• Dumba was named captain of Team Canada at the 2012 Under-18 World Championships. He led the tournament in scoring with 12 points (5-7--12) in seven games and was named the Best Defenseman of the competition en route to capturing a bronze medal. He was also one of five draft-eligible players, and the youngest, invited to Canada’s 2012 World Junior Championship camp.

• In 2011-12, he led all WHL defensemen in scoring with 20 goals and ranked sixth with 57 points (20-37--57) in 69 games. His nine power-play goals ranked first on the Red Deer Rebels.

• He was selected as the Western Hockey League’s Rookie of the Year in 2010-11 after he led the Rebels in rookie scoring with 26 points (15-11--26). His 15 goals ranked first among rookie defensemen and tied for seventh overall in the league.

• Dumba captained Canada at the 2011 Under-18 Ivan Hlinka Memorial recording three points (2-1--3) in five games and helping Canada capture gold -- he lists winning the gold as his most memorable hockey moment saying “I’ve dreamed about wearing the Team Canada jersey since I was little”.

• He started skating at four years old after his dad built a rink in their backyard. He lists his dad as the biggest influence on his career because “he has supported him through everything”.

• A Crowchild minor hockey product, he spent the 2009-10 season at the Edge Sports School where he was named to the Midwest Prep Hockey League All-Star Team after recording 44 points (16-28--44) in 41 games.

• Dumba credits former NHLer and current Red Deer coach Jesse Wallin as the biggest influence in his development: “In the last year and a half I’ve learned so much from him, which has elevated my game to the player I am today. We are always talking, and looking for ways to improve.”
