a goal on three shots and added four hits in Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Blues in Game 6.

    This was Dumba's only point in the six-game series, which ended with the Wild getting eliminated in a 4-2 series loss. The 27-year-old added 14 hits, nine blocked shots and a plus-4 rating in a top-four role. He posted 27 points in 57 regular-season contests, providing solid play in all zones.

  • Wild's Matt Dumba: Clear to play Friday

    Dumba (upper body) will be in the lineup for Friday's regular-season finale versus the Avalanche, Jessi Pierce of reports.

    Dumba will return to the lineup after a 12-game absence. This game will serve as a tune-up for him before the Wild open their first-round playoff series against the Blues next week. Jordie Benn will likely exit the lineup for Dumba's return.
