On May 18, 2012 Barys Astana team managers refused to extend the Kevin Dallman's contract. The official reason goes like this: “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 play-offs. 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.[5] It was later announced that the former Barys captain had signed a two-year contract with SKA Saint-Petersburg on May 31, 2012.[6]
In May 2014 he returned to Barys Astana, signing a three-year contract.

His uncle, Marty Dallman, played six games for the Toronto Maple Leafs in the late 1980s and played for Austria at the 1994 Winter Olympics.[7]
