Vince Dunn (born October 29, 1996) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman currently playing for the St. Louis Blues of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was drafted by the Blues in the second round, 56th overall, in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. Dunn won the Stanley Cup in 2019 with the Blues.
Playing with hometown club, the Peterborough Petes at the bantam and midget level, Dunn was originally selected 109th overall by the Niagara IceDogs in the 2012 OHL Priority Selection. Dunn played amateur Junior B hockey in the 2012–13 season with the Thorold Blackhawks of the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League before joining the IceDogs for his major junior career.
In the 2013–14 season with the Niagara IceDogs, Dunn led all rookie defencemen in the OHL by scoring 33 points in 63 games. Following his second season with Niagara in 2014–15, in which he contributed with 56 points in 68 games from the blueline, Dunn was selected by the St. Louis Blues with their first pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. He was soon signed to a three-year, entry-level contract with the Blues on September 25, 2015.
After his three seasons in the OHL, Dunn opted to begin his professional career, assigned by the Blues to their American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Chicago Wolves, for the 2016–17 season. As a rookie, Dunn using his puck moving ability impressively led the Wolves defence in scoring with 13 goals and 45 points in 72 games.
Approaching his second season as a pro, Dunn made the St. Louis Blues opening night roster for the 2017–18 season. He made his NHL debut with the Blues against the defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins, playing a third pairing role in a 5–4 overtime victory on October 4, 2017. On October 12, 2017, Dunn registered his first NHL goal at 18:51 in the third period against the Florida Panthers.
Dunn won the 2019 Stanley Cup Final with the Blues, St. Louis' first Stanley Cup in their 52-year franchise history. Source: Wikipedia
