Observations:

April 2016 – Dumba looked more comfortable than he did in the playoffs last year but even so, his ice time didn’t reflect it. He finished with two helpers and six PIMs through six games with the Stars. More playing time would’ve been good but in this case coach Torchetti’s sheltering of their prized young rearguard wasn’t a bad move given the potent Stars' offense. Edric Joseph

March 2016 – Since coming out of the all-star break swinging, Matt Dumba’s production has started to settle down. Though he managed to accumulate four points in his first six games of March he has since managed to go pointless in his last three appearances. Through it all his power play time and shot count have been erratic, making him a depth option at best in the immediate future. Edric Joseph

February 2016 – After a brief dry spell, the Matthew Dumba show has continued with his offensive production resuming as fantasy owners hoped with a goal and an assist against the Edmonton Oilers. This season has had it’s share of peaks and valleys but Brodin’s recent broken foot ought to mean more playing time to go around for the next three to six weeks. Dumba has been a different player since the all-star break and while still prone to lapses in judgement, he is starting to look more like the player fantasy hockey general management were hoping for. Let’s see if this reforming Dumba remains, but in any event remember him on draft day this fall. <
