Report: Coyotes sign Dumba to 1-year, $3.9M deal

The Arizona Coyotes signed unrestricted free-agent defenseman Matt Dumba to a one-year deal worth $3.9 million, reports PHNX Sports’ Craig Morgan.

Dumba has spent his entire 10-season NHL career with the Minnesota Wild. He put up four goals and 14 points in 79 games this past season while averaging 21:17 minutes of ice time per contest, his lowest since 2016-17.

The 29-year-old also racked up 104 hits and 116 blocks in 2022-23.

Dumba just played out the final season of a five-year, $30-million deal. He was rooted in trade speculation for much of the 2022-23 campaign.

His best statistical season came in 2017-18 when he totaled 14 goals and 50 points in 82 games, but his underlying numbers have taken a hit in recent seasons. The Wild were outscored with Dumba on the ice at five-on-five in five consecutive campaigns, per Natural Stat Trick.

Dumba has amassed 79 tallies and 157 helpers in 598 NHL games, as well as 15 points in 49 playoff contests. Minnesota selected him with the seventh overall pick in 2012.
