Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Matt Dumba
Matt Dumba was born on July 25, 1994 in Regina, Saskatchewan. The 6’0 defenseman was playing for the WHL’s Red Deer Rebels before he was drafted by the Minnesota Wild in the first round, 7th overall, in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

In his rookie year in the WHL, he helped the Rebels by scoring 15 goals and 26 points. This led to him winning the Jim Piggott Memorial Trophy as the WHL’s Rookie of the year. Dumba would play two more seasons in Red Deer before he got his first taste of the NHL for the 2013-14 season. Dumba would make the Wild’s roster on opening night where he made his NHL debut on October 5, 2013 in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Anaheim Ducks. He later would score his first career NHL goal on October 12, 2013 in a 5-1 victory over the Dallas Stars.

After 13 games in the NHL, the Wild decided to loan Dumba to Hockey Canada to play in the 2014 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships. After the tournament, Dumba’s WHL rights were traded from Red Deer to the Portland WInterhawks, where he would be assigned to for the rest of his season. During the 2014-15 season, Dumba would make a more permanent impact on professional hockey as he split the year with the Minnesota Wild and their AHL affiliate, the Iowa Wild.

Dumba would set new career-highs in goals, assists and points during the 2015-16 season, finishing the year with 10, 16 and 26 respectively, while providing the Wild with a physical presence on the back end.

On the international stage, Dumba has represented Canada numerous times. He would captain the Under 18 National Team at the 2011 Ivan Hilinka Memorial Tournament where they would win the gold medal. He would also represent Canada at the 2012 IIHF World Under 18 Championship where they would win the bronze medal, and help Canada to a fourth place finish at the 2014 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships. He also helped his homeland to victory at the 2016 World Championship.
