Jason Dickinson is stepping up big time.

Since the departure of Greg Rallo, the rookie forward has been a force for the Stars. That's a really good thing because with Rallo's scoring suddenly off the scoresheet, someone had to step up. Dickinson is one of those lending a hand.

This week, that help came in the form of a seven point week that included a game-winning goal and a shootout winner in the Stars' games in Manitoba.

Despite his scoring, Dickinson ended up minus-1 on the week though, so there's always something to be improved on. He has said before that he wants to be known for his defense, so it is certainly a point he will look to improve upon. That being said, he was plus-2 in the game last night which features no special teams goals.
