Brenden Dillon has no goals and five assists in 49 games this season.

When Dillon broke into the NHL with Dallas he was playing a big role, but that's declined in recent years. In 2013-14 for example, he had 17 points in 80 games while averaging 21:06 minutes, but so far this season he's logging just 16:11 minutes per contest. He's still a decent source of penalty minutes (35) and hits (114) though.

Brenden Dillon is expected to play on a pairing with David Schlemko this season.

After the Sharks acquired Roman Polak from the Maple Leafs last season, he and Dillon formed a physical pairing for the Sharks. Now, with Polak gone, it sounds like Dillon and Schlemko will have an opportunity to play together. The Sharks signed Schlemko this summer after he played the last season in New Jersey. Expect this to be a solid defensive pairing, but neither player will provide much in terms of standard fantasy value.

Brenden Dillon is participating in his first Conference Final and he doesn't plan on taking it for granted.

"It's unreal," Dillon said. "It's crazy to think of guys like Pauly Martin or Brent Burns, these guys that have been in the league 11, 12 years, and this is the furthest they've gotten in their careers. I think the biggest thing for the younger guys that are having our first taste of playoff hockey ... every shift is so important and every game is big, but enjoy it too. It's pretty cool." He has skated in 13 games during the Sharks' current playoff run and he hasn't picked up a point yet.
