Wild Recall Dumba From Minors

News: Matt Dumba was recalled from AHL Iowa on Thursday, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Matt Dumba joined the Wild for Thursday's morning practice in Calgary, where the blueliner grew up. Coach Mike Yeo wouldn't say whether or not Dumba would enter the lineup in front of his hometown crowd, but it seems likely that he'd replace Christian Folin if that materializes.

Wild's Dumba To Stay In AHL

News: Mathew Dumba isn't likely to be recalled from AHL Iowa in the near future, the Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: "[Mathew Dumba's] ice time is so valuable down there," head coach Mike Yeo said. "The game is on his stick every game and [Iowa head coach John Torchetti] is doing a great job with him, so we'll keep letting him develop, and if we need him and we feel he can help us win, then we'll make that decision. But certainly we're very focused on his development too." When Dumba was sent to the AHL before the All-Star break, it was thought that he'd just get some additional playing time during the break. However, it now looks like Dumba will need an injury on the Wild's blue line to return to the NHL.

Wild's Dumba Sent to AHL Iowa

News: Mathew Dumba was sent to AHL Iowa after Tuesday's loss to Detroit, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: This may be less of a demotion and more of a way to keep him playing during the All-Star break. Mathew Dumba wasn't active for Tuesday's game, but could get more ice time in the NHL in the second half of the season. He had an assist and was plus-3 in three games in January.

Strong Return For Wild's Dumba

News: Mathew Dumba celebrated his return to the NHL with a goal and a plus-3 rating in Thursday's 7-0 romp over the Sabres.
Analysis: The shot was a terrifically nice one, beating the glove of Buffalo goalie Jhonas Enroth. But if we're honest with ourselves, an NHL goaltender is essentially expected to stop every shot from so far away -- Mathew Dumba fired from near the blue line. Hey, they all count. Dumba has cooled off following his hot start at AHL Iowa, but still owns a total of 12 points in 17 games there. The 2012 No. 7 overall pick has a ton of upside, but at just 20 years old, he's still a work in progress.

Dumba Recalled By Wild

News: The Wild have recalled Mathew Dumba from AHL Iowa, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Mathew Dumba, who has notched a goal and three assists in 20 games with the big club to date, returns to bolster the team's blue line, with Justin Falk and Marco Scandella having been placed on IR by the Wild.

Wild's Dumba Playing Well At AHL

News: Mathew Dumba was selected to take part in the AHL All-Star Game for AHL Iowa, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Mathew Dumba has 11 points and is plus-3 in 14 games for Iowa. He should be back up to the NHL at some point this season.

Wild's Dumba On Hot Streak In AHL

News: Mathew Dumba has four points (two goals, two assists) in four games since joining AHL Iowa. The Wild called up Justin Falk this week when needing a defenseman because they want Dumba to get more time in Iowa, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Mathew Dumba was sent to the AHL after some lapses on defense, but he could force his way back to the NHL roster if he stays hot in Iowa.

Wild Assign Dumba To AHL Iowa

News: The Wild assigned Mathew Dumba to AHL Iowa on Saturday, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Mathew Dumba, after playing just four minutes in Friday's game, will head to Iowa to see more ice time. He was replaced on the roster by fellow defenseman Justin Falk.

Wild's Dumba Headed To Bench

News: Mathew Dumba will likely be inactive Tuesday against the Devils, the Minneapolis Star Tribune's Michael Russo reports.
Analysis: Mathew Dumba has gone minus-4 in his last three games and has made some gaffes on defense, so he'll head to the bench, and it wouldn't be a surprise if he's sent to the AHL in the near future.

Wild's Dumba Notches First Goal

News: Mathew Dumba recorded his first goal of the season in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Stars.
Analysis: Mathew Dumba's second-period tally went down as the game-winner, after the goal gave the Wild a 2-0 edge. The 20-year-old blueliner probably won't produce any eye-popping numbers as a rookie, but the Wild view him as an integral player in their long-term plans.

Wild's Dumba Makes NHL Roster

News: Mathew Dumba has made the opening-night NHL roster for the Wild, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Wild's Dumba Registers Assist

News: Mathew Dumba had an assist and two shots on goal in 25 minutes of ice time in Thursday's exhibition loss to Pittsburgh.
Analysis: Mathew Dumba had a strong preseason game as he's trying to win a final spot on the blue line. Dumba is eligible to play in the AHL for the first time this season, so the Wild are thought to begin his season at AHL Iowa. However, a strong exhibition season could open a spot for him with Minnesota.

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 Assign Dumba To Team Canada

News: The Wild loaned Mathew Dumba to the Canadian Junior National Team for the IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship.
Analysis: The blueliner will join Team Canada in Sweden until January 5, at which point he will be eligible to return to the Wild. Mathew Dumba has one goal and one assist in 13 games this season.

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.
