Playing careerEdit

Dickinson was rated as a top prospect who fulfilled the expectation to be a first round selection at the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, being chosen 29th overall by the Dallas Stars.[1][2] Dickinson joined the Guelph Storm of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) for the 2011–12 season and was recognized for his stand-out play when he was named to the OHL Second All-Rookie Team.[3] The following season he was invited to take part in the CHL Top Prospects Game, and was then selected to play with the gold medal-winning Canadian squad at the 2013 IIHF World U18 Championships.[4] In the 2013–14 season, Dickinson helped the Storm capture the OHL championship before losing to the Edmonton Oil Kings in the Memorial Cup finals.

On May 29, 2014, Dickinson signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Dallas Stars.[5] Upon completion of his junior season, on April 16, 2015, he was assigned to finish the 2014–15 season with Dallas' American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Texas Stars.

On April 7, 2016, in a game against the Colorado Avalanche, Dickinson made his NHL debut and scored his first NHL goal.[6]

Personal lifeEdit

Dickinson's younger brother Josh also plays hockey; he signed an entry-level contract with the Colorado Avalanche in 2018.[7] They are of Scottish and Caribbean heritage.[7]
