Top Brenden Dillon News

  • Devils' Brenden Dillon: Inks three-year contract

    Dillon (hand) signed a three-year, $12 million contract with New Jersey on Monday, according to Sportsnet's Luke Gazdic.

    Dillon compiled eight goals, 20 points, 79 shots on net, 111 blocked shots and 241 hits in 77 regular-season contests with Winnipeg in 2023-24. He will provide the Devils with some depth on the blue line and could be a veteran partner for Simon Nemec. The 33-year-old Dillon missed the final two games of Winnipeg's first-round series against Colorado after suffering a cut to his hand by a skate. Still, he should be ready for training camp in the fall.

  • Jets' Brenden Dillon: Ruled out for Game 5

    Dillon (hand) will not be available against Colorado for Game 5 on Tuesday, John Lu of TSN reports.

    Dillon is stuck in a 12-game goal drought during which he has recorded four assists, 10 shots on goal and 45 hits while averaging 19:49 of ice time per contest. With Dillon sidelined, Logan Stanley stepped into the lineup for Game 4 and figures to remain in that role heading into Tuesday's contest.

  • Jets' Brenden Dillon: Out Sunday

    Dillon (hand) won't play Sunday against the Avalanche, Mitchell Clinton of the Jets' official site reports.

    While Dillon has been ruled out for Game 4, there's a chance he could return Tuesday when the Jets return home for Game 5. Still, it's a tough blow for Winnipeg -- the veteran blueliner had three assists through the first three games of the series. Logan Stanley is expected to work on the second pairing in Dillon's absence.

  • Jets' Brenden Dillon: Questionable for Sunday

    Dillon (hand) didn't suffer any muscle or tendon damage after being cut by a skate during a scrum at the end of Friday's 6-2 loss to Colorado in Game 3. Although it's great news that he didn't sustain a more serious injury, the 33-year-old defenseman did require stitches and remains questionable for Game 4 versus the Avalanche on Sunday, Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports Saturday.

    Dillon has three assists, four PIM, 12 hits and six blocks while averaging 21:04 of ice time across three playoff contests this year. He also accumulated eight goals, 20 points, 92 PIM, 241 hits and 111 blocks in 77 regular-season outings. If Dillon can't play Sunday, Logan Stanley will likely draw into the lineup.

  • Jets' Brenden Dillon: Suffers hand injury

    Dillon suffered a hand injury at the end of Friday's 6-2 loss to Colorado in Game 3, according to Mitchell Clinton of the Jets' official site.

    There were fisticuffs at the final buzzer, and Dillon picked up roughing minors against Jack Johnson and Brandon Duhaime. Coach Rick Bowness said after the game that there was no update on Dillon's status as the defenseman was still being evaluated. If Dillon is unavailable for Sunday's Game 4 matchup, Logan Stanley or Colin Miller could be inserted into the lineup.

  • Jets' Brenden Dillon: Generates assist Tuesday

    Dillon logged an assist and three hits in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Avalanche in Game 2.

    Dillon already has three helpers over two playoff games -- he logged just one assist across his last nine regular-season outings. The 33-year-old defenseman is better known for his physical and defensive play than his offense, though he put up 20 points, 241 hits and 111 blocked shots in 77 contests during the regular season. He should continue to see time on the Jets' second pairing.

  • Jets' Brenden Dillon: Earns pair of helpers

    Dillon notched two assists, three hits, two blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in Sunday's 7-6 win over the Avalanche in Game 1.

    Dillon did his job well defensively and still had enough in the tank to help out on goals by Josh Morrissey and Adam Lowry. This was Dillon's first multi-point effort since Nov. 18. The veteran defenseman had 20 points, 241 hits, 111 blocked shots and 92 PIM over 77 regular-season appearances, offering some toughness in a top-four role.

  • Jets' Brenden Dillon: Ready to play

    Dillon (rest) will play in Sunday's postseason tilt against Colorado, Tracey Myers of NHL.com reports.

    Dillon missed Thursday's matchup with the Canucks due to rest and will be fine to assume his usual top-four role against the Avalanche. He finished the regular season with eight goals and 20 points through 77 contests.

  • Jets' Brenden Dillon: Sitting Thursday

    Dillon (rest) will sit out Thursday's regular-season finale at home against Vancouver, per Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press.

    Dillion was a physical force throughout the regular season, recording 241 hits and 111 blocked shots. The 33-year-old also registered eight goals and 12 assists in 77 games this year. Look for him to skate in a top-four role during the playoffs.

  • Jets' Brenden Dillon: Returns to lineup

    Dillon registered a hit and a plus-3 rating in a 5-2 win over the Sabres on Sunday.

    After missing the last game with an illness, Dillon returned to his regular spot on the second pairing with partner Neal Pionk. Dillon finished with two shots, one hit, one blocked shot and a plus-3 rating in 17:47 of ice time. He can be a solid depth piece or streamer in deeper leagues for his contribution in hits -- he has 30 hits in his last eight games -- but his lack of offensive production limits Dillon's fantasy value.

