Brenden Dillon returned to action Friday night after being sidelined since the end of the regular season with a lower-body injury.

He had 27 shifts and was on the ice for 20:18 and seemed to get through the contest without any setbacks. That said, Dillon was directly responsible for the Ducks' fourth and fifth goals in a 6-2 loss as he made a bad pass that led to a Jakob Silfverberg marker and was knocked off the puck by Corey Perry that led to a Ryan Getzlaf goal.

Brenden Dillon (lower body) will not return to Dallas' lineup for Game 4 on Wednesday.

Brenden Dillon (lower body) participated in the Stars' practice on Tuesday.

"Today was a big step," Dillon said. "I've skated the last two days on my own. I guess I was the best player on the ice the last two days being on my own, but being out here with the guys today was good, getting up to the pace. It is feeling better and better." Stars coach Lindy Ruff cautioned that he's still a long shot to return for Game 4. Dillon hasn't played since April 11.
Apr 22 - 6:37 PM

Brenden Dillon (lower body) skated before practice on Sunday.

"He skated this morning for a short period of time. He's better," coach Lindy Ruff said. "He may have a chance to skate with the team tomorrow, so we're advancing. But he won't be ready to play." He hasn't played since Apr. 11 and his lower-body injury has prevented him from playing in his first career NHL postseason game.
Apr 21 - 12:18 PM

Even if Dillon does, he still might end up missing Game 3 on Monday. Dillon has missed three straight contests dating back to the regular season.
Apr 20 - 10:07 AM

Brenden Dillon will not play Friday in Game 2 against Anaheim.

He is still not skating due to a lower-body injury sustained a week ago. Consider Dillon day-to-day for now.
Apr 18 - 12:56 PM

Brenden Dillon (lower body) isn't ready to return to the Stars' lineup.

Brenden Dillon (lower body) missed Tuesday's practice.

Dillon didn't participate in Sunday's game, but the original plan was to have him skate on Tuesday in preparation for him playing in Game 1 on Wednesday. At this point, we wouldn't be surprised if he misses the Stars' playoff opener against Anaheim.
Apr 15 - 4:45 PM

Brenden Dillon (lower body) didn't play Sunday, but he's expected to be available for Game 1 against Anaheim on Wednesday.

He's projected to return to practice on Tuesday. Dillon has 17 points and 86 penalty minutes in 80 games this season. His physical style should come in handy against the Ducks in the playoffs.
Apr 14 - 1:05 PM

Brenden Dillon left Friday night's 3-0 win over St. Louis with an undisclosed lower-body injury.

That's all we know at the moment so consider Dillon day-to-day for now. With Sunday's game against Phoenix being meaningless, we doubt Dillon will suit up especially with Aaron Rome and Kevin Connauton available to play.
Apr 12 - 1:12 PM

Brenden Dillon was able to return to action on Monday, Mar. 3 from a lower-body injury.

Mar 4 - 1:48 AM

Brenden Dillon (lower body) is a game-time decision for Monday's match against Buffalo.

He practiced mostly alongside injured blueliner Stephane Robidas during the morning skate, so it's doubtful that he'll return. Dillon missed Saturday's game because of a lower-body ailment, but he's expected to participate in Monday's pregame warmup.
