Wild's Dumba Thriving In WHL

News: Mathew Dumba has two goals, eight points and is plus-17 in eight games for Portland in the Western Hockey League.
Analysis: Mathew Dumba was sent to the WHL after scoring one goal with one assist in 13 games in the NHL. He couldn't be sent to the AHL since he's 19 years old. The Wild's 2012 first-round draft pick should be in good position to win a spot on the Wild roster next season with a strong season in the WHL.

Wild Loan Dumba To Juniors For Rest Of Season

News: Mathew Dumba was loaned to WHL Portland on Tuesday, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: The Wild plan to keep him at the junior level for the rest of the season, as he'll be able to play regularly and further develop his game. The 19-year-old flashed some talent with two points in 13 games and will have his eye on winning a full-time role with the parent club in 2014.

Wild To Loan Dumba To Team Canada

News: Mathew Dumba is expected to be loaned to Team Canada for the World Junior Hockey Championship, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Mathew Dumba has mainly been a healthy scratch lately for the Wild, but would be possibly the only NHL player loaned to Team Canada for the World Juniors. He would likely leave the team within the next week and could be away through the conclusion of the tournament on Jan. 5.

Wild's Dumba Returns To Lineup Sunday

News: Mathew Dumba will return to the lineup Sunday against the Jets.
Analysis: Mathew Dumba has only played in one game out of Minnesota's last seven. He'll get a chance to play Sunday, but his inconsistent starts make him a very tough choice for fantasy. The 19-year-old defenseman has one goal and one assist over 10 games as he continues to work on his game in his rookie season.

Wild's Dumba Won't Play Wednesday

News: Mathew Dumba will be a healthy scratch Wednesday against the Maple Leafs, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Mathew Dumba will watch the game from the press box as Clayton Stoner (leg) checks back into the lineup. Dumba has one goal and one assist in 10 games this season, and the 19-year-old defenseman will continue to suit up inconsistently as he gets used to his first full season as a pro.

Wild's Dumba Activates Rookie Contract

News: Mathew Dumba was on the ice for 10:51 in Saturday's win over Carolina, but didn't have a point or shot on goal. He played his 10th NHL game which activates the first year of his contract.
Analysis: Mathew Dumba is likely to stay in the NHL the rest of the season as a result. He'll still likely sit most nights as he'll continue to develop and give the Wild depth on the blue line.

Dumba's Status Uncertain With Wild

News: Mathew Dumba played his ninth game in Monday's loss to Chicago. The Wild haven't said whether he'll play in a 10th game and activate the first year of his contract or be sent back to his juniors team, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Mathew Dumba struggled Monday, as he was on the ice for three goals, but he's generally had favorable reviews. The Wild may not worry about the 10-game limit because they want depth on the blue line; Dumba can't return to the NHL if he's sent back to play out the year with the Red Deer of the Western Hockey League.

Wild's Dumba Gets First NHL Goal

News: Mathew Dumba netted his first NHL goal in Saturday's win over the Stars. It came on the power play.
Analysis: He played just over 15 minutes of the game and was credited with three hits and two giveaways. He's going to be a critical building block for the Wild for the next decade or more. But he can still be returned to junior, so don't get overexcited about his single-year value just yet.

Wild's Dumba Won't Play Thursday

News: Mathew Dumba won't be active for Thursday's Wild season opener against the Kings, KFAN 100.3 FM Minneapolis reports.
Analysis: He may play in the Wild's second game. He can play nine games before the Wild would activate the first year of his contract. With him sitting out the first game, that may be an indication he's more likely to be sent to his juniors team. Mathew Dumba has upside since he was Minnesota's 2012 first-round draft pick, but it's not clear how large a role he'll have even if he stays in the NHL all season.

Wild's Dumba Likely To Stay In NHL

News: Mathew Dumba is likely to begin the season with the Wild for at least nine games after a strong preseason, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. He can play nine games before burning the first year of his contract.
Analysis: He'd be sent to his junior team if he doesn't stick on the NHL roster, as he can't be sent to the AHL without activating his contract. Mathew Dumba has upside since he was Minnesota's 2012 first-round draft pick, but it's not clear how large a role he'll have even if he stays in the NHL all season.

