KHL’s all-time points/goals leader among defensemen retires

august 5, 2019
Kevin Dallman may not be a recognizable name among many North American hockey fans, but he’s carved out a name for himself in hockey's record books regardless. After playing 11 years in the KHL, the 38-year-old is retiring as the all-time points and goals leader among defenseman for the entire league. Over the course of 629 games in the KHL, the Canadian-born Dallman has 142 goals and 431 points.

Dallman did have a short-lived NHL career. Undrafted, he signed his first professional contract with the Boston Bruins in 2002 and made his debut with the team in the 2005-2006 season. After playing 21 games for Boston, he was picked up on waivers by St. Louis, and finished out that season with the Blues. During the following off season, he signed a contract with the LA Kings and played 87 games for the team over the next two seasons before leaving for Europe. He finished is NHL career with 31 points (eight goals, 23 assists) in 154 games.

In 2008, Dallman started playing with Barys Astana, a Kazakhstan-based team in the KHL, where he turned into a league leader on defense. After four seasons there, he signed with Russian team SKA Saint Petersburg, where he played for two seasons, winning a league championship in 2012. In 2014, he returned to Barys Astana for five more seasons before recently announcing his retirement.
