Dumba will be a restricted free agent July 1, and the Wild may want to make room for defenders like Mike Rielly, Christian Folin and Gustav Oloffson.

Matt Dumba was limited to just 9:29 of ice time in Game 3, but it wasn't because coach John Torchetti was unhappy with his performance.

He posted a plus-2 rating and one assist in Minnesota's 5-3 victory over Dallas. "Comes with matchups," Torchetti explained. "If they're double shifting [Jamie] Benn, if they go Benn's line and then go third line and then come back with [Jason] Spezza's line, then we're going to come back with our top two guys, so if they're going 1-2-3, 1-2-3, 1-2-3, and if that matchup's not there, we're going to come down to our matchup. So it usually comes down to matchups."
