One of the top defenseman for the 2012 NHL draft is Matt Dumba. Doesn't seem to have his own thread yet, so I thought I would start one. I've only had a chance to see him live once and I really liked what I saw. Big right handed shot that hits like a truck and skates very well. A very physical edge to his game that has translated very well from Bantam into the WHL. Here's a little article about him from Dan Sallows today: http://dansallows.com/interview-mathew-dumba/ A couple videos of him from the last 2 seasons: I like the Dion Phaneuf comparison quite a bit. To me he reminded me quite a bit of PK Subban too. Both pretty big guys, right handed shots that are both very solid both ways. Also both like to lower the boom every once in a while as well. Dumba might be the best open ice hitter in the WHL right now as a 16 year old. That's pretty impressive. I think that's why he draws a lot of comparisons to Phaneuf.
