"It's been a work in progress all year," he said.
The surgery kept him out of the lineup until early November, and he missed the first eight games with the Texas Stars of the AHL. And once he started playing, it took another couple of months before finally got going.
Dickinson, who’s logged 30 points (9G, 21A) in 55 games with the Texas Stars this season, also discussed his goals going forward.
"The goal every year is to try to make Dallas," he said. "But right now the main goal is to focus on getting my strength up to where it could be this summer and taking it from there. Obviously, last summer I had to miss a lot of training, so this summer is going to be huge for me. I am just worried about getting myself back to where I need to be."
