ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Mathew Dumba has enjoyed his time in Red Deer, Alberta, crediting his three seasons for the Red Deer Rebels in the Western Hockey League for his growth as a player. Dumba, the Minnesota Wild's first-round draft choice in 2012, knows he may be returning to Red Deer, the small Canadian town located between Edmonton and Calgary. But he has designs on playing his 2012-13 season in a more heavily populated locale. From a hockey-playing perspective, three years in Red Deer and junior hockey was enough for Dumba. "It's a great city, it's taught me so much," Dumba said Tuesday, in town this week for the Wild's development camp. "But I'm ready to come to the big city." Dumba has played three seasons with the Rebels, and his success in Red Deer drove Minnesota to make him the seventh-overall pick in the draft last summer. A 6-foot, 185-pound defenseman with a big right-handed shot, Dumba had 20 goals and 37 assists two years ago before being drafted by the Wild. Follow...
