Playing career[edit]

Friesen played five seasons of college hockey at the University of New Brunswick before turning professional in 2009. He spent time with the ECHL's Utah Grizzlies and Idaho Steelheads, both of the ECHL, and the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the AHL.

On September 22, 2011, Friesen signed a two-way contract with the Chicago Wolves of the AHL, before being optioned to the Missouri Mavericks, the Wolves' CHL affiliate.[1] On October 7, 2011, Friesen was recalled by the Wolves from the Mavericks, before ever playing a game with the Mavericks.[2] On December 3, 2011, Friesen was optioned by the Wolves to the Mavericks again.[2] On December 6, 2011, Friesen was recalled by the Wolves from the Mavericks for a second time.[3]

In the 2012–13 season, Friesen opted to pursue a European career, and signed a contract with German club, the Fischtown Pinguins of the 2nd Bundesliga. Dustin re-signed for a second season with the Pinguins after he was voted the Best Defenseman of the league for the season.

After two successful years in the DEL2, Friesen attracted the attention of the top level German league, and signed a one-year contract with DEL club, ERC Ingolstadt on June 10, 2014.[4]
