Watch: Wild’s Dumba scores own-goal with his head

Hockey player are often told to play with their heads. Minnesota Wild defenseman Matt Dumba took this literally on Wednesday and it didn’t work out in his team’s favor.

With the Wild leading 3-1, Flames forward David Jones takes a shot that’s heading wide. But then it ends up in the back of the net, all because Dumba used his head a little too much while trying to defend the play.
