(Edmonton, AB) – Edmonton Oil Kings general manager Randy Hansch announced today that goaltender Alec Dillon has a season-ending injury.
“It is an unfortunate situation for Alec,” said Hansch. “He put a lot of time into his rehabilitation this past year after his hip surgeries. We will certainly be there supporting him in whatever direction he takes. He has represented our team very well both on and off the ice and has been a valuable contributor to our community.”
The 6’5, 186-pound Victoria, BC native signed with the Oil Kings in 2015 and appeared in seven games to start the season before sustaining a season-ending hip injury. Dillon went 2-2-1 for the club prior to that.
The 20-year-old Dillon was originally drafted by the Los Angeles Kings in the 5th round, 150th overall, in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.
