July 2022 – Delia signed a one-year, league minimum deal with the Vancouver Canucks. He will compete for the backup role behind Thatcher Demko. Nick Richard

June 2022 – Delia has played a collective 32 games with the NHL over the course of four seasons. He played eight games at the NHL level posting a 3.85 G.A.A. He spent most of the 2021/2022 campaign with the Rockford Icehogs and over a 22-game span posted a 0.899 SV%. Over the course of his NHL career he’s posted a -5.6 goals saved above average, which does not bode well for his overall stats and his future within the NHL. In fact, Delia may continue to play for the Blackhawks simply because of how thin their goalie pool is. He is expected to be a UFA this year and a possible change in scenery would be welcome, however, the chances of him becoming a 1A or 1B on another team are low.  Puneet Sharma

June 2020 – Delia was named the Rockford Icehogs Man of the Year. The number one prospect goalie in the system led the goaltending group in wins, save percentage and goals-against average. Off the ice, his endeavors included raising money and awareness for The Autism Awareness Program for Easterseals and the Fatherhood Encouragement Project. This is the second time he has won this award. Tony Carr

April 2020 – As one of three goalies actually under contract for the Blackhawks, you have got to like Delia’s chances of playing next year. There are more moves to be made of course. As with all goaltenders in the system, play well and earn your shot. This is the year everything seems up for grabs. Delia’s previous NHL experience should give him a competitive edge going into camp. Tony Carr

 

May 2019- Delia looks poised to take over as the number two goalie in the system behind veteran netminder Corey Crawford. The extremely agile goalie from Rancho Cucamonga, California, had a good stint in 2019. He saw action in 16 games with the Blackhawks, winning seven games. His record certainly doesn’t tell the whole story, as anyone who watched those games can attest to, he held the Hawks in most of them.

 

Delia brings supreme athleticism to the ice every night and is the foundation for his style. He battles hard on every play, making highlight reel saves seem routine. In order for him to become a full time, NHL goalie, he must be better positionally. Like many younger goalies, he is prone to giving up soft goals at bad times but he shakes those off quickly, ready to make the next save. This training camp is huge for him but competition will be tough this year. If he performs at the level we witnessed last season, his days in the minors may be over. Tony Carr
