Matt Dumba will make his NHL playoff debut Thursday at St. Louis.

"I had a conversation with him yesterday (to say) the game doesn't change," said coach Mike Yeo. "There's definitely more intensity and there's definitely more emotion and that's the big thing. As far as his game, he should have the same approach, the same preparation going into the game. His play without the puck I've been real pleased with. He has to make sure he has a strong focus on that." He averaged 15 minutes of ice time per game with the Wild during the regular season and he recorded 16 points in 58 contests.

Matt Dumba has taken advantage of his larger role and he's been playing his best hockey lately.

He has been averaging roughly 19 minutes per game over his past 11 appearances, while posting a plus-13 rating, four goals and 24 shots. "My confidence is really good right now," Dumba said. "Just making simple plays and trying not to force things, but when there is a chance to make a play, make it because I have the skills to do that, too."

Matt Dumba scored both Minnesota goals in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout victory over Ottawa.

Dumba's goals bring his total to six on the season, but he has added only four helpers in 39 outings, which means he's not worthy of being on a fantasy roster this season. Mikael Granlund drew assists on both goals in the win.

He scored his third goal of the season and played a strong game defensively. Dumba has played in 33 games this season and he is confident he can play at the NHL level. The 20-year-old defender shouldn't be on your fantasy radar at this time, though.

Mathew Dumba has been called up by the Wild.

Matt Dumba and Keith Ballard are expected to sit Friday night against Dallas, while Jonas Brodin makes his return.

Coach Mike Yeo benched Matt Dumba after his second period turnover led to a goal for Montreal on Saturday.

Dumba played only one more shift in the game after the costly mistake on Brendan Gallagher’s goal. Dumba is still just 20-year-old so mistakes will be a common occurrence with him. I don’t want to pin this just on him," Yeo said. "This is a young kid. He’s learning lessons." The former seventh overall pick in the 2012 draft has one goal and one assist in 12 games this season. He is more valuable in dynasty leagues than he is in standard fantasy leagues right now.

With the injury to Jared Spurgeon, Mathew Dumba is getting a chance to play on Minnesota' second power play.

Although he is not always a slam dunnk to dress, Dumba does have a considerable amount of offensive upside. The Wild can't afford to not play blueliners who can help with the man advantage as the they have been surprisingly ineffective when on the power play. Consider Dumba a solid short-term pickup.
