Matt Dumba

Another blueliner that broke out in 2014-15 for the Wild was Dumba, who turned 21 over the summer. Dumba didn’t play much during his first stint with the big club last season, but following a recall from a stint with the farm team in Iowa, he found his confidence and was a threat from the point. By year’s end, he had eight goals and 16 points in 58 regular-season games, and another two goals and four points in ten playoff matches.

Dumba promises to be a dynamic threat from the defensive corps for years to come. Later last season he started seeing more time on the power play. Look for this trend to continue, and for Dumba to rack up some point totals worthy of inclusion on most fantasy rosters.
