The couple was originally supposed to be married over the summer, but the rescheduled 2020 playoffs wrecked those plans. Dillon signed a four-year, $15.6 million extension with the Capitals in October. The Capitals originally acquired Dillon from the Sharks in a trade deadline deal for draft picks.
