NHL free agency began on July 1st and has seen over 160 players sign new deals. Regarding the top free agents, Matt Dumba is still available as the defence market begins to thin out.
Dumba was initially ranked number 23 on Frank Seravalli’s 75 top free agents list but has since climbed to number three as players begin to be picked off the market. His position sits behind Vladimir Tarasenko and Patrick Kane.
Last season Dumba scored four goals and 14 points in 79 games with the Minnesota Wild and was held to a minus-8 rating. Plenty of rumours have swirled around the market about where the blueliner may end up, including the San Jose Sharks and the Arizona Coyotes.
Dumba’s 598 games played for the Wild have him ranked fifth among defencemen in team history, while his 79 goals rank second, and his 236 points rank third. This will be the blue liner’s first time as a free agent and bring his 10-year tenure in Minnesota to a close.
Here are more details from Daily Faceoff’s Anthony Trudeau on the contract:
