Matt Dumba Out A Significant Time, Will Have Surgery

from TSN,

Wild general manager Paul Fenton told reporters Friday that Dumba's upper-body injury will require surgery and is expected to keep him out for a significant period of time.

"He is in a state of shock. He is visibly upset," Fenton said of the 24-year-old defenceman.

The Athletic's Michael Russo wrote earlier on Friday that if the injury ends up requiring surgery, it could end the his season. Even if surgery is required, the Wild are still holding out hope he could return toward the end of the year. He will continue to be evaluated over the course of the next week.

Fenton said he’d like to see how the team plays now before he makes any future decisions on #mnwild blue line. Mentioned Murphy and Belpedio as two right shots who could come up from the minors to play.

Fenton: “But it doesn’t mean that I’m not going to explore other opportunities here. I’m certainly looking at it, looking around the league and seeing what might be available.”

Matt Dumba Agrees To A Five-Year Deal With The Minnesota Wild

from Michael Russo of The Athletic,

As​ Sportsnet’s​ Elliotte​ Friedman​ reported​​ in the wee hours of the morning and The Athletic confirmed soon after, the Wild and Dumba will avoid a Monday arbitration date by agreeing to terms on a five-year, $30 million contract. The contract carries a $6 million cap hit and will make the 23-year-old defenseman the Wild’s third-highest paid player next season behind only Zach Parise and Ryan Suter. That would be dependent on restricted free agent Jason Zucker coming in at a lower price following his career-high 33 goals last season.

Last season, Dumba set career-highs in games played (82), goals (14), assists (36), points (50), game-winning goals (four), power-play assists (10), time on ice per game (23:48), shots (176), hits (136) and blocked shots (112).
