Brenden Dillon netted his first goal in the National Hockey League NHL Friday night in Dallas.

The Surrey native beat Phoenix Coyotes goalie Mike Smith with a snapshot from the blue line 12 minutes into the game, giving the Dallas Stars a 2-0 win. The Stars would defeat Phoenix 4-3 in a shootout.

Dillon, in his first season in the NHL, also assisted on a first period goal by Antoine Roussel and completed his “Gordie How Hat Trick” with a fight with Kyle Chipchura in the second period.

The points were the first of his NHL career for the 22 year-old defenceman, a product of the Surrey Minor Hockey Association.
