Dillon posted five PIM and a hit across 23:00 in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Wild. In his sixth game since being traded to the Capitals, Dillon dropped the gloves against Minnesota's Ryan Hartman. The 29-year-old blueliner has yet to record a point with his new club, but he's dished out 13 hits and recorded 13 total PIM thus far. He's a stay-at-home defenseman, but he works on a pairing with John Carlson, so he should continue to log big minutes going forward.
The Sharks have traded Dillon to the Capitals for a 2020 second-round pick and a 2021 conditional third-round pick. The Sharks retained 50 percent of his $3.270 million cap hit. Dillon is a coveted left-handed shot defenseman who is known more for his defensive abilities than offensive upside. The 29-year-old has 14 points through 59 games, but he's racked up a whopping 178 hits and a solid 51.7 Corsi For percentage. He's expected to work on the second pairing and will be an unrestricted free agent in July.
Dillon managed an assist, four hits and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Oilers. The 29-year-old has three assists in five games since the All-Star break. Dillon is up to 14 points, 167 hits and 79 PIM in 55 outings -- the physicality is more likely to get fantasy owners' attention than his modest scoring.
Dillon earned an assist in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Canucks. Dillon collected the secondary helper on Tomas Hertl's opening tally in the first period. Through 11 games in January, Dillon posted three assists, 30 hits and 21 PIM. He's at 13 points, 159 hits and 73 PIM overall this season. While he's not particularly skilled on offense, he's produced enough to be worth a look in deeper fantasy formats.
