Jets' Brenden Dillon: Dealt north of border
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington traded Dillon to Winnipeg in exchange for two second-round draft picks Monday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.

Dillon still has three years left on the four-year, $3.9 million AAV deal he signed with the Capitals last offseason. The 6-foot-4 blueliner scored 19 points with 143 hits in 56 games during the 2020-21 campaign. He averaged 18:57 of ice time and should secure a top-four role with the Jets as well.

Capitals' Brenden Dillon: Tallies in Game 1 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon scored a goal on two shots, doled out six hits and blocked three shots in Saturday's 3-2 overtime win over the Bruins in Game 1.

Dillon's long-range blast changed direction and beat Tuukka Rask at 8:44 of the second period. It was initially believed Alex Ovechkin deflected it in, but Dillon was ultimately credited with the goal. The 30-year-old blueliner had two goals, 19 points, 143 hits and 61 blocked shots with a plus-15 rating in 56 regular-season games as a steady defensive presence in the top four.

Capitals' Brenden Dillon: Notches assist Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon posted an assist and five shots during Friday's 4-2 loss to the Flyers.

The five shots on net were a season-high for Dillon, who has managed four assists in his last seven games. The 30-year-old has chipped in two goals, 19 points and an impressive plus-16 rating in 54 games this season while providing a steady physical presence on Washington's second defense pairing.

Capitals' Brenden Dillon: Bags apples Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon registered two assists, a plus-2 rating and four hits during Saturday's 6-3 win over the Islanders.

The two helpers snapped a five-game drought for Dillon, who has managed a goal and seven points in 13 games during the month of April. The rugged blueliner is having a solid campaign by his standards with two goals, 17 points and a plus-14 rating in 48 games during his first full season with the Capitals.

Capitals' Brenden Dillon: Two points in Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 4-3 win over the Sabres.

Both points came in the first period as Dillon helped the Capitals build a 2-0 lead. The 30-year-old only has two multi-point performances this season, but both have come in the last four games, and on the year he's recorded a modest two goals and 14 points.

Capitals' Brenden Dillon: Two helpers Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon notched two assists, one short-handed, in Sunday's 5-4 win over the Devils.

It's the first multi-point performance of the season for the veteran blueliner. Dillon has been his usual truculent self this season, racking up 89 hits and 44 blocked shots through 38 games in addition to one goal, 11 helpers, 33 shots on goal, 32 PIM and a plus-10 rating.

Capitals' Brenden Dillon: Notches helper Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon registered an assist and two blocked shots while logging 19:44 of ice time during Thursday's 4-3 win over the Devils.

Dillon ended a 10-game point drought with the helper, bringing him to nine points in 32 games on the season. The rugged blueliner is a valuable asset for the Capitals but does not generate enough offense to warrant fantasy consideration in standard formats.

Capitals' Brenden Dillon: Dishes helper Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon registered an assist, five PIM, a plus-2 rating and two hits during Sunday's 3-2 win over the Devils.

Dillon has assists in back-to-back games, bringing him to eight points and a plus-6 rating in 21 games thus far in his first full season with the Capitals. On pace for a career year offensively, the 30-year-old is starting to accrue some mainstream fantasy value.

Capitals' Brenden Dillon: Notches helper Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon tallied an assist and two hits during Saturday's 5-2 win over the Devils.

After failing to register a single point in 10 games with Washington upon acquisition in last season's trade deadline, Dillon has a goal and seven points in 20 outings with the Capitals to start 2020-21. The 30-year-old is looking like a sound investment for the Capitals brass and garners enough offensive production to be worth a look in deeper formats.

Capitals' Brenden Dillon: Extends point streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon registered an assist and two hits while logging 21:25 of ice time during Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Bruins.

Dillon has helpers in three straight games and five points on the season after failing to get on the scoresheet in any of his 10 games with the Capitals last season. The hot streak is a welcome sight for the Capitals after they extended the 30-year-old to a four-year, $15.9 million extension in October of 2020, but he is unlikely to continue this pace for much longer.

Capitals' Brenden Dillon: Notches helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon tallied an assist and two hits while logging 21:52 of ice time during Thursday's 6-3 win over the Islanders.

Dillon has helpers in consecutive outings, bringing him to four points and a plus-6 rating in his first eight games of the season. The 30-year-old is certainly not expected to sustain this pace for very long having never topped 22 points in a full campaign, so enjoy the offensive output while it lasts.

Capitals' Brenden Dillon: Pots goal Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon recorded a goal, a plus-3 rating, two hits and four blocked shots during Thursday's 6-4 win over the Sabres.

Dillon also accrued a five-minute major penalty for fighting with Sabres defenseman Jake McCabe late in the third period. With more time to get settled with the Capitals and a new four-year, $15.9 million contract in hand, the 30-year-old should improve on last season's total of 14 points, but he's not likely to produce enough offense to merit fantasy consideration outside of deeper leagues that count peripheral stats like hits and blocked shots.

Capitals' Brenden Dillon: Inks four-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon was re-signed to a four-year, $15.6 million extension on Tuesday.

The Capitals were eager to bring back Dillon following the 2019-20 season after acquiring the blueliner from San Jose in February. The 29-year-old posted a goal and 13 assists in 69 games during the 2019-20 season and, with Michal Kempny (Achilles) out for the foreseeable future, he could slot alongside John Carlson on the top defensive pairing. The burly defender is a solid contributor in peripheral categories liked blocked shots (67) and hits (178), but a lack of offensive production limits his upside in standard leagues.

Capitals' Brenden Dillon: Busy in defensive end
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon notched an assist and nine blocked shots in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Islanders in Game 2.

No other skater blocked more than four shots (Devon Toews of the Islanders), so Dillon was clearly leading the charge defensively. He also assisted on Alex Ovechkin's second-period tally. The helper was Dillon's first point in five postseason games. He's added 15 blocks, 13 hits and six shots on net.

Capitals' Brenden Dillon: Discussing extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Capitals general manager Brian MacLellan indicated on Friday he has been in contact with Dillon's representatives about a possible extension, JJ Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports.

MacLellan has acknowledged there is mutual interest in extending Dillon, who was acquired from the Sharks prior to February's trade deadline. The salary cap is expected to stay flat for the foreseeable future -- which, combined with Washington's existing cap crunch -- could make for a difficult time re-signing the 29-year-old shutdown defender.

Capitals' Brenden Dillon: Roughing it up in Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Capitals' Brenden Dillon: Heads east in trade
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Sharks' Brenden Dillon: Contributes helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Sharks' Brenden Dillon: Assists in consecutive games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Sharks' Brenden Dillon: Picks up helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon produced an assist, three hits and a plus-2 rating in Monday's 4-2 win over the Ducks.

The defenseman set up the second of Patrick Marleau's two tallies in the contest. Dillon is up to 12 points, 158 hits and 73 PIM through 51 games. He's no dynamo on offense, but the physicality could earn his attention in deeper fantasy formats.
