I've watched about five Red Deer Games earlier this season and Dumba has looked alright. He's got great speed and knows when/ how hard to shoot. I don't think he's been getting the 30+ minute games he was last year or so it seemed. Kinda seems like he went from a run-n-gun style to trying to reel it in and be a defensive force. Which is working. Showing two sides to his game while still leading is team in scoring from the blueline.
As for the WJC Canada is loaded on the back end more then anywhere else. Its going to be hard to earn a spot. That being said, Hockey Canada seems to LOVE Dumba. I think he's a lock due to the fact that HC thinks highly of the style he brings. At the same time, if he misses the team I don't think I'd be surprised its a good defence for Team Canada this year.