Wild's Dumba Scores Preseason Goal

News: Mathew Dumba scored a goal in Thursday's win over Winnipeg.
Analysis: Mathew Dumba, Minnesota's 2012 first-round draft pick, has a chance to win a spot on the Wild roster with a strong preseason. He played most of last season for the WHL Red Deer, recording 42 points in 62 games.

Wild's Dumba Could Win Roster Spot

News: Mathew Dumba has a strong chance to win a spot on the Wild roster in training camp, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: The Wild may keep eight defensemen, which would help open a spot for Mathew Dumba. The Wild's 2012 first-round pick played most of last season for WHL Red Deer, recording 42 points in 62 games. He has upside even at age 19 as he moves the puck adroitly and packs a massive point shot.

Dumba Recalled By Wild

News: The Wild have recalled Mathew Dumba from AHL Houston, 1500espn.com reports.
Analysis: Mathew Dumba -- the No. 7 overall pick in the 2012 NHL Draft -- played most of the season for WHL Red Deer, recording 42 points in 62 games. The blueliner also played in five postseason games for Houston, and he'll give the big club some added depth now that Houston has bowed out of the playoffs.

Wild Assign Dumba To AHL Houston

News: The Wild assigned Mathew Dumba to AHL Houston on Monday, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: The defenseman was the seventh overall pick by the Wild in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, but spent the 2013 season with the Red Deer Rebels of the WHL where he racked up 16 goals and 26 assists in 62 games.

Wild's Dumba Sent To Juniors

News: Mathew Dumba has been returned to Red Deer of the Western Hockey League for the rest of the season, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Mathew Dumba was with the Wild for the first four games, but didn't appear in a game. The seventh overall pick in the 2012 draft made a strong impression in training camp, which should increase his chances to make the Wild's 2013-14 roster.

Wild's Dumba To Be Scratched Saturday

News: Mathew Dumba is expected to be scratched for the Wild's opener Saturday night, according to Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
Analysis: We're assuming healthy scratch for now. The seventh overall pick from June has tons of upside, but the Wild are just healthy enough on the blue line that he can be the seventh defenseman and watch and learn in the opener. Being sent back to juniors is still a decent possibility, though Mathew Dumba can appear in five games this season before it has significant contract ramifications down the road for the Wild.

Wild's Dumba Looks Set to Make NHL Roster

News: Mathew Dumba looks set to begin the season on the Wild's NHL roster, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Mathew Dumba will add depth with Marco Scandella and Jonas Brodin hurt. It's not clear how much ice time he'll get or if the Wild will keep him past the first five games before the team is unable to return him to his junior hockey team. While he may be just kept around for an audition, the 2012 first-round pick has enough upside he's worth a look even in non-keeper leagues.

Wild's Dumba Shines In Scrimmage

News: Mathew Dumba made a strong impression in Monday's scrimmage and head coach Mike Yeo says he's keeping an open mind about him making the final roster, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "He has a great shot and he skates extremely well," Yeo said.
Analysis: The seventh overall pick in the 2012 draft, Mathew Dumba could make the final roster with the Wild having several injuries on the blue line. It's not clear if the Wild really want to activate his NHL contract, but so far they're not ruling it out. It's also possible he gets an audition in the first five games before the team is unable to return him to his junior hockey team.

Wild's Dumba To Attend Training Camp

News: Mathew Dumba has been called up from Red Deer of the Western Hockey League to attend training camp with the Wild, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: The seventh overall pick in the 2012 draft, Mathew Dumba had just 23 points in 41 games and is a minus-3 for Red Deer. However, he could win a spot on the NHL roster with the Wild having several injuries on the blue line as training camp begins. It's likely he'll just return to his junior team, but watch his progress in camp.

Wild's Dumba Could Get NHL Look

News: Mathew Dumba, the seventh overall pick in the 2012 draft, could contend for a spot on the Wild roster despite struggling for Red Deer of the Western Hockey League since Minnesota may be thin on the blue line, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Mathew Dumba had just 23 points in 41 games and is a minus-3for Red Deer. However, with several defensemen hurt, Dumba could be brought into training camp. He's a long shot to be in the NHL when the season starts, but this shows the Wild haven't soured on him despite a decline in production with his junior team (he had 67 points in 69 games last season).
