      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Signing] Wild sign Matthew Dumba

Recommended Posts

Wild Inks Dumba To Entry-Level Deal:

Just a few days removed from Wild Development Camp, Minnesota has signed defenseman Matt Dumba to a three-year, entry-level contract.

The Wild’s first-round pick (7th overall) in June’s NHL Entry Draft was impressive in his first Development Camp with the team. Dumba had two of the best hits of the camp scrimmages, both occurring on Sunday after the prospects were put through a series of grueling on-and off-ice workouts throughout the week.

The 17-year-old (he turns 18 on July 25) becomes the youngest player under contract with the Wild. He is still eligible to return to his junior team, the Red Deer Rebels, if he doesn’t make Minnesota’s roster this fall.

With Red Deer, Dumba led all WHL defensemen in goals last season, posting 20. He also added 37 assists for 57 points in 69 games. The blueliner quarterbacked the power play, leading all Rebels with nine man-advantage goals last season. Dumba was the WHL’s Rookie of the Year in 2010-11 after he led the Rebels in rookie scoring (15-11=26).

Dumba's resume is full of international experience and leadership qualities. He captained Team Canada at the 2012 Under-18 World Championships, leading the tournament in scoring with 12 points (5-7=12) in seven games, being named the Best Defenseman of the competition and leading Canada to a Bronze Medal. The 6-foot and 185-pound defender also captained Canada at the 2011 Ivan Hlinka Memorial tournament, scoring two goals and an assist in five games, leading the Canadians to the gold medal.

That's awesome for him. I have been watching him in junior and when team Canada under 21's had their tryouts I was really hoping he would make the team. I thought he was really good in the camp and was devastated when he got cut from the team. He is going to be a force in the nhl one day and I will be proud to say I watched him develop. Way to go Mathew.
