Sarah Mclellan revealed that "On April 5, during the Minnesota Wild's visit to the Nashville Predators, Dumba apparently broke a rib and dislocated another, and that caused a puncture to his lung. Looking back on the play that caused the injury, I would say that makes some sense."



Matt Dumba had a punctured lung, broken rib, separated rib and a broken finger still wanted to play for the Wild during the Stanley cup playoffs vs the St Louis Blues.

According to Matt Dumba, during his last media availability before the off-season, he would confirm his injuries and admitted playing with serious injuries vs St Louis.

"I felt ok enough to play so I did I wanted to compete and help my team."
