Wild's Matt Dumba Is Top-Scoring Defenseman In NHLMore than seven years have passed since the Wild traded Brent Burns. Finally, there's a reason in Minnesota to stop wincing about dealing away one of the NHL's most potent defensemen. Matt Dumba leads all blue-liners in the league with 10 goals, a rate that translates to 34 scores over a full schedule. That's a staggering pace that would crush the franchise record, set by Burns with 17 goals in 2010-11, his final season with the Wild. It's doubtful Dumba can double that, but it's clear that the $30 million, five-year contract the Wild gave him prior to this season was a worthy investment.
