Fantasy Summary

There’s a chance Heatherington progresses his offensive production, but he’ll likely be a bottom-pairing guy who’s counted on to shut down opponents.

July 2017 – The heavy defenseman was traded to the Stars in March for Lauri Korpikoski. With all the depth the Stars have, there is little chance Heatherington ever sees time with Dallas. At 22, his only value would be physicality, as he produces few points. Matt Kowalski

May 2015 – Heatherington had another decent year with the WHL’s Swift Current Broncos. He’s not heavily relied upon for his offensive, but still put up an admirable 15 points in 48 regular season games. At 6-4, he uses his frame well and pushes offensive opponents around. Heatherington also played on Canada’s WJC U20 team and received his first taste of professional hockey with two games in the AHL. He’ll likely spend the next season in the AHL, where he’ll develop his professional game a bit more. – Chris Bagwell

 

April 2014 – Heatherington continues to improve in his third full season with the Swift Current Broncos of the WHL. He finished this season with 35 points in 70 games, third amongst the team’s defense and his highest point total yet. He led the squad with a plus-24 rating and contributed 63 PIMs. The Broncos were eliminated in the Eastern Conference quarterfinals by the Calgary Hitmen in 5 games.  Chris Bagwell

June 2013 – Poise and responsible are two qualities that define defensive stalwart Dillon Heatherington. He isn’t going to light up the scoreboard from the back end but you can certainly expect him to play tough minutes against the opposition’s top lines. Heatherington is an extremely mobile defenseman with a suffocating defensive game showing great gap control, positioning and stick check. He is an intelligent player who makes few gaffes as he rarely attempts to force a play. The big mobile defender posted four goals and 27 points in 71 games for the Swift Current Broncos during his draft season. Brendan Ross
