Zac Dalpe: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Dalpe recorded three points in 16 games with Carolina this season, spending most of his time with the organization's AHL affiliate in Charlotte. From a fantasy perspective, he is at least another year away from having any real impact. He's a talented offensive player, but has yet to find a defined role with the Hurricanes; he tallied 18 goals and 14 assists in 56 games with Charlotte (AHL).
Dalpe, a prospect of the Hurricanes, was frequently shuffled between AHL Charlotte and the parent club in 2010-11. The well-rounded Ontario native collected 57 points (23 G, 34 A) in 61 games with the Checkers, and three goals and an assist during his 15-game sampling of the NHL. As a young center, he’ll need to work on his skills in the face-off circle after losing 22 of 33 draws a season ago. Still, Dalpe will only get better with experience, and one can expect him to assume a bigger role with the Canes this season.
Dalpe will compete with a handful of other young roster hopefuls in what is expected to be a crowded training camp in Raleigh ahead of the 2010-11 regular season. One of the best traits of Dalpe is his versatility, with the potential to become one of the team's better two-way forwards in the future. He could afford to size up a bit, though that could be said about a number of young NHL prospects. Track his progress, even if he ends up needing more experience in the minors, because his natural ability to score goals and dish helpers is tough to ignore.
Dalpe is a prospect developing his game with Ohio State of the CCHL. The ‘Canes snagged the two-way player as recently as the 2008 entry draft (2nd round), so there is plenty of time for Dalpe to bulk up and gain more recognition.
He'll stay in college for the 2008-09 season. If you have a long term draft-and-follow league, he makes an intriguing pick.
