Surrey's Brenden Dillon has cracked the roster of the National Hockey League's Dallas Stars.

The six-foot-three, 210-pound defenceman was called up from the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League when NHL lockout was lifted Jan. 13, and was still with the team when it played its first game six days later in Dallas against the Phoenix Coyotes.

Dillon has suited up for all three games with Dallas, collecting a pair of minor penalties and averaging 16 minutes of ice time per game.

He began this season with the AHL's Texas Stars, his third in Cedar Park, Texas. After playing 10 games in 2010-11 following the conclusion of his final year of Junior hockey with the Seattle Thunderbirds of the Western Hockey League, Dillon suited up for all 76 games with the Stars in 2011-12, scoring six times and adding 23 assists while assessed 119 minutes in penalties. He was called up to the Dallas Stars in April, seeing action in one NHL game.

During the NHL lockout, he played 37 games with Texas this season, scoring three times and adding 11 assists to go with 72 penalty minutes.
