Vancouver Canucks Assign Zac Dalpe to Utica Comets

The Vancouver Canucks have assigned centre Zac Dalpe to the Utica Comets for a two-week conditioning stint.

The Canucks acquired the 23-year old centre along with Jeremy Welsh from the Carolina Hurricanes on September 28 in exchange for Kellan Tochkin and a fourth round pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

He played in the first six games averaging 4:32, but has sat out the last three games as a healthy scratch with the return of centre Jordan Schroeder.

Dalpe’s stay with the Comets may only be for Saturday night’s game against the Rochester Americans. Schroeder left Saturday’s 3-2 shootout loss against the Pittsburgh Penguins with an injury in the second period.
