Dixon played with the Kings from 2001-03.
"I'm really looking forward to just seeing the community," said Dixon. "I came off the farm in Alberta, so Dauphin was actually a pretty big town, and the biggest one I've lived in at that time. It's just nice to get back, see the community and I can't wait to see the new rink and enjoy the home opener at 7:30 that night."
In the 2002-03 season, Dixon played 25 games for the Kings, recording 11 points and 62 penalty minutes.
"It was a lot of fun," said Dixon. "You grow up in Canada and you always want to be a hockey player. I was able to live that dream. Dauphin was a lot of fun, we spent a lot of hours on the bus traveling around Manitoba, but I always look back at that stage in my life and remember how great it was."
Dixon will hit the rink at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday.
