The Minnesota Wild have been struggling to get anything going in the organization for the last couple of years.
They were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs for three years in a row, didn't make the playoffs last year and followed that up with an elimination during the qualifying round this year.
New general manager Bill Guerin is looking to give the team a fresh start and has apparently put one of their star players on the trade block.
According to Wild insider Michael Russo, the Wild are actively shopping defenseman Matt Dumba.
The news comes pretty much just hours after he was awarded the 2019-20 King Clancy Award winner.
The right shot defenseman is known for his offensive skill and scored more than 10 goals four years in a row including 12 in 32 games last year before only scoring six in this years shortened season.
He has no trade protection and at 26 years old is signed through the 2022-23 season at an AAV of $6million.
Michael Russo: “I am hearing from a lot of sources that the Minnesota Wild are shopping Matt Dumba.” #MNWild
