Kevin Jonathan Dallman (Template:Lang-kz; born February 26, 1981) is a Kazakhstani-Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman who currently plays for Barys Astana of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL).
Undrafted, Dallman signed his first professional contract with the Boston Bruins on July 18, 2002 after a successful junior career with Guelph Storm of the Ontario Hockey League. After spending three years with Boston's AHL affiliate the Providence Bruins, Dallman made his debut for the Bruins in the 2005–06 season.
Dallman played 21 games for the Bruins before he was claimed off waivers by the St. Louis Blues on December 5, 2005. After a solid performance with the Blues, Dallman signed as a free agent for the Los Angeles Kings to a two-year contract on July 10, 2006.
After two years in the Kings organization Dallman left for Europe, signing with Barys Astana of the newly formed Kontinental Hockey League on July 24, 2008. He became an offensive leader with Barys Astana, leading the KHL in scoring among defenseman with 28 goals and 30 assists for 58 points in 53 games.
On May 18, 2012 Barys Astana team managers refused to extend Dallman's contract. "We have agreed with his agent that if the team fulfills its task and reaches the final of the tournament, we will return to discussing the contract's extension. However the team did not reach the final and Dallman did not show his best skills in the playoffs. The issue in question was whether to extend his contract or not. Dallman asked for a four-year extension with significant compensation demands. That is why the decision was made not to extend the contract," Barys president Nurlan Orazbayev said. Dallman signed a two-year contract with SKA Saint Petersburg on May 31, 2012. In May 2014 he returned to Barys Astana, signing a three-year contract.
