Dallas Stars defenseman Brenden Dillon, 22, quickly is making his mark as a talented young defenseman in the NHL. But when the jersey and skates are hung up, Dillon soaks up life in Dallas. He's also pretty darn funny, has a great nickname, and is exactly the type of guy the Stars need.
Kathryn Tappen: Your nickname in the AHL was "Zeus"?
Brenden Dillon: The guys give it to me pretty good. I try to work out hard in the summer and eat healthy. I had my shirt off one day walking through the locker room and next thing you know, they were calling me Zeus from the movie "Hercules."
KT: So that should be a compliment, no?
BD: (laughs) I guess so.
KT: What was your "Welcome to the NHL" moment?
