Dillon Heatherington: Signs with KHL club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heatherington agreed to terms on a one-year contract with Barys Nur-Sultan (KHL) on Monday.

In 59 games with AHL Texas last season, Heatherington registered two goals and 12 helpers but was never called up to join Dallas. Selected by the organization with the 50th overall pick in the 2013 NHL Draft, the 25-year-old blueliner has just 11 NHL games under his belt in which he notched two assists, 26 PIM and 11 shots while averaging 10:33 of ice time. At this point, it would likely take an exceptional season overseas for Heatherington to earn another shot at an NHL roster, and even then, he would likely need to settle for a two-way deal.

Stars' Dillon Heatherington: Re-ups with Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heatherington re-signed Tuesday with the Stars on a one-year, two-way contract.

Dallas will keep Heatherington in the fold and presumably allow him to compete for a third-pairing role in training camp after he logged 11 games at the NHL level between the past two seasons. Should he fail to win a spot on the Stars' opening-night roster, the 24-year-old would likely report to AHL Texas, where he tallied two goals and 22 assists across 73 games in 2018-19.

Stars' Dillon Heatherington: Issued qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heatherington received a qualifying offer from the Stars on Tuesday.

The 25-year-old played just five games in the regular season at the NHL level, but was able to make his postseason debut for Game 5 against St. Louis. He likely won't be a fantasy contributor next season, as evidenced by his two career assists in 11 NHL games.

Stars' Dillon Heatherington: Making playoff debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heatherington will slot into the lineup for Friday's Game 5 matchup against the Blues, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Friday will mark Heatherington's first action in an NHL playoff game, as he'll slot into the third line in place of the injured Joel Hanley (upper body). The Alberta native has spent most of the 2018-19 campaign in the minors, but has logged one assist, a plus-4 rating and six hits over five games with the big club while averaging 10:11 of ice time.

Stars' Dillon Heatherington: Drops back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heatherington was reassigned to AHL Texas on Sunday, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

Heatherington averaged 10:11 through five games, dishing out six hits and recording a plus-4 rating. It appears either Marc Methot (lower body) or Roman Polak (illness) will be ready to play Monday versus the Blue Jackets.

Stars' Dillon Heatherington: Promoted to NHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heatherington was called up from AHL Texas on Friday.

The Stars placed another defenseman in Connor Carrick (foot) on injured reserve Thursday, so Heatherington figures to be on hand for Saturday's road game against the Capitals. However, there's no guarantee he makes his season debut with the parent club since Julius Honka and Roman Polak are available as a third-pairing cohort.

Stars' Dillon Heatherington: Placed on waiver wire
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Stars waived Heatherington on Thursday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

As a second-round (50th overall) pick to Columbus in the 2013 draft, Heatherington's prospect status is fading quickly. He signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Stars in July, but there's been nothing to suggest that he'll be anything more than an organizational tweener in the upcoming season.

Stars' Dillon Heatherington: Earns two-way contract with Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heatherington signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Stars on Monday.

The 6-foot-4 blueliner appeared in six games with Dallas last season, registering one assist and 26 penalty minutes. Heatherington spent most of his season with AHL Texas, scoring three goals and 17 points for the minor league club. He'll have a shot to make the NHL roster to start the 2018-19 campaign but likely won't have a big enough role to earn any fantasy attention.

Stars' Dillon Heatherington: Likely to garner contract extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heatherington was presented with a qualifying offer from the Stars on Monday.

Fitting the mold of a shutdown blueliner, Heatherington was acquired by the Stars in a trade with the Blue Jackets last March. He flashed some serious puck skills in the WHL between 2010-15, but no one will be mistaking Heatherington for John Klingberg in Dallas, and his lack of experience at the top level (six games) is reason enough to avoid him in all fantasy leagues until further notice.

Stars' Dillon Heatherington: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heatherington was dropped down to AHL Texas on Sunday, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

Heatherington played in just six games at the NHL level this season, recording just one assist. The 22-year-old blueliner will join AHL Texas as the team gets ready for the Calder Cup playoffs.

Stars' Dillon Heatherington: Bumped up to highest rank
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heatherington was called up from AHL Texas on Wednesday.

A notable prospect originally drafted by the Blue Jackets -- he was a second-rounder in 2013 -- Heatherington has been subjected to multiple call-ups this season. Currently, his playing time is directly linked to the health of Marc Methot, who has been dealing with an upper-body issue and is no lock to play in Wednesday's road game against the Maple Leafs.

