Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Dylan McIlrath
Dylan McIlrath was born on April 20, 1992 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The OHLís Moose Jaw Warriors product was drafted in first round, 10th overall, by the New York Rangers in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. McIlrath spent his entire four year WHL career in Moose Jaw where he was known as a feared physical defenseman.

Once he signed his NHL entry-level contract, the New York Rangers assigned him to their AHL affiliate, the Connecticut Whale. He would play most of three seasons in the AHL with the Whale and later the Hartford Wolf Pack. In the 2013-14 season, the Rangers would give McIlrath his first taste of NHL action when he made his NHL debut on December 12, 2013 in a 4-2 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

He would go back to the AHL where he would record back to back years with solid numbers with the Wolf Pack. His play would force the Rangers hands to include him in to their 23 man roster to start the 2015-16 NHL season.

On November 8, 2016, McIlrath was traded by the Rangers to the Florida Panthers. He would suit up in five games for the club, as well as 18 for their AHL affiliate, the Springfield Thunderbirds, before being traded once more. On March 1, 2017, he was sent to the Detroit Red Wings along with a third round draft pick in exchange for Thomas Vanek.
