Of course, the folks at Battle of California have their unique reasons for picking Dumba. Mostly, he has an awesome name.

Not blessed with outstanding size or agility, Dumbo has an impressive wingspan nevertheless, and he isn't afraid to get his nose dirty every once in a while. No real hands to speak of, but given a little confidence, he can positively fly down the ice. And while his agent is a real rodent, the upside to this prospect is that he will pretty much play for peanuts.

The Minnesota Wild are on the clock as we move on to the No. 7 pick on Wednesday.
