Future Watch: Jason Dickinson Hockey Rookie Cards, Stars – Jason Dickinson is the kind of player coaches love. He will do anything to make a play. He’ll beg, borrow, steal, dive for the puck, whatever necessary to setup a scoring chance. This is one of the reasons why the Dallas Stars drafted him 29th overall in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
Playing four years for Guelph in the OHL, he averaged .91 points per game and he potted 84 goals in the process. He had a nice career there and during that time a very successful U18 tournament and eventual gold medal for Team Canada in 2013. After that the pivot was ready to turn pro.
Last season he had 53 points in 73 games including 22 goals, for the Texas Stars in the AHL. He got some playoff experience as well, getting one point in four games. So now he’s close, very close to being an everyday player for an already talented Dallas squad.
At 6′-2″, 200lbs he takes up a lot of room on the ice and he’s fast. He’s able to score down low and many times goes wide to do it. Many see him doing it but he closes on the goalie quickly and that accounts for a fair amount of his goals.
So far, as a member of the Stars, he’s a point-per-game player. He got in one NHL game and scored a goal. That was enough to get his first NHL licensed hockey card. Jason Dickinson has a rookie in 2016-17 Upper Deck MVP Hockey and presumably more to come later this hockey card season.
Jason Dickinson also has an autographed card in 2015-16 Upper Deck AHL Hockey.
A tentative schedule of other early 2016-17 hockey card releases from Upper Deck are as follows:
- O-Pee-Chee – September 7th, 2016
- Artifacts – September 28th, 2016
- UD Series 1 – November 10th, 2016
- Black Diamond – November 30th
Here’s a feature on this exceptional prospect:
Now 21 years old, he can write his own ticket. If he has a great camp the Stars may be able to find a spot for him in the lineup and off he goes.
