Wild Rumors: Insider Links Dumba to Western Conference Team

It appears that the Matt Dumba sweepstakes are heating up, as NHL insider Frank Seravalli listed the Vegas Golden Knights as a potential landing spot for the Minnesota Wild defenseman.

The Golden Knights have never been afraid to make a big trade, and adding Dumba would just be the latest. It is clear that Minnesota is looking to trade the right-shot defenseman, and his market is starting to heat up because of it. Now, it appears that Vegas is the newest team looking to bring him in.

Dumba would provide the Golden Knights with another top-four defenseman as they gear up for their playoff run. Overall, there seems to be a very good fit here, but we will have to wait and see if Vegas ends up being the club to successfully acquire him before this year's trade deadline passes. On paper, there appears to be a very good fit here, but there will be several other clubs looking to bring in the veteran from here.
