Observations:

May 2015 – Zac finished the year with 21 games played and three points in the NHL, he was a regular scratch or send down/call up throughout the year. His two-way contract helped him to see at least some time in the NHL, but he couldn't do anything with the ice time. In the AHL he played 44 games and scored 28 points (0.64 pts/game). In his five year NHL career he has never been able to find his scoring touch like he has in the AHL. He should be off everyone's fantasy radar for the foreseeable future. Unable to develop into a scoring line forward at the NHL level, Dalpe is almost certainly a career AHL forward. Paul Zwambag

 

July 2014 – Not given a qualifying offer by the Canucks, Dalpe may have hit rock bottom. He signed with the Sabres, but it was a two-way deal and he will likely be in the minors in the season ahead. Not draftable in fantasy hockey leagues. Dobber

 

February 2014 – Dalpe has finally established himself as an NHL forward, albeit a fourth liner. In 42 games this season, averaging 7:12 minutes a game, he has produced only six points. That looks better once you put it in perspective though. He has started less than a quarter of his shifts in the offensive zone and is playing with some pretty unskilled line-mates. As a credit to him, he is outshooting all of the other fourth-liners the Canucks have employed this season. If he can continue to work his way up from here, there may be a middle-six future for Zac Dalpe still. Austin Wallace
