NHL Rumors: Surprising Team Now Pursuing Matt Dumba

The Arizona Coyotes have set their sights on bolstering their roster for the upcoming season, with defenseman Matt Dumba emerging as a top target.

As the team looks to become more competitive, acquiring Dumba would strengthen their defensive core. Known for his skills and contributions on both ends of the ice over his career, Dumba's addition would bring a solid presence to the Coyotes' blue line.

With their focus firmly on securing Dumba's services, the Coyotes' management, led by General Manager Armstrong, is actively pursuing negotiations.

They recognize the importance of shoring up their defensive depth and believe that Dumba's experience and skill set make him an ideal addition to their roster.

This past season, the 28-year-old recorded four goals and 14 points across 79 games played with the Minnesota Wild, his worst point total over his 10-year career.