  • Jets' Brenden Dillon: Ready to rock

    Dillon (illness) will return to the lineup Sunday against Buffalo, per Mitchell Clinton of the Jets' official site.

    Dillon sat out Saturday's 5-3 win over Carolina. His return could bump Logan Stanley to the press box as a healthy scratch. Dillon has accounted for seven goals, 16 points, 79 PIM, 73 blocked shots and 166 hits in 55 contests this campaign.

  • Jets' Brenden Dillon: Dealing with illness

    Dillon (illness) won't play Saturday versus Carolina, per Ken Wiebe of The Winnipeg Free Press.

    Logan Stanley will draw into the lineup due to Dillon's absence. The 33-year-old Dillon has seven goals, 16 points, 79 PIM, 73 blocked shots and 166 hits in 55 contests this campaign.

  • Jets' Brenden Dillon: Scores Tuesday

    Dillon scored a goal on two shots and delivered four hits in Tuesday's 4-2 win over St. Louis.

    Dillon extended Winnipeg's lead to 2-0 midway through the second period, beating Joel Hofer with a slapshot off an offensive-zone faceoff. It's the first point in 12 games for Dillon, whose last goal came Jan. 9. He's up to seven goals, a new career high, and 16 points through 54 games this season. While the 33-year-old blueliner won't offer much offensively, he certainly brings some physicality, having racked up 162 hits and 72 blocked shots on the campaign.

  • Jets' Brenden Dillon: Eligible to play Saturday

    Dillon has served his three-game ban and will be available to face Vancouver on Saturday.

    Dillon's return figures to see Logan Stanley relegated back to the press box. For his part, the 33-year-old Dillon was stuck in a seven-game pointless streak prior to his suspension and probably shouldn't be expected to offer much in the way of offensive upside moving forward.

  • Jets' Brenden Dillon: Given three-game ban

    Dillon has been suspended three games for an illegal check to the head of Pittsburgh's Noel Acciari in Tuesday's game.

    Dillon hit Acciari high in the neutral zone, causing an injury to the Penguins forward. The three-game suspension will see Dillon miss the rematch against the Penguins on Saturday as well as Thursday's game versus the Flyers and next Wednesday's tilt versus the Sharks. He'll be eligible to return Feb. 17 versus the Canucks. Logan Stanley figures to fill in on the third pairing while Dillon is serving the suspension.

  • Jets' Brenden Dillon: Hearing scheduled with NHL

    Dillon has a hearing scheduled with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Wednesday after receiving a match penalty during Winnipeg's 3-0 loss to Pittsburgh on Tuesday, Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.

    Dillon was assessed the penalty early in the second period after delivering a high hit to Noel Acciari, who needed help getting off the ice and missed the remainder of the contest due to an upper-body injury. Dillon has six goals, 15 points, 65 PIM, 116 hits and 66 blocks in 48 outings in 2023-24. Logan Stanley might draw into the lineup Thursday for the first time since Dec. 12 if Dillon's suspended.

  • Jets' Brenden Dillon: Slated to play

    Dillon (back) is expected to play Tuesday versus Pittsburgh, according to Mitchell Clinton of the Jets' official site.

    Dillon expects to play in Tuesday's contest after leaving Winnipeg's 4-2 loss to Toronto on Jan. 27 early due to a back injury. The 33-year-old rearguard has accounted for six goals, 15 points, 46 shots on net, 66 blocked shots and 115 hits in 47 games this season.

  • Jets' Brenden Dillon: Won't finish contest

    Dillon (upper body) won't return to Saturday's game versus the Maple Leafs.

    Dillon was hurt in the first period Saturday, though the severity of his injury is unknown. He may benefit from the upcoming All-Star break, as the Jets don't play again until Feb. 6 versus the Penguins.

  • Jets' Brenden Dillon: Injury clarified

    Dillon left Saturday's game versus the Maple Leafs with a back injury, Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.

    Head coach Rick Bowness added that Dillon's injury is unlikely to be a long-term issue. The Jets are not expected to practice until Feb. 4 since they are now on their bye week ahead of the All-Star break. Dillon's status for the Jets' next game versus the Penguins will likely be determined closer to that contest's Feb. 6 date.

  • Jets' Brenden Dillon: Picks up helper on game-winner

    Dillon notched an assist and three hits in Thursday's 2-1 win over the Blackhawks.

    Dillon has a goal and four assists over his last seven contests. He helped out on Nikolaj Ehlers' go-ahead goal with 1:05 left in the third period Thursday, which was enough to earn the win. Dillon's recent play on offense is not the norm for him, but he's having a strong campaign. The 33-year-old is at 15 points, 38 shots on net, 105 hits, 62 blocked shots, 51 PIM and a plus-17 rating through 41 appearances, putting him on pace for career-high numbers on offense for the second year in a row.
