A Wild Birthday Milestone For Dumba

Courtesy:  Minnesota Star Tribune
Time to dust off the keyboard and do a bit of blogging for the first time in what seems like way too much time off.

As Mathew Dumba today celebrates his 18th birthday, I figured it would be a good idea to catch up with the star Red Deer Rebels defenceman. 

From playing at the World U-18's (becoming the first blueliner to lead the tournament in scoring), to being selected 7th overall by Minnesota at the NHL Entry Draft, to skating at the Wild's summer development camp and signing his entry level contract... "off-season" hasn't been a part of Dumba's vocabulary.

Long Weekend Look Back

Good Tuesday, everyone.  Hope you all had a fun and safe Canada Day long weekend!

The personal highlight for me was being able to watch all four CFL games from start to finish (two of which I watched on TV, the other two I attended in person).  Sadly, I was 1/4 with my predictions (BC was my only correct pick).  Here's how my initial power rankings look...

1.  BC (1-0)
2.  Saskatchewan (1-0)
3.  Calgary (1-0)
4.  Edmonton (1-0)
5.  Toronto (0-1)
6.  Winnipeg (0-1)
7.  Montreal (0-1)
8.  Hamilton (0-1)