Stars' Dillon Heatherington: Shipped back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heatherington was sent back to AHL Texas on Monday.

Although the demotion of Heatherington could be taken as a sign that Marc Methot (knee) is ready to go, the Stars are off until Friday's matchup with St. Louis, which likely means the 22-year-old Heatherington will be recalled prior to that tilt. When he is in the lineup, the defenseman is averaging a mere 11:47 of ice time. Until he can secure a more prominent role on the blue line, the Calgary native won't offer much in terms of fantasy value.

Stars' Dillon Heatherington: Back with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heatherington was recalled from AHL Texas on Monday.

In his limited NHL action so far, Heatherington has been more of an enforcer than a fantasy force. The 22-year-old has played four games with the Stars this year, and he's racked up 26 penalty minutes. The Canadian will likely stay with Dallas until Marc Methot is healthy, but he won't have much fantasy impact.

January 26, 2018 12:32 PM
Stars' Dillon Heatherington: Heads back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heatherington was reassigned to AHL Texas on Friday, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

Heatherington played the enforcer role in his first four NHL games, racking up 26 PIM and dishing out four hits. The 22-year-old blueliner will spend the All-Star break in minors, and he'll likely be called back up afterwards if Marc Methot (knee) can't get healthy in time.

Stars' Dillon Heatherington: Slated to make NHL debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heatherington is on track to make his NHL debut against the Blue Jackets on Thursday, according to Mike Heika of The Dallas Morning News.

This is based on the young defenseman showing up for morning skate and working alongside Stephen Johns on the third pair. Listed at 6-foot-4 and 220 pounds, Heatherington was originally drafted by the Blue Jackets (2015 second-rounder) before getting packaged in a trade for Lauri Korpikoski at last season's dealing deadline. He should bring a physical edge to Thursday's game, and it wouldn't be all that surprising if he puts an apple on the board. Heatherington has provided three goals and 10 helpers for AHL Texas this campaign.

Stars' Dillon Heatherington: Called up to highest level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heatherington was called up from AHL Texas on Saturday, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

Heatherington became property of the Stars when he was acquired in a trade with the Blue Jackets for Lauri Korpikoski -- who is now a free agent -- at last year's dealing deadline. The 22-year-old blueliner has compiled three goals, 13 points and 33 PIM over 39 games with the top development affiliate this campaign. He's been added to the parent-club roster with Marc Methot (knee) being moved to injured reserve.

Stars' Dillon Heatherington: Shipped off at deadline
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heatherington was sent packing to Dallas at Wednesday's NHL trade deadline, with forward Lauri Korpikoski coming back to the Jackets, Mark Stepneski of NHL.com reports.

The 21-year-old blueliner has shown precious little in the way of offensive upside, as he tallied just six points in 38 games for AHL Cleveland this year. However, Heatherington is a big, tough blueliner with second-round pedigree who could ultimately end up fitting in on a Dallas club that could use a shutdown blueliner or three. For now, he'll probably carry on in the minors, shifting over to AHL Texas.

Blue Jackets' Dillon Heatherington: Taken off injured non-roster list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heatherington (wrist) was cleared of injury and reassigned to AHL Cleveland on Wednesday, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

Heatherington, who was hurt during training camp, was placed on the injured non-roster list since the Blue Jackets were unable to send him down to the minors. Now that the blueliner is healthy, he will report to the Monsters. Given the positional depth ahead of him, it's unlikely the 21-year-old will be called up anytime soon, barring a string of injuries.

Blue Jackets' Dillon Heatherington: Lands on Injured Non-Roster list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heatherington (wrist) was placed by Columbus on the Injured Non-Roster list Tuesday.

Heatherington suffered a broken wrist in late September and with a month left until his scheduled return, the Blue Jackets designated him for the INR list to begin the season. The 21-year-old blueliner tallied three goals and 16 assists during the 2015-16 campaign; his first season-long stint in the AHL.

Blue Jackets' Dillon Heatherington: Suffers broken wrist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heatherington broke his wrist during training camp practice and will be out at least six weeks.

Heatherington securing a spot on the Blue Jackets' Opening Night roster have all but been eliminated and he will likely return to AHL Cleveland once healthy. The blueliner has yet to make his NHL debut, however given his production from the point in the minors last season, three goals and 16 assists, he will likely be on coach John Tortorella's short list should Columbus need a stand in during the 2016-17 campaign.
