Darren Dietz (born July 17, 1993) is a Canadian-born Kazakhstani professional ice hockey defenceman. He is currently captain of Barys Nur-Sultan of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL). Dietz was selected by the Montreal Canadiens in the fifth round (138th overall) of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.
Dietz, who has played in the WHL since the 2009–10 season with the Saskatoon Blades, was rewarded for his outstanding play during the 2012–13 WHL season by being named to the 2013 WHL East First All-Star Team.
After completing his entry-level deal with the Canadiens, Dietz was not tendered a qualifying offer, releasing him to free agency. On July 1, 2016, Dietz agreed to a one-year, two-way contract with the Washington Capitals. In the 2016–17 season, Dietz was assigned to continue in the AHL with the Hershey Bears, collecting 6 goals and 12 points in 39 contests from blueline. On March 8, 2017, Dietz was loaned by the Capitals to fellow AHL outfit, the Texas Stars in exchange for Mattias Bäckman. He contributed with 2 assists in 13 games with the Stars to end the season. On June 26, 2017, it was announced that Dietz would not be tendered a new contract offer as a restricted free agent by the Capitals.
