After his senior year at BU in 2002, Dyment embarked on a professional playing career that lasted seven years, four of which were in the American Hockey League (AHL). He won the Calder Cup with the Houston Aeros in 2003 and then played a season with the Springfield Falcons before spending two years with the Providence Bruins, where he served as an assistant captain. After his time in the AHL, Dyment was an assistant captain with the 2006-07 Florida Everblades in the ECHL before spending a year playing for the Cortina Squirrels in Italy's Serie A. His final stop was with the ECHL's Trenton Devils, where he served as team captain during their 2008-09 campaign.
Dyment spent two seasons as head coach of the New Hampshire Jr. Monarchs of the United States Premier Hockey League (USPHL). He ran day-to-day operations for the organization, including recruiting, contract negotiation, practices, game preparations and trades. In addition to the USPHL season, he also put together and coached teams for spring and summer showcases.
