  • Jets' Brenden Dillon: Eligible to play Saturday

    Dillon has served his three-game ban and will be available to face Vancouver on Saturday.

    Dillon's return figures to see Logan Stanley relegated back to the press box. For his part, the 33-year-old Dillon was stuck in a seven-game pointless streak prior to his suspension and probably shouldn't be expected to offer much in the way of offensive upside moving forward.

  • Jets' Brenden Dillon: Given three-game ban

    Dillon has been suspended three games for an illegal check to the head of Pittsburgh's Noel Acciari in Tuesday's game.

The three-game suspension will see Dillon miss the rematch against the Penguins on Saturday as well as Thursday's game versus the Flyers and next Wednesday's tilt versus the Sharks. He'll be eligible to return Feb. 17 versus the Canucks. Logan Stanley figures to fill in on the third pairing while Dillon is serving the suspension.

He's up to 13 points, 97 hits, 56 blocked shots, 49 PIM, 32 shots on net and a plus-13 rating through 37 appearances.

  • Jets' Brenden Dillon: Logs assist

    Dillon provided an assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Ducks.

    Dillon snapped an eight-game point drought with the helper. Prior to the slump, he had a stretch of seven points over seven games, but the hard-nosed blueliner was never going to sustain that scoring pace. He's collected eight points, 25 shots on net, 73 hits, 41 blocked shots, 38 PIM and a plus-8 rating through 26 outings this season. His fantasy value is low in standard formats, but Dillon can be a helpful depth piece in deeper formats that reward physical play.

Dillon has contributed in other ways during his scoring drought, compiling 28 hits, 20 PIM, 17 blocked shots, 13 shots on goal and a minus-1 rating on the season.
