Simply put, Dubnyk saved the Wild's season. The Wild came into the year with the highest expectations in team history, but shoddy goaltending left the team's confidence in ruins as it slid into last place. Enter Dubnyk, a 6' 5" former first-round pick who had been bouncing around the league over the past 18 months trying to live up to his potential. He was rock-solid, losing only once in his first month as Minnesota's new goalie, leading the team back into the middle of the playoff hunt. In hockey, teams only go as far as their goalie will take them, and Dubnyk's resurrection has Wild fans dreaming once again about a deep playoff run.
