07:15 AM ET 07.11 | The Wild's annual summer development camp began earlier this week with 36 prospects in town, some of whom may be playing for an NHL job in the fall, including hard-shooting, hard-hitting defenseman Matt Dumba. Dumba, the Wild's 2012 first-round pick who's still only 18 years old (birthday July 25), can't play in Iowa next season because he'll only be 19 (NHL rule with the Canadian Hockey Leauue). So it's Wild or WHL Red Deer. ... His objective is to make the Wild. The Wild kept him around the first eight days of last season so he could be a sponge, travel with the team, get a taste of the NHL even if he didn't get to play a game. ... The Wild will give him every chance to make the team or at least stick into the start of the regular season.

If he is Dumba will have to add 'ss" to his name.

I was tempted to say that, but I do not want a colonoscopy from the IRS for my troubles.
