Brenden Dillon, D
Hometown: Surrey, BC
Undrafted – Signed as free agent
May 2013- Dillon certainly made an impact in his rookie season. He played in every game, and every situation, but had just eight points for Dallas. His physical presence is where he really made his impact, literally. Dillon had 133 hits, 74 blocked shots, and 65 PIM, in just 48 games. Rex Doty
February, 2013 – Dillon has made the jump from the AHL to the NHL quite well. He has four points at this time and is a plus-4 rating. He’s clearly not out of place. He has provided a decent amount of PIMs with 20 in 17 games so far and continues to see time in all situations. Tim Graveline
March 2012 – Dillon was one of those late bloomer players due to the time needed to grow into his size. He has stepped up his physical presence since the beginning of his junior years and now is using his size to his advantage. He has a good head on his shoulder, seeing the game with a strong hockey IQ. Dillon can move the puck although will not be relied upon to produce offensive numbers at the NHL level.
Dillon is a strong, rangy D-man that likes physical play yet limited on offensive side.
