A good portion of Dietrich's career had been backdropped in the minors, particularly when he was in the Devils'

That skill did garner him 2 assists when he did play in New Jersey.
He chose to play overseas after his contract was done with the Devils, playing in Germany for most of the next four
seasons. With that was also a few games in Switzerland and 3 games back in North America with the AHL's Hershey
He would finish his career in North America, though, playing for 3 different minor league teams in 90-91, the last of
them being the Roanoke Valley Rebels of the ECHL.
He became a coach in his hometown after his retirement. He also went to work in the sporting goods business in
becoming the local dealer for Flarrow hockey sticks.
