The defenseman from Calgary, Alberta joined the Stars in 2018, after icing for the University of Calgary in the USports league during the previous season.
During his five years with the Dinos, Dow made 145 appearances and scored 87 points and in his final year, he featured in 34 games, scoring seven goals and assisting 13 times.
Drydn had been playing hockey for over 10 years when he signed with the Stars and would make his professional debut when he arrived in Tayside.
The five-foot-nine-inch blueliner begun his career back in 2008 in the Alberta youth leagues before he joined the Western Hockey League (WHL) and began icing for the Tri-City Americans.
Four seasons later, Dow then chose to join the University of Calgary in 2013 and he would spend the next five years competing in the Canadian college leagues before signing with the Stars in the summer of 2018.
In his rookie year, he scored 38 points (9+29) in 58 games and impressed Stars Head Coach, Omar Pacha, as well as many others around the league, enough to earn a new deal for last season.
In the 2019-2020 season, Drydn played on 48 occasions for the Stars and scored 41 points (14 + 27), while racking up 24 penalty minutes.
Dow has been remarkable over his two years in Tayside and he has always provided a steady hand at the back, as well as some creativity going forward.
His progression was clear at the end of this second year but the 27-year-old will definitely have turned some heads in his direction.
