He was a first round draft pick of the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles in 2001 where he played out his junior career before being drafted to the NHL's Pittsburgh Penguins. For two seasons back to back Dixon graced the roster of the the Canadian team in the World Junior Championships winning Gold and Silver medals.
Dixon spent 2 years in Wilkes Barre Scranton rooming with Spitting Chiclets host and now broadcaster Paul "Biz Nasty" Bissonette. Dixon was traded to Portland and played his 3rd AHL season with them.
After his 3rd season, Dixon made the jump to Europe landing first in Sweden, and then moving from country to country for the next several years including Russia, Finland, and Wales. He currently occupies a roster spot with Cardiff Devils of the EIHL who won their playoffs this past year.
